I recently got an offer from Amazon for SDE2. The offer says that I would be paid 1st year and 2nd year sign-on bonus on installment every month.
AFAIK, the first year bonus is paid in lump sum.
Is that normal for Amazon?
- Amazon fhf5ndt9Yes, it's to make up for the 5, 15, 40, 40 vesting. You get cash to balance it out
- Your question is confusing. In episode one you note the bonus is paid out in installment every month.
In episode 2, your question is about lump sum.
It’s not a lump sum (one big payment on first paycheck), its installments. Installments is good because then you don’t have to pay anything back if you leave before end of year 2.
