I got offered a pay raise going into tech

No. Generalizing, a 0-15% bump seems to be the mode with similar base, lower bonus, higher equity being a common scheme

Part of it is the perception of lek, poor exit opportunities from here in general

@OP explain the poor exit opps perception. Why do you think that is? I have observed the opposite. My friends from the office are all in high paying PE and corp strat roles. My inbox is flooded...

SC1&2, I was severely underpaid which was the main reason I was looking to get out. Yes, based in the Bay Area and the new base alone is about a 28% bump of my total consulting comp. I feel like what I’m making now is what I should’ve been making in consulting (or close to it). But I also enjoy the industry work I’m doing now more than consulting, maybe because I was starting to feel burnt out before I actually made the jump. The role is project management for marketing automation.

Same as S1, I left for tech and got a decent raise

What type of roles? @S1 and C1

No. I’m in tech and currently in negotiations for a much higher salary.

What kind of roles in tech?

No. I left for an industrials company as a M and got a 12% base bump + larger bonus + equity. Total expected comp was almost $50k/year higher.

Yes - please what type of tech roles are you going to?

Also, does it matter what your tenure is when you're looking to jump? As a younger staff are you still expecting a pay jump?

I came from HR and looking for nice fat raise when i go back to industry

I’m with you LEK. I’m a post MBA consultant making 155K base. Hard to find roles with that base for a manager/senior manager level in industry. Maybe I’m being too picky?

LEK has good exit opps. @SC1 - Corp strategy in tech

Also in the same boat. Post MBA at ~155 base and I feel finding a role that’s not director bas been a challenge

S&1- Haha does it? Into what exactly?

FWIW - I was at $160k base when I left

ATK1 - are you looking for roles more senior to director or junior to director? Perhaps manager level role? May I ask what industry / field are you in?

Most LEK replies ever!

My company is bleeding talent! I took up a PM role 3 months ago at a not-so-hot smaller tech company. When I joined there were 8 PMs. Today, 6 of those have quit and 3 of those are in the past 3 weeks. We’ve hired 3 more since I joined. I haven’t built deep enough relationships here to probe about their reasons for leaving, but I’m really concerned. The company is undergoing many changing priorities and acquisitions in play which definitely could be why. What would you do in my shoes?

I think (fingers crossed) that I am about to get a job offer for a management role. It would be a 45 percent pay increase and I honestly might be able to negotiate it to up to 55, but I just don’t feel excited about it. It’s a smaller company then where I am now, but still a decent size and great reputation, but the team is much smaller. I really want to be more excited because I know it’s a good opportunity. Any advice?
