- So everyone in Amazon gripes about the total compensation target (TCT) model where it’s possible for you to be rated the equivalent of exceeds and see no difference in pay compared to meets. And that’s because the TCT model takes into account your current grants when determining how many grants you get for the future. When an exceed’s TCT is higher than a meets performer, they both can end up getting 0 stocks for a year because for that year, both their existing grants exceed the TCTs.
I’m being told other companies don’t have this bullshit, while some people say they do have a similar bullshit. Facebook doesn’t seem to have the bullshit, all future stock grants moving forward is only dependent on performance and level, not previous grants which makes it memoryless. However, I’ve heard how Google is the holy grail here in Blind and that they give good refreshers yet I’ve also been told it’s possible for people to get zero even beyond their first year. What is the formula like usually outside of Amazon? Is Amazon the only company with memoried stock grants?7d0
