    Sounds great! Tc340 for L4. This is the high end of L4

      Is sign on bonus at Facebook cash or stocks? And is there a vesting period? Or all at the end of or beginning of first year?

      Re: Omni, it depends. Often the sign on is cash, deposited as separate paycheck in the first 30 days of employment.

      Nice! Is 100K common for E4? How much do they pay for E5?

      It's used when they can't offer more salary or RSUs because the offer is already top of the band, but you have a strong competing offer.

      100k is max.

    After negotiation, they boosted the base to 168k and RSU to 400k.

    I had 160/300/100 with 4 yeo. Granted RSUs were valued closer to 200 when the offer was extended. You won't be able to negotiate salary as it's already top of band, you might be able to push RSU up to 350.

    Did you negotiate? Is it the TC after matching other offers?
