    EDIT: My response below was for Software Engineer role. I do not have much data on Support Engineering roles.

    Base - low. Standard is 150-165.
    Sign in bonus - low. 20-50K is typical.
    On hire stock - sucks for experienced hires but 25K for 63 is too low. Ask for 50-70K min. 150-200K is doable if you have competitive offers from tier 1 companies.

    This seems really low for L63... Especially with no sign on bonus. Don't new grads get 100k of stock also?

    Seems low, my friend started at MS as a 62 at $140k, PM 2, with, 30k signing bonus, 60k stock and that was 3 years ago. (But she was a vendor with the group for 2 years before the fte offer)

    Support Engineer is not Software Engineer so the salary won’t be the same. I think someone mentioned they received $200k stock for level 63 Software Engineer.

    Wow. Microsoft Senior pays same as FB new grad! No wonder Microsoft principal is the new Senior

      New grads get 59 or 60. 61 in best case. 63 is Senior SE.
