Amazon sde2 compensation - NYC

New / Eng yeiW31
Mar 25 19 Comments

Base : 175k
Sign on : 82k (year 1) / 64k (year 2)
RSU: 107(5% in first year) - around 190k at today's price.
TC - year 1- 265k
TC - year 2 - 28.5 + 64k +175k = 267k
TC - year 3 and year 4- 251k (I guess they are hoping the stocks would go up)

YOE - 8 years

How many vacation days do we get? Can that be negotiated? Is their 401k matching?

Should I negotiate further? I also have an offer from WeWorks which seems like a nice place but TC is 230k.

Thanks

    That’s a pretty good offer for SDE 2. Happy for you!

    16 days of vacation in year 1, 21 days thereafter.

    401k: 50% match for up to 4%

    Both of these are not negotiable. But if you ask and they give you more, let me know, I would love to know that I am wrong.

      No bonus dude lol. But you can get some bananas.

      All kidding aside, Amazon's comp model is a separate topic of discussion. It's too needlessly complex but the basic point is unless you perform as TT (top tier) you're not going to get much raises. Even TTs (I'm a TT this year) get shafted. I'm a TT SDE2 in Bay Area, and my base salary is less than yours @ $144K.

      Welcome to Amazon. "Go fuck yourself" is our motto.

      Don't they give RSU's for performance bonus?

      Only if you are TT AND if you make below target. But you are TT and make above target, then go fuck yourself. Also if you are not TT then go fuck yourself.

      Someone make an if then clause for this please.

    Take less salary (170) and push for more stocks. Very solid offer.

    For my SDE 1 offer 1.6 years ago I got 120 units but price was 990 back then.

    You can push for more stocks ...if you have competing offers then it might help to negotiate.
