    Offer is very good. But even for moving from Microsoft they do give out sign on. Recruiter is fooling you.

      Actually you can’t get sign on- it’s a policy.

      They may give sign on but only if you have strong competing offer and they need to close the gap. They offered me 15K but only as a final step.

      Linked senior is one level above new grad. You could get principle with this yoe if you interviewed well.

      Let me tell you something about moving to NY.

      Let's say you rent an apartment for $5k rent. First last security deposit and broker fee minimum $20k up front and that's just to move in to your apartment.
