I raised my TC by almost 100k! I was sitting on a 60k base and 87k OTE with SFDC as a Solutions Engineer. I knew that it was time for me to leave because I was struggling to support my S/O and I on such a tight budget in a mCOL city. Yesterday I got an amazing offer from a top tech company for 177k TC!
