Amazon New Grad Offer

Hey everyone!

I just got an offer from Amazon (!), and I'm sure you get this question a lot: "Is this a good offer?"

On the table:
108k Salary
70k RSU, 4 year schedule (5, 15, 40, 40)
34k + 24k signing, first and second year respectively

The position is for Seattle, SDE1

I think this offer is pretty standard, is that correct? Has anyone negotiated higher than that?

Thanks! :)

      It's not just two Online Assessments, there are one and three round final interviews as well.

    Pretty good for new grad L4. Going to be hard to negotiate any higher unless you have competing offers.

      Online assessment, which then turned into a blitz in-person, I think I did okay, though I fumbled some of the medium questions, but I explained my process throughly before time was up!

      I’ve heard the 34k signing is the returning intern package

      First signing is done entirely in your first paycheck. Second is done monthly during your second year

      This is wrong. I joined as new grad in January, got promoted Q4 and was given a few stock grants for my second year as salary bump wasn’t enough to get me into the target comp range

      Depends on how much stock goes up, stock was only up 30 percent or so since I joined if it was in 2000s I’d be outta luck.

    I think it's a pretty standard offer from Amazon. Other big companies (f,g,m) can do better if you arent set on Amazon.

      How do I get an interview with MS? I gave them my resume at a career fair, applied in September, and got a referral over a month ago and they're ghosting me. I know they interviewed one person from my school who had a much worse resume than me but maybe he had a referral earlier than I did.

      OP's offer is the standard new grad package, it is also non-negotiable.
