You can honestly get some pretty juicy deals with any of those. You should just pick the one that's most aligned with your skills and interests.

I agree with this. the ranges for each of those roles is within 10-20k on average, and usually the difference can be tied more to employer than actual role. If you like Javascript, html, react, and other front-end tech way more than go, C#, rust, etc. then do front end. At the end of the day, your skill in that role is going to still be the #1 factor in pay, and more often than not, liking your tech stack is going to be worth any small difference in pay.

From my experience front-end pays the worst. Back-end is an umbrella term for many different specialties.

It depends on the company. I've seen some of these devs get paid anywhere from $75k - $200k.

Compensation can go way higher than that. Amazon SDEs can hit 500k for example

If you’re chasing the money, neither long term. Management is where the money is. Become a software manager and you’re likely $60-100k > the engineers.

In like consulting sure, in tech architects and principal engineers make the big money

It really depends on more factors than just what you have listed. Particularly the city of the job, or at least the greater metro area. Remote jobs are not always as high paying. Generally backend pays more than frontend. But again, that would vary widely depending on so many factors.

If you want to make more money, changing employers is the most impactful way to do that.

Hi all, may I know what is the salary of a senior consultant in Deloitte Australia? What should I ask for?

So finally after so many applications and interviews and rejections I landed a job finally. They negotiated with me well 100k salary decent benefits. I’ll be the first HR for the US for them, they are a China-based company so this will be an interesting challenge for me. I’m gonna take it three months at a time. Not get too excited be strictly business and just keep on trucking just in case if the worst happens again. My last employer caused damage so treading lightly. Any tips going in to this?

My dream would be to do full stack but thats not an option. Scared of getting pigeon holed. Any suggestions as to what to do / tips?
