Is 310k decent or low for Bay Area? Also, what's typical Sign On like?

      350k can be easily expected. But this is based on your competing offer

      @yUYw72. Did you include sign on in the 415K. Your base and bonus come to 218.5. RSUs have to be close to 200 K per year for comp to hit 415K.

    Honestly, 6 yoe without further context this is pretty good

    It’s more like $335k in first year including bonus, not bad.

      Everything above and 15% annual bonus:
      175k + 35k + 100k + 0.15*175k = $336.25k

      The 35 k is the bonus, genius. You double counted.

      I assume $35k is sign-on bonus, which is different than perf bonus (min 15% of base pay for L3-L5). I would be very surprised if OP didn’t get signon bonus.

      OP counted 310, so I assume OP knows what kind of bonus the 35k is. 175+35+100=310.

      Yes, that’s possible, something only OP can confirm.

      My recent Google offer had 20% sign on and 15% perf bonus on top of base and stocks, this is what I have seen in most cases.

    This is right for your experience. T5 comp is wide! They don’t like to hire t6+ from outside, so T5 comp needs to cover 6 yrs exp to 20yrs exp.

    It’s the standard T5 package. Fair for 6 yoe without much further context.
