      L64 average is 290k TC. So this is max L3 offer which iโ€™m not sure is the correct level for 13yoe.

      No guaranteed refreshers. RSU refreshers get passed out yearly to high performers. The higher your level, the better chance you'll have of getting them though.

  • Being down leveled at msft is actually a good thing - you get a chance to get your feet under you and given your yoe you should crush it at l63. Comp looks great relative to salesforce offer. Col is lower in Redmond than Bay Area.

    With 13 yoe, youโ€™re down leveled. But itโ€™s hard to negotiate level, so you either take it or leave it.

    About the numbers, itโ€™s a great offer for L63. One point to note, bonus 30% is the max, which youโ€™re not going to get that easily. 15% is the target, which is what you should consider while evaluating offers

      Yes down leveled . Yea I m counting 15%

    MSFT is a great offer. Never heard of that base for 63!! You will need a level bump to go farther than this
