Same boat, 7 years exp and MBA. $110k. Best strategy for boosting base salary?

Get another offer. Negotiate 25-30% more and leave. You are not going to get huge jumps by staying with one company. Although, you will lose your network.

Honestly depends. Financial services is just an industry and doesn’t mean anything regarding how much you get paid. What type of consulting are you doing?

Easily under paid by 30 %

Same but in IT Security but came from very small firms before starting my current role early this year

Yes this is low. Which firm?

Are you worth more though? Someone with 3y of experience can be way better than someone with 7y of experience... so it depends what you bring to the table

Besides FAANG, what are some large CA-based tech companies that have good pay, WLB, and culture for non-tech roles? Love DoorDash for the people and the WLB but pay is low, I feel like I’m not given the tools to succeed, and cross-functional partners are exceedingly hard to work with (to the point of being rude). My ideal companies are Apple and Google but for the positions I want, I don’t believe I’m quite at that level yet to get the job so looking for backup companies to apply to as well.

Both my wife and I work for FAANG companies. As the stock has recently gone through the roof I was wondering if we should try to protect the gains (covered call/put options).
