      That offer doesn’t sound right, stocks breakdown is 5/15/40/40, did you divide the total by 4? So for example your total signon $240K?

    It's a very good offer for 2.5 yoe, sde2. Surprised at the people saying it's low.

    Is it just me, or is this a really strange offer? Huge sign on vs options, it seems.

      Amazon vesting is heavily in years 3 and 4

      Right. But this offer seems to be the opposite of that with the huge sign ons for year 1 and 2. Or am I reading it wrong?

      Amazon stock vests 5/15/40/40. So they give big sign on cash over two years to compensate

      Why don't they just have a normal vesting schedule instead? What's the benefit to doing it that way?

    Here’s the band for L5: 180ish to 230ish. So you’re on the high end.
