Crazy jobs on linkedin

As they have a profile on linkedin and subscribe to their mailing list, often in the review of available vacancies, see the programmer's C++ with exorbitant salaries. No, I understand, the financial sector, a major city and all. But 200K$-500K$ per year, not too much for the developer?

It is worth to mention that the requirements there is very solid (expert in C++, STL, Boost), but nevertheless...

How do you think in such companies are the interviews going? Live a week at the hotel, with each day tasks, interviews, challenges? Does anyone have an example?

surely gross refers to, no?
Well, do not net the same :) - Caterina74 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:50
Although, I don't know should ask those who have experience... But I think that the specified amount prior to the payment of all taxes and deductions. - Caterina74 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:53

For programmers in the financial area, working in companies on Wall Street (Finance) — salary 150K (gross) — normal. But they want you to work minimum 12 hours a day, often 16 hours. Nervous, the family did not see, etc. I was interviewing for such a position, when in the end told what was happening — I refused (family, children, etc.).

Salary 250K and above, even for a programmer in Finance is science fiction (recruiting spam), but perhaps these data include bonuses, which in principle can be very large (and live and not be depending on the performance of the company in the quarter/year, etc.).
And I have had no illusions about the 8-hour workday. It is clear that such wages of the employee just will not pay. But still, I'd like to experience, even briefly, in the area and the environment. Thanks for the comment. - Caterina74 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:52

And there is no additional trebovanii fine print: "to work 24 hours a day, live and sleep in the office"?
It is not surprising, but no. However, I have thought the same there :) - Caterina74 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:54

This is normal, the other half will take taxes out of it.
