Just saw this on LinkedIn. People posting salary for salary transparency. The guy who posted this isn’t even a decade out of college. Good for him for making that kind of money but how the fuck does that happen?

Looks like a sales role, sales pays. It’s really just that. Many sales leaders make more money than executives and finance folks.

This isn’t that crazy. The bonus is good, because tech. But in new york for that role, salary seems right, if not low. Signing bonuses are very common, especially in this market, and especially in tech.

You are extremely underpaid in the agency world. That’s partially while I switched to tech. There’s oodles and oodles of money—especially at ventured-backed and publicly traded companies. Tech cos also pay really well as a retention mechanism (stock units vest after years, encouraging people to stay).

CW1 underpaid is not for what you do at the office but what you produce in broader terms. Advertising helps companies increase their sales by billions, and agencies get paid accordingly. We are underpaid when we don't get a reasonable percentage of that aka you get paid for a fifth of what the agency charges for your services.

Waiting on a response from my internal recruiter friend at TikTok to tell me if this is even real.

Also, perhaps it was just me, but I found the sentiment in the comments absurd. Kudos to the guy for posting, yes, but so many jumping to “everyone is underpaid” vs perhaps considering TikTok is significantly overpaying for talent (whether exceptional or mediocre).

I agree. Something isn’t right here. A comment or on another bowl said that “he’s underpaid especially given his experience”, which is 8 years…

Also a Global Acct Mgr makes around $110 per Glassdoor so I can’t see a Director making nearly 3x that.

Hey all, posting this because I can’t find any specific ranges (all are very wide) but I’m currently in the running for a Cybersecurity analyst role.

I know that cybersecurity is in high demand but I’m curious on what should I expect in terms of salary?

For background: recent grad with “concentration” (minor?) in cybersecurity.
3.80+ GPA and currently have ~2yrs exp in data analytics.
Location: TX
Currently have offer for dev job that’s between 60-75k

Should I continue interview?

Offer 1: $210k flat comp. Work from home. Offer 2: $260k split as $195k base/$65k variable based upon meeting quota with multipliers when exceeding quota. Would be 2-3 hour round trip though. Which?
