    Base: 160k
    First year sign on: 65k
    Second year sign on: 50k
    RSU: 100(over 4 yrs)
    Location: Seattle

    Y1: 160 + 65 + (5*1800*1.15) = 235k
    Y2: 160 + 50 + (15*1800*1.15*1.15) = 245k
    Y3: 160 + (40*1800*1.15*1.15*1.15) = 269k
    Y4: 160 + (40*1800*1.15*1.15*1.15*1.15) = 285k

    Looks a little low on the starting cash the first two years. Year three is normally what I look at, which is like 270k.

    I would say that for an L6 TPM that’s a pretty good offer. I don’t know the exact bands, only that SDEs make
    much more and that’s 20k into the L6 SDE range. The first couple of years definitely looks slim, though.

      Amazon believes their stock go up 15% every year.

      I also made up the 1800 planning price, who knows what they used to generate the offer (unless the letter says it in fine print).

    How's is total comp calculated? The way I am seeing is 160 + 65=225k for first year. 210k for the second. Doesn't seem great. Am I missing something?
