Here's one thing they don't tell you about perf reviews, career ladders, promos, etc.

Do everything by the book, tie yourself in knots to get the work done _and_ check all the boxes, and all you get is a marginal increase in comp.
However, if you're lucky enough to work in tech and you reached ~staff, then you're better off ignoring the cookie-cutter career ladder. Aim for convex payoffs instead.

What are convex payoffs?
Many of us in tech don't realize our payoff curve is dominated by factors outside intrinsic skill.

Tech people in Romania (where I grew up), work just as hard & smart, but they can't get the $1M comp package, the equity, perks, the 5x IPO, because of market and location.
