My recruiter for PepsiCo was like "ok if you're looking for 150k then CPG is prob not an industry for you" 🤣 this was for a strategy projects manager role

What position/level did you interview for? I was offered 165k base at senior manager level

Worked with Comp and Ben and can confirm.

Sounds a bit far apart. To get to the 145 it’s like you have to start at 155. 112 to 155 would be quite a counter. But what do I know.

But definitely proceed, I was told I can only get 140-150k, but they offered me 165k on the spot after I received the offer

You did good OP🙌🏻

I would’ve continued thru the interview process. I’ve been offered more then what the recruiter told me during the screening.

Keep going because it is good interview practice. If they don't offer what you want upon passing interviews, you can always decline. If you don't get the offer, then the salary is irrelevant anyway.

Assoc Manager caps at around 130k TC. You can probably get them to bump it there and negotiate a sign on of 20k. Also, blow it out the first year and get promoted to M to get to 150k.

I got a director offer for 185k - I did a hard pass

Yeah but still a significant pay cut - tc wouldn’t come close to my current package
