I’ve built a reputation I’m proud of @ my company. I’m underpaid for what I do (started as an intern) & recently asked for a market adjustment. Management acknowledged that I’m undervalued & plans to set me up for a promotion. It’d come with more responsibility, which doesn’t align with my goals.

Is it wise for me to remain open to a promotion just for increased pay? Or should I be transparent with management about my goals (& possibly not get the pay I’m asking for)? Or any other tips?

Depends on how much pay matters to you. If you get the promotion and pay bump, you’re probably still going to be underpaid for that promotion, which puts you back where you started. If you want to be paid in line with the value you bring you’re almost certainly going to have to leave where you are at now for a new company, so ask yourself is being comfortable at your current company while underpaid a better situation than joining a new company and getting paid your worth? Only you can come to that conclusion

It’s always the ultimate question no matter where you go “am I being paid what I’m worth/will I be paid my worth?” Luckily, we are in the hottest candidate market in US history in terms of better benefits, pay, working situations. Have confidence in yourself and your worth and you’ll almost certainly make the right decision🙂

Hello Everyone,

I have 4.3 YOE currently and I was offered Engr II - Full Stack position in VDSI. But after doing some research it seems Engr II is usually for YOE between 2 and 4. Is this correct? Will there be a problem for me if I take up this position with my YOE?
Since I am a lateral entry, I think promotion to Engr III also would take a lot of time.

Also can you please let me know the current designation hierarchy in VDSI?

I received an offer for a big gaming company! I was interviewing for an admin position where the pay was flexible. Well the recruiter said they wanted to create a position for me doing the same thing but more data entry. However, the pay was a little bit lower & there’s was NO FLEXIBILITY!! Taking this would mean I would take a 5k Paycut. I know it’s not a lot, But the drive is further. Benefits are great w/bonuses. I’m not sure if I should accept? I know I can get a higher pay elsewhere.
