Software engineers are underpaid.
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – April 9, 2018
Software engineers are significantly underpaid.
They hired an outside consultant to confirm that yes, software engineers are underpaid.
They have explicitly stated that they intentionally underpay, but make up for it with work-life balance. When the consultants came back, they admitted "well, we didn't realize we were THAT far under market! we'll split the difference." But they haven't.
New CEO is a godsend, but salary has not improved at all.
Work-life balance is phenomenal
Poor career advancement and abysmal compensation.
