    9 YOE in US? I think you should target for E5. How did your system design round go?

    Recruiter is BSing you. Ask for Sign on 40 to 50. Ask for rsu increase to 350 (she'll probably come back with 290 or something

    Also good don't be sad about levels. you're experienced. You probably will over perform and quickly get promoted within 2-3 cycles max. Coming is as e5 can be hard . Coming in as e4 is pretty nice

    Solid offer, idk why people are saying it's bad. If you were expecting E5 then yeah it's bad, but in that case your interview didn't go as well as you thought

      It's a standard E4 offer, he obviously didn't pass the E5 bar

      *If I did not do well* , then the decision should be a no-hire. Recruiting a candidate costs a lot for a company ( ~ $ 30K ). For spending that kind of money , the company should be sure of the merits of the candidate.
