Compensation for new grad (undergrad and masters)?

Feb 17

Can people share their compensations for new grad positions? I'm interested in both undergrad and masters graduates, and would love to hear base salary, signing bonus, and RSUs.

      Snap only ever offered new grads anywhere close to that amount before it went public. Google doesn't match offers from private companies dollar for dollar.

      They do if you're a good enough negotiator and the company is about to IPO.

      You seem like an obvious troll now, my bad for engaging so far.

      Honestly, I don't blame you for not believing me because it's hard to believe myself. I consider this particular friend a trustworthy source, but take it for what you will

      I also had offers from Airbnb, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, etc. This was about 6 months ago. I also haven't joined yet (starting after graduation).

      Apple was actually one of the highest. I think it's bc I got up leveled though. Also, luck played a huge part in all this imo.

      I got offers from a couple of teams. The one I moved forward with gave me ~90% what Google gave me.

      Which startup has such a high base?
      Feb 17
    • Google / Eng
      Not naming to protect my own anonymity, but you can PM me. For context, most of their offers are around $120k base, but I had a high base + target bonus % competing offer so they tried to match with base.

    • Target bonus for a startup??
      Feb 17
    • Google / Eng
      Only some of them. I had an offer with a startup that offered 40%, which is downright ludicrous.

      Wow, Amazon has really upped their new grad offers. 2 years ago a return intern in Seattle got 100-105k base, 50k rsu and 35k/25k sign on.

      For what it’s worth, I had friends in digital goods and retail, and both received offers in the ballpark you stated.
      I was in AWS. Perhaps they’re hiring at a greater rate and want to retain interns, idk. Location is Seattle.

      Also, I went to a no name state school, and had a total of three internships (one of which was at G)

      In Seattle? How’d you get such a high base?
      Feb 17
    • Facebook tRFH81
      Interesting. The numbers I stated were from master's AWS return interns 2 years ago.

      Curious, what made you go to Amazon instead of G?

      The return offer had expired for G (did an internship at Amazon after G’s and still had a semester of school). I’d have to re-interview. Additionally, I was promised a team in AWS, which is an organization I’ve been super happy at.

      I’m still not 100% I made the right decision. I’m sure I could have gotten greater comp at G (or even Microsoft or Facebook), but I guess I took the “safe” option.

      All that matters is how happy you are at the job.

      The return offer is only this good if you get SEE or higher performance reviews right? Congrats!

    Amazon - 106+35.5 signing first year + 30.5 signing second, 65k RSUs. Pretty lowball but still the most cash first year. Rip my finances.

    Fintech 1 - $130k, $20k signing
    Fintech 2 - $130k, $10k signing, $100k options
    Fintech 3 - $131.5k, $13.5k target bonus
