Not SDE...with AWS ProServe in Atlanta.

L5
Base: 150k
Sign-on: 43k/36k
RSU: 63 (5/15/20/20)

Seems good to me, but I know very little about RSUs and if I should consider them as cash in hand once vested.

Current TC: 150k
YOE: 10

    Amazon's vesting schedule is so ridiculous.

      The cash year 1-2 offsets the less shares.

      I guess but still it seems petty

      Why petty? I'm not a huge fan of our comp but it works out...

      For this candidate here is comp per year...

      Y1: 150K + 43K + 3 shares
      Y2: 150K + 36K + 10 shares
      Y3: 150K + 25 shares
      Y4: 150K + 25 shares
      (might be off on 1 share in Y2 vs 3-4).

      TC per year current price of $1750:
      Y1: 198,250
      Y2: 201,750
      Y3: 193, 750
      Y4: 193,750

      However, Amazon uses 15% growth per year for expected comp of:
      Y1: 199, 037
      Y2: 206, 829
      Y3: 216, 538
      Y4: 226,519

      Yeah I did the math out over the first 4 years and they're pretty steady even without the possibility of the annual stock bonus.

      Just so you can enter with good expectations - you are unlikely to get any more stocks vesting before year 4-5 (granted in year 3 or4).

      Even with promotion and good ratings historically the stock has outperformed your expected value. Amazon will consider current price of your existing grant when deciding future compensation changes.

      Over first 3 years best your going do is move that 150k base up towards 160k.

    Good offer esp for Atlanta, it is almost 400k equivalent in Seattle. Go for it.

    I just got 160 base, 43, 32 sign on and only 53 rsu. Target tc is 206k for L5 engagement manager. Was told this is pretty top of the L5 band for role. Oh and 20 yoe. Was also told put on fast track for L6 promotion but started at L5 due to lack of aws and large scale corporate experience.

  • Thatโ€™s not a bad offer for non-SDE lv5.
