Big Data Hype: a Salary of 1 Million USD – Lutz Finger

See on Scoop.itData Nerd’s Corner

A headhunter offered 1 million USD plus for a big data guy. The hype is on. If you love data you should not take such a job.

Carla Gentry CSPO‘s insight:

Should you ride the hype for US$1,000,000? Maybe even change the model of renumeration? You get paid per TerraByte you touch? Well, most likely you shouldn’t take this job if I love data. This offer shows something more than desperation. This company doesn’t know anything about data; it seems that it hasn’t even investigated what the price range for big data guys is (see here KDnuggets salary overview); Maybe you might want to double or triple those averages when you are looking for a senior manager.
