    Solid experience doesn't count. What we value is the ability to avoid work and blame others when things don't go your way.

    If the experience is in a different country they don't consider as far as I know.. I had 2.5 years exp before my masters in India, but as a sd2 and new grad they said the salary cannot be negotiated. My salary when I joined was 117k /5% bonus/ no equity

      All you need is a competing offer and they will count your experience in a different country as "international assignment".

      Hi, any idea of max base salary including and excluding joining bonus

    You will get anywhere close to ~120 to ~125K, if you just graduated from University and are being recruited from University recruitment, chances are you won't be getting any joining bonus or equity
