  • You can negotiate for a bit more, target 270/year average for the full four years because you won’t be getting any refreshers or raises. You can get 180 base, 80k 1st year, 60k second year, 95 shares

    Also don’t forget you can also negotiate with BBG. They can offer 210 base and 60 bonus if you’d like to stay

    That’s a strong offer, especially on signing. Is that typical for amazon or did you have to negotiate for it?

    • Amazon doesn’t offer refreshers unless stock goes down and no raises once you hit 180 in NYC. So it’s good starting but FB will beat easily over the four years
