We keep talking about these huge FAANG salaries, but after considering cost of living, are they really paying that much more? For example, I would require a $550k/year in TC in San Fran and $695k in Manhattan to maintain my standard of living on my $250k TC in a low cost of living city. So are FAANG attorneys (senior counsel level) routinely making $500k + in cities like Chicago, Austin, etc.?

Hi everyone! First time using this app. I always wondered, how are other IT help desk jobs? I’ll share how mine is.

I make around 50k which is alright but its hectic as there’s too many tickets and not enough personnel. I heard this is common but I’m not sure.

Based off of Glassdoor, my salary matches Texas’s exactly and SF has the same role at 10k more. Should I show him the Glassdoor page? Don’t want to come off too strong. Please advise

Area: IT Audit and my Year of experience is 10 years and the package offered was 19 LPA. Is it worth accepting the offer? As of WFH as was agreed, however, over a period I have to move to Kochi from Bangalore and my current CTC was 16.7 LPA.

General question: Is there any room in corporate America for real, actionable DE&I discussions and initiatives?

Is this just how it is?
