      Bay area tc is higher, but this is higher than bay area. Even the base is 10k more than new grad. It's a different thing if you interviewed for sde1 and not new grad

    Pretty high. My offer was 108k base, 24k signon and 70k/4 yrs. Your offer is pretty high. My was a standard full time University offer. No negotiation.

      I had an onsite with 5 rounds, maybe that’s why?
      Because the new grad offers with the figures you mentioned still are the same. Amazon hiring loads with those numbers too.

    Your base is similar to many newly promoted sde2s I know, 134k.

    You won't get much on promo, if stock grows like crazy.

    Negotiate more stocks.

      You think stock will break $2k and run away...

      It definitely won't fall.

      So, let's say 175k is total TC. I would much rather do 110k base + 65 stocks than 130k base and 45 stocks.
      Reason - on promo base will go up to 134k anyways. Better to take a chance on stock growth.

    This a really good SDE1 offer unless Amazon has increased how much they pay. This is pretty close to the SDE2 band.

      My recruiter told this is the last band for SDE1
