Get offer from azure:
Level 62: 140k base 100k stock(4years) 0 signon bonus.

It is just a play for me to on-site at Microsoft. But this package makes me aware of lower lows that Microsoft can offer.

The funny part is the hiring manager mentioned that I was given 62 because background didn’t match their team.

Kidding me? lol

Anyway, just to provide dp for you guys.

I hang up their calls immediately.

    • 61s aren’t generally making 230k.

      For the ones who have same background with me and interviewed half a year ago, I know some of them get 235k at level 61. So, yes, the range is very big and 61s can make 230k

      That is impressive.

  • Aside from not getting a sign on bonus, that seems about right for a non-senior role at MS.

    Remember, at Amazon the L5 band overlaps with several MS ones including the first senior band.

      Yep. I think Microsoft tries to lowball all the candidates in hiring events:) they provided a cheap lunch which I only ate a piece of tofu.

    As a new grad, you expect 230k? What are you smoking kid?

      Not here to make you happy with my words, honey. Call me whatever the fish you like.

      Also, know that whatever MS offered you is way more than you're worth.

      I don’t think so. I was giving three system design rounds and one coding round. The last interviewer told me that my feedbacks are very strong, and he will give me a very good one. :) unless he is lying

      :-/ it is okay for new grad. lol. I told them I have offers from google and other techs. The hiring manager told me they are doing projects beneficial to human beings... while google might not... and google L4 in Bay Area is not good too.z.

    Feel like Microsoft is the only one who pays below market values. They don’t need to attract talents?

      Well we get enough burnt out Amazon folk so we don't need to worry about paying Amazon people top $$. Now if you are FB or Goog, yeah we'll give slightly better packages.

      Oh really? Do you have any examples? Just curious.

      Many of my amazon friends boomerang to Microsoft and come back, but it’s mostly before amzn grows 3-4x. Not sure if Microsoft is worth a boomerang choice now?
