Also, you didn't mention your salary and other benefits. Without that information, it's difficult to address your question/concerns.


Your salary and location would be another factor to consider.


I am live in Pennsylvania United States

Really interesting career path that as a chemical engineer with strong interest in economics, seems to be pretty enticing! What made you go in that direction vs engineering/managing?

I’m an academic working at a research institute. I’m pivoting into tech. Got an offer at a fantastic company, but I’d need to take a $5k pay cut. (My current gig pays pretty well.)

Any advice?

Appreciate your suggestions/input.

Would there be any scope of increment going forward?

Just found out that Deloitte U.K. (London office) new managers total compensation is £59k ($78k) plus a discretionary annual bonus of up to £3k ($4k). In Tax, seems to be higher in consulting. Surely this cannot be right?

Fine the pension seems great I would have an 8% contribution and the firm matches that 100%, 25 days annual leave which apparently you are encouraged to take, but only earning $78-82k as a manager in London?

Need your valuable thought process and idea..

Was offered a new job recently in a big pharma company:
Role: engineering lead (no direct reports)
Pay: 140K base + 10% annual bonus + yearly stocks
YOE : 5 years with Masters degree

I am confused if this is on higher or lower end salary range for lead roles as they are SMEs. Would appreciate some input.

Zscaler offered me position in Amsterdam for senior Qa. Offering 85k base pay and 20k equity for 4 years. I am 12 year experienced, feel lowballed with the offer.

💲For those who DON'T think a six figure salary is possible:

👉Just ask for it. Really, you would be surprised. Might be easier to switch to a new company and ask. I did that 3 years into my career.

And 🛑 wasting your time at a company that under-values you severely. Sometimes switching companies every 2 years or so will allow you to keep raising the bar for yourself.
