Compensation

KPMG offered me 170k at manager level. I was told there will be no merit raises since I am in the highest part of my payband.This is for an internal IT azure architect role.Remote/no Travel.Worth it?

Take a job with no raises? No way. Paybands are arbitrary garbage to justify not rewarding excellent performance.

See, this was my thought as well.

Lol even if KPMG didn’t outright say “no merit raises”, they would probably still leave you holding the bag year over year

I turned it down. The whole no merit raises is dumb.

Understandable, the big 4 don’t hand out rsu refreshers, so they prob wouldn’t of budged on comp increases

I have seen this occur in the past and it’s not that uncommon. I specifically know someone at the director level that has not had a raise for years because they don’t want to move up to PPED and have tapped out of the SM pay band.. They are telling you from the start that you are coming in as high as they can pay you (so they say) and as a manager that is excellent. I am not saying settle but I know plenty of managers well below 150. They can’t have that much of a pay disparity across the manager group especially if your skill is not one that is extremely limited.

Suggest your assessment include a horizon beyond 1-3 years. The questioning here makes me wonder - giver or taker! Winner or piker? I’ll tell you this: your skills can be contracted off shore for a fraction of the price with higher level of commitment and desire to serve. This site reinforces the prevalence of privileged spoiled $&*%s who are ungrateful and fail to focus on what they can contribute vs. salary. You live in America right? Do you not have enough money? If not you spend too much.

What location? 170 is what an average experienced engineer does in NYC, for a manager level I would expect at least 200k, now, since they say is a remote position that sounds really sexy but is coming from KPMG, consulting is not 100% remote working friendly, conclusion, it could be better.

Yeah, they had to get sign off for me to be remote. I'm in San Antonio.. Lot of stuff is adding up that I think I will decline the offer. Ey pinged me today, so I'll see what comes from that.

Hrm, reason I ask is aws offered me 215k, but the tenure seems to be 1 year avg. I had a gig out of the UK, but they are dragging their feet. Thanks for the input

I'm currently a senior and am working on training another senior on a specific project type. She consistently does not get work done. We are going to miss a client deadline today because of this. I've been told by a director to let her fail. But man, I hate missing client deadlines.
