Amazon SDE L5 Offer seems lowball?

Got an offer from Amazon SoCal.

YOE: ~2 yr

155k+75+55k+40k = 210~220 TC

AFAIK I should probably ask for more RSU/sign on. What target do you think would be good to ask for? (like ask for 90 RSU and negotiate to 85) Thanks in advance!

    I have a lower offer and I have a ten years of experience and a masters degree. This is not remotely lowball for your experience or within the band

      I see.. Yeah too harsh to say its a lowball. Its mid-tire I guess.

      If you come to amazon, the first thing you have to realize is that there’s no frills and pay isn’t going to be great compared to other tech companies in the same tier. Bezos thinks everyone else should be frugal

    75 RSUs over 4 yrs? If yes, total comp for 1st year looks like ~230k. This is good offer for l5

    40k worth of RSUs? Or 40 RSU count? In both cases its low.

      Ah totally misread the numbers. I think you should push for more RSU count, somewhere close to ~100

      Yes def give it a try. If they don’t increase RSUs, they might give more joining bonus.
