Their rsu vesting is weird 10..20..30..40% over four years ... And they don't give huge joining bonuses to make up for that... They should still be able to beat Amzn comp for the first year and come out huge for the 3rd and 4th year if u stay
If all comp years are the same when you start, then after 2 years, your 3 and 4 years would be a lot more due to stock appreciation. However, as the far as the board is concerned they were issued at low valuation (for accounting purposes). This is a retention incentive.
