    Is the sign on bonus split equally in yr 1 and 2 ?

      Usually. The stick is 5% first year, 15% second year, so to adjust for that you get a but more sign on first year and a bit less second year. I think they try to get equal TC.

      That's enough RSUs to give a 210k TC.

    Offer seems too low for Google. Amazon pays more than that for a newly hired sde2
