Amazon offer evaluation?

New rUEl16
Sep 14 26 Comments

Just got an offer for L5 at Amazon NYC:
250 TC
175 base
sign-on 68/52 1st/2nd year
90 RSU vested 5, 15, 40, 40

How solid is that? What would be a good way to negotiate?
Also, can someone explain their sign-on? Is it paid monthly or at the end of the year?

I have an upcoming onsite with Google - I wonder if they potentially can beat it for 9 YoE?

      Do you know if it's best to ask for what I want (280) or a bit more (say, 290-300) so they can lowball it to 280?

    5+15+40+50=110 WTF am I missing

    Either way I don’t see 250 TC being sustained over 4 years.

    I think you can ask for more RSUs.
    Which team if you don't mind?

      Thanks! They didn't share much about the team due to NDA, some unreleased product.

    What's that SDE3 or SDE2? Seems kind of low if it's SDE3, good if it's for SDE2.

      It's SDE2. Did you see SDE2 > 300k?

    Looks pretty good. You can probably negotiate on RSUs a little bit

      OP
      Thanks! Should I ask for RSU 90->100? Or should I ask for 270 TC and let them figure it?
