    What did the finally offer? In my opinion, there's no way Adobe would give 170k. You could however negotiate signing bonus.

      They offered me 146k base with 150k rsu over 4 years, 50k signing bonus and 7% annual bonus and they said that was their best and final offer for l3. This was despite having a competing offer of 250k Tc per year

      So what do u suggest should I ask for more sign in bonus and rsu ?
      May 14
    • Jet.com / Eng coderb
      Yeah it would help if you can get a competing offer. In general they give less rsus compared to other companies but sign on can be more.

    I have a competing offer but I don't want to join that company

      You know that but Adobe does not. As long as it is a better offer, you can try to negotiate.

      Hmmm what if they reject me after that ? Does that happen
      May 14

      Usually, not if it's the first second round of negotiation. There is always that chance. You could tell Adobe that if you match the offer or beat them, I can give you commitment that i will sign the offer the same day so they are sure about your intentions.

      Learn negotiation. Nobody rejects you for negotiation try. What worst they can say? No revision in offer.

    • Jet.com / Eng coderb
      That's not true. Sometimes they do rescind offers. If you have gone through multiple negotiations, I have a few friemds that have had offers taken back.
      May 15
    • Jet.com / Eng coderb
      But it looks like, you have met your expectations in terms of total comp. One thing I have learnt on blind is that you will always make less than some person or the other. If you are satisfied with what they gave, you should stop comparing.

      There is no harm in negotiation at least the first 2 rounds. First offer is always lowballed by organization. Second is serious though. Third is often the take it or leave it.

      Ya I I'll try once and then I I'll sign the offer

      If it's the first offer they gave with out negotiation, I do have tips for you. ;)

    Final offer
    160k base
    23k 1st + 10 second year sign in
    140k stocks
    7% bonus

    And giving me just 1week for offer acceptance

    • 140k initial grant, vesting over 4 years?

      And what’s their yearly stock refresher if any?

    • Yahoo QkbC31
      OP
      No idea might be based on performance or something
      But heard that it is 100 over 3 years
      May 15
    • Its an OK offer...essentially —

      160k + 11k bonus + 35k stocks + 5k bonus over 4 years.

      Which is 211 TC. Which is good for 5 YOE, but at a FAANG or unicorn, you could be looking at 300k.

      But it’s entirely up to you — not sure if you’re in the Bay Area and would like to interview with a FAANG or whatever — just something to keep in mind.

      Ya I had calls from faang
      But timeline won't match now and yes I m in bay
      May 16
    • If you can, finish interviewing with FAANG. Worse case scenario you don’t get it, so what.

      Ignore Adobe’s threats of rescinding the offer. They’re just saying that so you don’t finish interviews elsewhere, because they know their offer isn’t very competitive.

      Offers don’t expire in Silicon Valley.

      How did you end up negotiating above your last offer? Did you have competing offers?

    Is that year bonus guaranteed? Not a bad offer but might be quite some room for more stocks?

      OP
      Is it a right compensation to ask for ? They have not yet given the offer recruiter called for expectation and i said this
