Comments?. Low ball?.
It does seem to be somewhere in the ball park from other posts I have seen.
- Seattle is a standard market. Most big cities in the US are. NYC and Bay Area are premium.
L4 i am not as sure of, no one gets promoted to L4. I can look it up if critical, but top is 160k TCT.
L6 is 240k(250k is where promos go, so this is effective bottom)-375k TCT
I don’t know L7, haven’t promoted anyone there. I think the range starts at 400k, don’t know where it tops off.Nov 10, 2018 1
- That’s nearly identical to my SDE 2 offer from 2 years ago (though my RSUs are 160, based on $850/sh). Big difference is that I had 20 yoe and foolishly settled for a job way beneath my skills. But it was interesting experience, I don’t need it or the cheap comp anymore (even with doubled RSUs it’s crap pay for my abilities).
- Tesla / Eng FuckZuckymoreYou are making 130 currently. How can you even possibly say lowball
- I wanted to add in the initial post that I don't want comparative consideration. I skipped it because I wanted to see what people think and from what company they are. This is going to help me in proper evaluation of future options.
Maybe I'm kidding. Maybe I'm not. Who cares?. It's Friday.
I've dropped higher (maybe not better?) offers before because I liked my team too much so there's that.
