Just spent 2 days interviewing PhD canidate at Stanford. The PhDs said they have offers from 350k and up, sign up bonus, stock options like Intel RSU. I went with a Sr HR manager. The HR guy said the comp is not a issue. I am a PhD out of Cal Tech in AI/basicly applied Math. Really depressing. Plus every guy/gal was Chinese or Indian. HR said they could could

Hard to believe your education level. You can’t spell.
I have two PHD's so I am worth 700K a year.
a level 5 at google easily makes 350k
That is flawed information. 350 K is what a grade 11 makes at Intel. Sr Director. The best a PHD with 5-7 years or so of experience would make starting would be that of a Principal Engineer Sr Grade 9 or entry 10 coming in. Base of 190K Tcomp around 250K. That being said if this PHD has patents and 10 plus years experience it is not unheard of to pay for top talent in the Bay area. However 350K is doubtful.
Which specialty is paying $350,000 to a PhD graduate from USA? I'm planning on doing my PhD and need some ideas in what I should do the research on. I want a high paying job after I graduate.
Why not a few million instead? Don't be cheap.
Sorry continued from above dammed mobile site.
HR said they can work in home country until work permit is approved?! This the new immigration ploicy?
