You can ask whatever you want - but don't be shocked when you don't get the offer. I just interviewed a good candidate that I liked. She was a little light for the position, but I thought she had real potential. When we got around to salary expectations, she asked for roughly what an experienced senior manager consultant (12+ years) would be making (and we are at top end of scale and above other Big 4 competition). She had roughly 3 1/2 years experience, and was interviewing for a roughly 6 year position (new manager). I have no idea where people come up with these numbers.

P1 can you share the number she asked for lol

The story isn’t written well so I highly suspect it’s not true. The only point I agree with is the last point. When you have compensation and bonus discussions, do your homework and present market information/facts you gathered based on your role, years of experience, and so forth. You’ll get respect for knowing your work. At worst, you may get a ‘no’ but you will get respect for standing up for yourself

He got that much salary cause that main story guy had helped homeless a dog by feeding him on rainy day on his first interview day. When he came late to interview he saw the same dog there as CEO and was offered 450K after after the protagonist declined the intial $1 mill offer. 🤪

Is this the ambitious professional equivalent of the airbrushed photos on Instagram and Facebook making people feel ugly because they don't look like the fake photos they see?

Even if this individual story is true it's not representative of what more than 99% of even the highest performers should expect at 3 YOE.

I got an 80% bump in base comp with up to 8% bonus moving to a different firm. When they ask about comp it’s not how much you would do the job for. It’s how much will it take you to:

Leave your network. Security of a big 4. Maybe some 401k money, getting less time off, a hit on prestige.

And that number is why you can command drastically improved salaries.

This seems exaggerated but entirely possible (if all the stars align). If you had someone at 3-4 YOE and then they moved to product and got another 2 YOE at 5-6 YOE total—450 is within reach for the highest paying tech cos. More likely also means that you have a specialized background that the new job is looking for (eg payments infra) and values highly vs. being a generalist.

Tech pays a ridiculous amount.

Today, recruiter said he will be moving HC as he had seen good feedback all around. However something seemed off when he said the role is L4 and will be going ahead with the HC if i confirm I’m ok with the TC range. Not sure how to respond. Does this happen often ?Google
