      Please donโ€™t confuse if you donโ€™t have the data I would not put out data that you are completely unaware of? Top end for MTS 3 is 150-155k with 75k RSU, I can have any MTS 3 VMware employee chime in

    Base is okay. Ask for 300k worth of stocks for 4 years

      OP
      Have been doing LC from few months. They asked all the known LC questions. Nothing new. Design was mostly current project based

      Is this cloud group or software dev? TC is solid

    Cookie cutter Cisco transfer offer, stock comp sucks. Negotiate with Amazon and go back to them. They will push you up to 270 easily.

    on another note, sign on is a one time thing, don't add it. Your comp works out to 235k, which is pretty normal for external senior hires

      Well if he divides it by 4, it's like stock but given at the beginning. So no harm in adding it to TC
