Offer is 118 base, 220 stock, 75 bonus (this is standard for GE rating). So year 1 TC is something like 118 + 220/4 + 75 + 0.1 * 118 = 259.8. I know that top of band Google new grad gets about 300 year 1 TC so I should be able to squeeze this offer up about 40k. Since stock is already top of band for new grad E3 (from what I know), would I just ask for 115 bonus? What are the highest negotiated returning intern sign-on bonuses?

    Don’t you divide cash bonus by 4?

      That makes no sense unless it vests over 4 years. Why divide by 4 and not 10 or 100?

      Because you divide you stocks over 4 so your TC is consistent over 4 years.

      His first-year TC includes 1/4 of stocks and the entirety of his sign on. It’s that simple.

      His average 4-year TC is another story, and would involve dividing the sign on by 4, but that involves speculations about his future refreshers. It’s also not a useful metric.

      lol ok, it is the metric used on Blind and it makes no sense to to just compare first year TC. Comparing TC for the first 4 year is standard, what happens on the 5th year and beyond is the speculative part. What’s the point of comparing a super high first year TC if your second year drops like a rock.

      Redefines is the highest if you're already hired and you're doing PSC. For returning interns GE is the highest. And yes, this is currently the highest offer you can get without negotiation

    Usually only the sign on bonus is negotiable for fresh grads.

    Usually the max sign on is 100. Also note that Google tends to pay L3 ~15k more than at FB (they even out at L4+): levels.fyi
