Amazon offer eval for Seattle. Seems low.
I'm a Senior SDE at MS working on ML.
Interviews at Amazon were extremely easy.
Sign-on cash: 60k for 1st year, 45k for second year.
Sign-on RSUs: 90k with 5%, 15%, 40%, 40% vesting.
This sounds kind of small. Lower than I'll be getting in MS considering absence of annual bonuses, bad 401k, ESPP, etc.
I'm thinking of refusing this offer outright, without writing some lengthy explanation with numbers.
This offer is not good, right?
Should I refuse this offer and hope they make a better one? Or should I try to only negotiate it up a little bit?
Should I ask to interview for a higher position?
P.S. Alexa org.
