End of the day, if you are not happy when you go to bed or you don’t get excited to work, you maybe in the wrong place. Get out, market is hot! Find something you are passionate about.. don’t go with the brands

Oh absolutely, when I say "limited" I just mean there is a limit on how much value the brand provides. You need to be able to back it up. But brands definitely open doors.

Well your TC will be a lot less before bonus and RSU vesting if you leave now and only getting base. Would taking that hit be ok with you?

What role at Meta? (Asking because I'm in the process for a role and worry about landing in the same place)

Meta does not pay well for business roles.

Meta will typically pay biz roles 50-60 percent of technical roles at same level

Not true for higher level - at VP level it’s 3 to 1 (VP of product is $3M, VP of marketing is $1M)
