🤣

As someone who took a job at Google with a “lower title” I can tell you that externally it has not affected me much. Recruiters reach out all the time to pitch roles that would be my next step - scope and seniority wise. It’s all about the narrative and showing what you’ve gained in this new role despite the same title - it’s likely not the same identical role as your last one so lean into what you’ve learned/gained in the new position. Good luck!

Nope, same with me, I made 28k more with the same title at a smaller startup.

For me, this depends on your goal. If you are happy and contented with what you are doing up to few more yrs, then title won’t matter. But if you want to reach managerial/architect roles, then your next title will matter to you ofcourse.

Give the money back for the Job title if you think that title is very important.

No thank you, this is a new role in a different company

I always value money over job title.

Your job title CAN impact your ability to land a job in the future. For example, if you are looking for a manager job but the word "Manager" doesn't appear in any of the job titles on your resume you will struggle to get interviews for Manager jobs even if you have the experience required.

Not at all.

Do you think you're qualified to be in a higher role? Otherwise, it's not really like you're taking a step back, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. Good luck with your new job!

nope, titles are meaningless...it's all about the $$ and the respect. I think your achievements will speak for themselves anyway
