When I interviewed for a 'lead' wireless network engineering position at google (mountain view), they were only paying 180k at the top end. I wasn't interested in moving there for that salary. The cost of living is so high, you really have to double your salary from the RDU area just to thread water. Then deal with mother fucking traffic. If the average tech position is paying 250k in the bay area, I wasn't seeing it at google or most of the other places I was looking at.

To top it off, the fuckers at google wouldn't give me a range, after I repeatedly told the recruiter that if they wanted me, it was going to have to be a balls out offer. I used glassdoor.com to get some insight.

I am sure that played a part in not progressing through the interview process after a technically superior interview, but in fairness, I just wanted them to offer me so I could turn it down and use it for leverage.

They would not give me feedback on the interview, then had the audacity to send me a survey. I told them, direct quote, that I would give them the same amount of feedback they gave me... "Jack shit". needless to say, I won't be working for them

I have a lot of friends in the 90-100 range and low 100s is def reasonable. Like I said, really just depends on experience and if you negotiate your offer well. As mentioned on the previous page, some people also include bonuses when discussing their pay too which may artificially inflate #s to some extent. Other people I've worked with are consultants who just have an hourly rate which would also artificially inflate #s.

^^ roughly same experience with them, but what I understand is the stock is where you make that up to the high ranges. If you have a negotiating position and they want you then you can expect a huge stock package.

There is definitely a $20k premium on just housing in the bay. When I was there I paid 2x what I was paying in Raleigh and I think it'd be 3x at this point. Some of the other expenses like food and alcohol area out the same as Raleigh--with exception of comparing the high end.

The company I work for has a bonus program, but there hasn't been a bonus since 2009. LOL. Yet they continue to use that as a recruiting tool to lure people in at a lower salary than what I think is average here in RTP area.

To be fair though, we've been bought out twice, but now we're part of a business unit within a multi-billion dollar company, still no bonuses and raises were limited last year to a 3% cap and that's if you were a top performer.

I like the flexibility I have at work. My hours aren't really tracked, and they don't care what I do as long as I get projects done. I get plan of record time on side projects that I design to improve internal processes. However, with all of that, I do think the pay is kinda low - at least for the level that I'm at. If I could find a similar work environment with more $, then that would be great.

I'm just a hair above 75K. Currently doing software QA and making custom automation to test proprietary OS, multiple languages involved. Been doing that since 09. Had to fight to get promoted to engineer II once I got my MS in '10.

Hah, reminds me of IBM talking about their 0-12% bonus and raise structure when I first started when no one would ever get remotely close to 12%, at least not while I was there.

We're always hiring automated QA at Fidelity is your looking to make a move.

^,^^ all the positions I've looked at or been recruited for in the bay area were 150-250k. however, I've been able to demand the same or higher numbers on the east coast with the right companies. I honestly haven't found many companies I really care to move for.

they were all senior/principal/lead positions

[Edited on January 3, 2016 at 2:22 PM. Reason : surprisingly, LA area positions were all in the 250-300K range]

This got passed on to me by a colleague. Don't know anyone specifically looking with the right skills, so thought I'd place it here. PM me if interested, and I'll hook you up with the right people. This may also be posted on NCSU's employment page somewhere, but I haven't looked.

From I'm hearing the top places, Google, Facebook, Apple, Netflix, are now offering $300K as a median and starting out of school can get $200K.

It's almost enough to be able to afford a $1.4 million tiny home with a small yard in the Bay Area.

Anyone getting their leetcode on?

I haven't used codewars yet, but an old coworker that got a job at Amazon used it. I really like leetcode over hacker rank, mainly because of not having to print things to stdout and the way it handles test cases. A lot of the hackerrank ones you end up having to do a lot of setup yourself to even get to the problem.

Without knowing specifics such as how much experience you consider mid senior or what type of development I.e. machine learning vs. something like c, I’d say 100-150.

When you mentioned mid senior, I mistakingly interpreted that as a senior level developer who had been a senior level for a while(mid-range). It sounds like you actually meant mid level OR senior level based on the experience range you mentioned. I’d say 90-130 is pretty accurate given the additional information you provided. Of course there will always be outliers as well as other variables that come into play, like do you work at a profitable company, are there other parts of the compensation package other than money, etc.

^ I talked to a couple recruiters here recently and sounds like 140-150 range. And not a lot of those positions come open either. I'd get recruiters reaching out to me a couple times a week for those roles and higher in NYC. Feels like I could give my info to every recruiter in RTP and they wouldn't have anything interesting for me except a few times a year. I think whenever it's time to move on from the job I just took it's gonna be a remote only search or start my own thing in town.

They bring people over, give them base wages, and run them into the fucking ground while holding corporate green card or whatever type of visa sponsorship they need over their heads.

Kinda feel like working for a Raleigh-based company these days is leaving cash on the table outside of a few regional outliers. Distributed/remote work is so prolific now that you can just shoot for those jobs and look for a Bay Area salary. It's more work, but it does pay off.

Remote work has its downsides, though. I've yet to see a company that has really figured out remote communication, and frankly, it's just less fun than working in an office (IMO). Of course, avoiding the commute and having more flexible hours has plenty of upsides, so it probably comes down to personal preference and life situation.
