For Senior SWE in Bing team. Finished all rounds well, AA interviewer was selling me MSFT big time and drowned me in Bing koolaid. Pretty optimistic.
If/when recruiters call I'm thinking of anchoring a high but reasonable number (75th percentile). What will be a good base+RSU to ask for without pricing myself out of the market? I have done that in the past with a tier 2 company and they withdrew they offer (I ask for $180k TC and their initial number was $130k).
No FAANG level competing offers. My BATNA are all Tier 2 and reach $180k TC max.
They may give you $100k-$150k RSUs and $20k sign on
