Person's current job. L65 swe at msft. Current salary: 190k, bonus:40-50k, stock:120k. Tc:400k.
Total stock is 280k

New job offer: 200k. Bonus: at least 25%, times performance multiplier. Stock is 320k. I will not tell name of new company.

I don't think this is that competitive of an offer but what do i know? Thoughts.

    new TC is 200+ 50 + 80 = 330TC. So, TC wise you are taking a pay cut of 70K but Stockwise you are getting roughly ~40K/4 =10k jump.

    Overall- compwise, it’s a No-Go

    Strictly no if it’s a Bay Area based role. Maybe yes if it’s in Seattle based on your career direction.

    is the new company pre-IPO/FANG? You don’t want abstract illiquid stocks instead of stocks in MS

    Will the new role lead to accelerated growth in leadership or skill development ?

    Look at upside - MS gives SSA. Would you get something similar in new company.

    Finally, MS may match the offer on stocks. Ask yourself are you sick and tired of MS or you want a different experience at new place ?

      Blind it is - you need to inflate tc while posting

      120 is the grant price. Growth is not factored in right now.

      For tc, you're right that number is off. I was factoring in another number as well but that doesn't apply here.

      Thanks for the feedback on expected equity.
