Cruise offer related questions
Appeared for an onsite on Tuesday and received verbal offer from recruiter on Wednesday. I didn't do well in a system design round so got down leveled to software engineer (applied for senior software engineer role). I'm a staff software engineer at NI. I have following questions :
1) What is the typical experience in years for a software engineer in cruise and a senior software engineer ? I have 5 years of experience so is it okay if I try to negotiate for a senior software engineer role ?
2) I was told that the compensation range for software engineer is around 150 - 200k (cash compensation), additionally RSU + relocation bonus. Any advice on compensation range (base + bonus + RSU) that I should target for ?
3) Since I will be joining Embedded systems group. So any feedback about the team, their culture, work life balance etc ?
TC : 95K in Austin.
YOE : 5 years ( 3 in US)
Yet to get the final offer from Cruise
