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.
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 ?
