I am seeing a lot of people put 500-600k TC. Is that compensation package just for Bay Area people? Or are companies moving to national pay and removing the COL aspect? I live in Nashville and 300k TC is like VP pay.

Yes, the extremely high TC you see on here is most probably from a higher level of SWE/technical/managerial position at a company located in a HCOL area (i.e. FAANG companies). However due to the pandemic, companies are still trying to figure out both pay and remote work policies. There are some companies out there that are still paying high TC despite a person working remotely (i.e. Airbnb) whereas others may possibly adjust the TC based on the state you're working remotely from (or require you to come into office if you want to keep the extremely high TC).

It makes sense because if you're working in-person, then you're getting near the average of your area and the only way to get more is to have a higher position (unless you're able to work remotely in a tech-centered team/company while living in a MCOL/LCOL area and not getting major salary/TC adjustments).

Most aren’t moving to national pay, but many top tech companies will pay top 90th percentile for your area or higher. So maybe not 500k but 400k. Which is still good and way better than local/regional companies can offer for an IC or first line mgr role.

Top tech companies pay very well for technical roles.

I need some suggestions/input. I am working in B4 tax compliance but second guessing if I want to keep doing compliance for the rest of my career in PA. Options are to stay in compliance and get promoted to manager soon (next few months but with a small raise to salary due to COVID) or try to switch to a specialty tax group (i.e ITS) and delaying manager promotion for a few years because of the learning curve.

I feel naïve, so any help is appreciated. How easy or difficult is it really to file your own taxes in the US? I’ve been here 2 years now and had used a CPA. However I moved to a different state and the rates here are ridiculous ($~700) and I am wondering if you all do it on your own? The few complications I have are - moved states, need to claim taxes paid on bonus repayment and have a stock sale transaction. Thanks so much!!
