Lol, I'm here at 8.5 with 3.5 YOE in backend + computer vision. Now I'm feeling underpaid!

funny

I can't say underpaid or u are in top 20 percentage. But the industry is paying handsomely. If u can get a hike then go get it. What's the harm! If ur question is "can I get more?" , then I will say definitely, u can aim for more.

With 2.5 yoe in data science switched with two offers: Accenture offered 17 lpa base with 1.75 laks as joining bonus with 21 % variable. Previous CTC was 8 lpa. Second company offered 16.96 base lpa with at least 10 fixed bonus per year. So be a part of the great resignation. This won't always be the case. Dollar has gone from 45 to 75 in 11 years . Our tech companies get paid in dollars right by clients. But salary has Remained same for entry tech jobs. Go for it and for more and more. No harm . Make hay while the sum shines. And yeah choose a good company finally not just money. I joined the second company. Its MBB.

Anywhere above 10L for 2.5 years is definitely not underpaid. You would be easily in top 10% of the people in your age segment.

you are on the decent level, if out 13.6, you are getting fixed b/w 11 - 12.8 LPA. Second if you wanna switch, I would suggest, choose "Industry Domain" & then do research buddy. you will find your answers

Interviewed, LOVED the vibe, the managing partner & associate BUT its quite low 65k..I really could see myself in a place like that but sadly I have kids to support and with the current economy, cannot take a paycut. Feeling like the jobs I like are lower paying while the higher paying jobs are in areas I could care less for.

Has anyone seen good traction on the new-ish Google Discovery ads? My teams have had mixed results here so far, and the lack of placement transparency has been a challenge. Writing ads that can appeal to users on the Google Feed, Gmail, and YouTube seems to be the most difficult part, and different accounts (or even campaigns) have wildly different CTRs, likely indicating Google is preferring certain placements for each.
