How is this L4 SWE offer? 6 years exp.

Base 135k, bonus 15%, rsu 320k over 4 years, 20k sign on.

Don't have a strong competing offer. Seems like an average offer?

    On the lower side. There is a thread somewhere where someone posted tc/percentile based on internal doc where people post their tc.

    L4 here. 170/350/50 same experience but coming from another FANG. Bay area. Probably could have gotten more stock.

      Thanks. Honestly, I don't deserve it. Just got lucky coming from Apple on a team with a lot of low hanging fruit. They had to match.

      My current base is also 170, but they're not matching. Good that you got that match, congratulations.

      Don't ever say you don't deserve it, that's just your imposter syndrome talking. You don't have to be greedy or entitled but you deserve every bit of it.

      Companies are not charities, they're paying you that much because they know it is a good deal for them still.

    Had got same, I refused and they came back with 150 base, 400 RSU over 4 years and 50 sign-on. Not ready to go beyond that, I don't think it is enough to make me move right now.

      Indeed, because OP is a way above average, of course, and deserves more.

    Standard T4 offer I would expect for MTV. Seems good for Seattle. Maybe 40th percentile ballpark of all T4s I would guess.

    Yeah I think this is on the lower end for T4. You may need competitive offers to boost this.
