Austin offer

Considering an L2 offer from Indeed, I’m feeling lowballed. Offer base is the same as my current base and my current perf bonus is flat 20k, houses here are 30% cheaper than Austin.

The offer:
Base - $120k
Anniversary bonus - 13%
Perf Bonus - 13%
Sign on - $15k
Offer TC - $151.2k
Relo benefits offered but I dont consider relevant

Current TC - $140k
YoE - 7
LC - 30

Am I crazy thinking there’s no upside? I like the company culture but I wasn’t expecting this, maybe I am a crummy interviewee :/

    I've seen some things.
    Having lived in Austin, if you're coming from any other TX city, do not move unless you're getting at least a 20% pay bump. Otherwise you won't be able to maintain your current QoL.

    Nope. That's low. Ask for 20% over current, and be prepared to walk away.

    Don’t change job for such a low increase in TC. You will get frustrated after sometime.

    I received an L2 offer from them for around ~200k TC. I think that's close to where it tops out.

    Same thing happened with me at F5 Networks. Rejected it. It's a red alert. Think what will happen in there internal hikes if they are low balling now itself.
