I’m sure you would - but would be at a director lvl to even be considered asking for that much money. Major banks pay peanuts!!

Sure - depends on the field, but definitely possible

Absolutely, I don't see why not.

Tech pays more. Simple answer.

Split the difference and go Fintech lol what area of the country though? Location will make a huge difference. You can easily get north of $200k in NYC. I just received an associate director offer from a FinTech for $231k and I only have 8 YoE.

Hi! I am trying to conduct some competitive analysis specifically on a set of metrics (e.g. latency) for the purpose of benchmarking.
The challenge here is that most of these metrics are not public, so I'm curious how others may have approached similar initiatives. I think some anecdotal data points can be gathered through the sales team but such data obviously comes with a tone of caveats on accuracy.

I was brought into a new org last year as a PM for a single product line. I realized that the small team is spending so much time on steady state maintenance that an enhancement roadmap is moot b/c there’s very little resourcing to tackle it.

The newest solution is create 2 or more teams to split the data integration piece (& fix it) & have a team manage application. Both of which I’m meant to PM. Do I have rights to a discussion about an increase in pay for the increase is responsibility?

I need some advice. My manager (CPO) wants to restructure his team and make everyone the level below him a ‘head of’. When he suggested it to me I immediately pushed back as I don’t feel experienced enough to take that role (I have 3 YOE doing product work within consulting and 1 YOE at the startup I’m working at now). His counter was that I wouldn’t immediately see a change in responsibilities or pay until we secure our series B which is months away….
