  • 167k base in Austin seems pretty good (banking additional bonus and stock). 167 TC in Austin probably closer meh.

      How much bonus and stock should I ask for ?

    • Homeaway ppMg64
      Sign-on bonus can be around 35K. Initial stock, ask for 100K. They may settle between 50K - 75K

      In my experience they aren't as generous with stock options anymore (recruiter said Expedia clamping down)

      You can push though. If you have a competing offer, they will sweeten the pot

    Is that your salary at HomeAway or are you planning to move to HomeAway?

    Pay would be about the same unless you can get a Principal role there.

    Career wise, it’s a great place to learn the whole test and learn concept. It is very data driven with a keen product focus.

    WLB is awesome, you would hardly ever work more than 40 hours. And it’s pretty easy going with competent folks

    I love working here

      So you mean for principal role they pay 167. How’s level structured there?

    • Homeaway ppMg64
      No, Staff will pay around what you are making. Principal would be around 180 mark + 20% bonus + stocks

      145 k base/ 10% bonus/ 30 k stock
      Do u think I can push something for staff role?
      20 % bonus kicks only for principal?
      Mar 17
    • Homeaway ppMg64
      Yes. Ask for atleast 165K. Bonus will be at 15% and do ask for initial stick grant of atleast 100K. Yearly grant would be about 35K
