In Business Development, $173k base, 17,5% bonus and $80k RSU. 11 YOE. I gave a specific salary number versus a range when I was interviewing and feel like that set me back. I’ve done research and at established startups and tech companies base salary range is $170k-$280k for my role. Been in this position for a little over a year and have been promoted once. Any advice on adjusting my base? Should I get an offer from somewhere else and go to HR?

You shouldn't need an offer to have this conversation with HR. If your research aligns with the market dynamics, HR can facilitate this conversation for you. You should also highlight this as a concern to your Manager.

That actually sounds like an excellent package for most companies but, sure, if you can leverage another offer go for it

Hello Fishes,

Lots of people kept asking for guidance to enter in Data Science field on Fishbowl. I have done a lot of courses and I found the best course for Data science for anyone. I have given more than 20 interviews in Data Science in more than 10 companies. I rarely missed any question in Data Science. I have switched to a product base company with 180% hike. I only have 2 YOE and my current CTC above 20LPA.

I have uploaded course on MEGA. DM me if you want link, it’s free.
