      Oh look here, another big mouther whoโ€™s probably too scared to put money where his mouth is. If you knew so much about the market youโ€™d be a retired millionaire, not working at IBM and spewing shit on blind

      @IBM why don't you short snap with all your money then? You will become very rich by your assumptions.

      Not sure if Snap vs G is a total no-brainer, but IBM vs G surely is lol

      If you got this snap offer one year ago, itโ€™s 3M now and snap has monthly vesting schedule so means ur comp could be 1M per year. To me itโ€™s just a safe-stable vs risky-reward choice.

    I would choose G6 over S5 even if G doesn't match. More cash less risk vs 6 and above are well respected and can work on actual interesting stuff. Also at this level sooner or later you are gonna have kids then WLB and stability are both much better at G. If you are able to pull off G6 tho you might want to try shooting for S6 too, where the TC differences might worth it

    • Then why do you even care about TC? Why even asking?

      TC shows how much the company values your work. I don't accept lowball offers out of principle

      In any case you sound like a good fit, hope to work with you soon

    They can match and beat if they want you bad enough. Have to play the game of negotiation.

    I got google L5 offer to match snap offer(L4, 900K RSU = 750K RSU+ 150k special Sign on RSU). but it needed to go through lots of approval. So it depends how strong your interview feedback is and how much the team wants you. (However, refresher at snap will be like twice better than google.)

      What are the refreshers like?

      1/4 of the 1.25 per year at L5.

      The refreshers vest over 4 years too?
      Oct 26
    • Snapchat snapbryo
      Yes, starting monthly, over 4 years. But it's an extra 1/8 of your original Grant you get every 6 months. So at the end of 4 years you'll have vested considerably more than 1.25M. Closer to 1.9M if you do the math.

    • Catch: it would depend on company performance. I think we've had tough years and not all get refresh.

    Seen smaller L6 offers at G but they can definitely match that; it wouldn't be an outlier grant for 6.
