Hi,

I got an offer from Amazon Luxembourg as SDE 1.

TC : 60k Euro base + 10k Euro sign-on bonus + 8k Euro for the second year + 35k Euro Stocks (over 4years)

Is this a good compensation ?
How to negotiate ?
What's the avg in Luxembourg ?

    If I recall correctly, all the new grad packages are standard. Unless you have a competing offer, I doubt that HR would be willing to negotiate

      All people saying you cannot negociate a fresh grad offer is bullshit! When I asked here, all told me you shouldnt. But I did, and GOT a smalll increase of 3.5% in base salary. But unfortunately you signed :/ Never sign directly. Take your time and think if its what you need.

      @sptk67 I got an offer too. How did you negotiate? They gave me 8K bonus and 60K base. No relocation.

    1) Is the Sign-On bonus of EUR 10k in the first year or is it the total of the 2 years?
    2) How many RSUs have you got (in Nr. not eq in cash)?
    3) immigration status? Do you come from an EU country?

      Weird offer because:
      1) Never heard or HR telling cash instead of number of RSUs.
      2) Never heard of offer giving just Sign-On bonus for first year but not for second year.

      Questions:
      1) Did they give you a 2nd part of Sign-On bonus in the 2nd year that you didnt disclose here or they did they give you all-in-all 10k Sign-On just for first year?
      2) Where do you come from?

      So your TC posted here is wrong. Please edit :) TC is base salary + total sign-on for 2 years + total RSUs number (or value in $)

      I thought TC is first year's total Compensation.

    You can negotiate before signing if you have competing offers.
