Yeah easiest way to make more money quickly is to jump. If you’re well-liked, your firm could potentially match, or exceed, the offer and you don’t have to start from scratch socially/politically.

Short term - jump. Long term - it depends based on your connections, performance, how quickly you get promoted etc

This generation needs to focus less on their salary and more on the amount of money they make.

Yes but if you take home more money you can buy more stuff. A higher salary only means you’re richer. But what for?

Jumping to another firm, but if you get a competing offer AND are respected within your firm, you can certainly use that offer to leverage higher comp. Just be ready for them to tell you to pound sand. It doesn’t have to be an adversarial conversation. In fact, I’ve broached it with coaches in the past, expressing my concern and asking their practical advice. Have received the same feedback that “going back to the well” is the best way to get comp increases. Just know that you can only go back once or twice - so don’t go back for $30k, make it count.

Haha yeah would only go into a conversation planning to leverage a competing offer if it’s an offer i would be happy taking. Definitely not unlikely they’ll say sayonara.

For those that have been on a split-start, does Google adjust your salary for local markets? My salary while I wait for my EU passport is €66k which equates to $74k USD, however I can see that the role I have has a higher AVG. starting salary, stateside. Will they adjust for local market, or simply just convert my salary to local currency? I make $90k rn so it’d be a bummer to start making considerably less while I wait 3mo’s to move abroad.

What’s the salary range for a program manager at Google? Or even generally in industry? Glassdoor is not very helpful.

do you ask to know the salary of a job during the first interview or do you go through the whole process (could be 2 total interviews, could be 5) to ask? The interview process is such a mental and time drain that I honestly don’t even want to go through it unless I know the salary is something Im interested in.
