    Is that a yearly bonus?

      This is a good offer. L6 band in seattle is 240-345k. Current folks might be making more this year and the next due to past grants and increase in the stock price. Whats your experience if i may ask?

      Interview is more focused on leadership principles rather than coding/ algorithms to my surprise

    $244k total comp first year? Probably bottom of the band. Some SDE2 with old RSU grants earn more (but are overpaid).

      Looks like you don't know how to calculate TC

      First year: 150k base, 75k signup, 5% * 240 RSUs * $1600. Where's the error?

      First year bonus will be 85k as he will get 5% stocks. So his TC should be around 255k. For L6 it’s on the higher end. As far as I know, L6 band max out at 280k.

    RSUs are decent for the current price of stock. Base for Seattle is good. Bonus on the low side.
