A few answers to some of the questions.

- agreed I was underpaid (Deloitte)
- new role is cyber leadership, it’s tech/program hybrid (I’m not SDE, DS)
- the TC is a blend of base + bonus for two years (so, 490 in year 1 and 2); after year two, TC is blend of base + stock

D7 what exactly is cyber? Seems like a broad term

Congrats! Doing what. 490k sounds like good money with loads of headache. Good on you!!

likefunny

You mean without right?

Does your TC include all the equity at once? Or did you split it out over the vesting period and you are actually making 490k every year. Because that is an insane comp.

Looks like OP isn’t interested in giving deets about TC breakdown

Could you break the 490k down. Seems like you included total rsu usually broken over 4 years in your total comp

Misleading post. $490k in a non SWE role is only possible at L8 (director) and above. A big 4 or even MBB manager (with 11 YOE) typically won’t get an interview for senior manager level, let alone director.

Also, joining bonus is split across first 2 years at Amazon. So, per OP their offer letter must have read $160k base + $680k joining bonus, which sounds absurd (I am familiar with Amazon’s compensation, since I worked their)

Agreed. I left Deloitte in December and went to a startup. We recently went public and while my annual salary, bonus, and equity is $392k, the RSUs I got as a signing bonus are worth ~$2m.

Applied to EY (with referral). Phone screen 2 days later. Interviews (x3) the following week (on a Friday). Sent follow-up notes to interviewers. Two of three responded. Week past interviews, sent follow-up to HR (interview scheduler and screener). No response.

Should I have received feedback about interviews?

Should I continue to follow-up?

Should I consider this a loss and move on?

Please advise.
