1) Not uncommon for a staff engineer to make more than their boss (staff is going to be >$400k at least). Middle management (especially the lower levels) is typically not valued much relative to engineers at these companies (IME). Additionally, there usually isn't that *much* middle management. In my case there are only three people between me and the CTO at a company of several thousand.Invictus002 wrote: ↑Fri Oct 04, 2019 3:13 pmIn FAANGs, do software engineers get paid more than people who are couple of level up
Those people couple of levels up (not codes, just people managers/project /product) managers/directors etc , get paid even higher?
If the later is true, those categories should be pulling in $1M+ a year, which is what CEOs in other industries and companies make. CEO jobs are lot more stressful.
Those CEOs of mid level companies have skills that these product/project managers/directors have, why would they not just be one of them @FAANG, instead?
2) Lots of companies *do* lose their management and product staff to tech companies.
