Where are good companies to apply for to get into data science? My offer right now for data science in the big4 is only 66k and I definitely can’t go that low. Industrial engineering background with experience in analytics.

I think there's a lot of startups that might be worth looking into...but personally, I would go for the big 4 first and then exit out

Data science job descriptions tend to vary a lot. I would say compensation depends on what skill you know. 60k definitely sounds like lower end of the spectrum and is probably more of a business analyst job and assuming it doesn't expect you to know any programming language. It would be helpful if you share what you know and your experience.

Agree that you should probably aim for a smaller companies to start out. Get yourself a portfolio of awesome things you have built, put as much as you can on GitHub, maybe meet some people, and go back out on the market again.

Hey folks, I am new here. Need some advice. The situation is, I just have 6 months of work ex. A week before, I was retained by my company against an offer with almost 80% hike.
