If you're good and know AWS really good, know automation, containers and can do node.js you could make 115-160k depending on how much hand in experience and knowledge you have.

In public sector? I’d be surprised if he broke 130k.

If tech, $100-$115k if you’re especially good, $90k otherwise. If you go into financial management consulting (Guidehouse NSS) you might swing $100k if you’re cool with that line of work. If you weren’t at Deloitte or similar already I’d say $90k

I’m turning down a higher role with higher pay (12% higher) solely because the HR team has been extremely unhelpful throughout the decision making process. From not getting responses for weeks, to consistently receiving “I don’t know, let me follow up” then not receiving follow ups, and everything in between. All of the interviews leading up to the offer was great, but then red flags started popping up making me feel very uneasy joining this company. Have you ever denied an offer because of HR??
