In DC ? About 450k if you can swing a FAANG offer for 40 hours of work


SA tc will be ~250k

You shouldn’t settle for less than 200k


That's what I was thinking, but got an offer today for ~140 + variable bonus (probably 10-20k) and am interviewing for another manager role in consulting that will be 155 base + 15-20% bonus. Might just be the roles I'm looking at and I'm not applying to the right companies

Apply to AWS/gcp for sales engineering gigs. You can go close to 250-300 depending on skills and interview performance.
