So, I received a verbal offer estimate for Expedia SDE II for a core team from the recruiter. The offer is not formal yet, but that's the estimates that the recruiter told me

Can anyone help me with what I can negotiate on:

Base 145-150k
Sign-on bonus: 40k / 2 years (but they can try for 50)
RSU: 25k / 4 years
Annual bonus: 12.x%
Loc: HQ
YoE: 5+

Current TC: 215K

Want to leave amazon coz of a bad manager

      TBH work life balance is entirely dependent on “team” rather than “company”. I have friends in Amazon with healthier WLB than me because they are in teams not supporting tier1 services or offshore counterparts.

      I dont really understand your question....do you mean what type of stock awards are granted? Nowadays, its RSUs

      Rephrase:
      If they offer 25k of stocks, does it mean
      a. ~60 units of RSUs a year, regardless of stock amount change
      b. $6.5k a year, how much ever stocks can be bought with this amount

      This is the way I think it works: at whatever date they price your award (maybe your start date), they award you the count of shares equal to 25K....so at $100 a share, around 250 shares, and then one fourth of those vest each year if 4 year vesting. I'm sure it's not your option B. I guess its possibly option A but I dont think so. I know annual performance awards are done the way I stated it.

      Sorry about that, if you won’t like Expedia try Salesforce again in a year.

      No way. Sde II range doesn't go that high. But should be some room in both sign on and rsus
