Microsoft vTcX68
Nov 13 28 Comments

Base: 16 lakhs INR
Sign-on stocks: 60k USD (over 4 years)

Is it a good offer? Shall I join Google? Is it better to negotiate to increase my base or my joining bonus?

Current compensation (Microsoft IDC, level 60)
Base: 16.18 lakhs INR
Sign on stocks: 30k USD (over 4 years)
Sign on bonus: 2 lakhs INR (over 2 years)
I'm expecting a promotion (SDE-2) in next 6 months.

    He is getting about Rs 30 lakhs in total comp for 1.5 years of experience, how is this low?? Are you guys trolling or is it the norm lately in India to get 40 lakhs -50 lakhs for literally a new grad

      @Lyft OP is nearly SDE2. Average SDE2 comp is above 40L these days ( Yoe doesn't matter much ). I know people with 40L+ cash offers with 1YOE as well

      Yoe doesn’t matter much?? , so I’m assuming solving leetcode matters. How do you decide if an engineer is principal level or junior level, give the candidate 3 hard leetcode if solved principle otherwise junior, joke this has become.

      Anyways, it works for you guys, make good use of it when it lasts.

      Also, no wonder real estate in India is increasing, thanks to these comp numbers, haven’t heard of these before

      @Lyft my point was YOE doesn't matter much for the same title . SDE2 with 2YOE and 6YOE might as well be getting the same pay . LC matters the most + system design. It's pretty similar to the US i would say . The comp numbers in US are way more absurd .

    You deserve much better. Freshers are paid 30 base along with bonus upto 50% of their base salary at TRC.

      I didn't get what TRC is. Just realised, it is Tower Research Capital.

      Can you please tell me how is TC progression in TRC? I know that they pay highest in India for freshers.

    This is the average L3 offer you get without any counter offers. Try to get an offer somewhere and Google would match it.

      @Smebdy Amazon SDE2 can easily beat this offer .FYI some of my friends got above 45L with 2 Yoe ( they had competing offers though )

      Getting SDE 2 is not easy with anything less that 3 YOE. We don't decide SDE 1 vs SDE 2 based on your TC or your competing offers.

      No, I don't have sign-on bonus.

      @Smebdy there are plenty of people with less than 3YOE SDE2 in Amazon. It's not easy but I know several people who have done it so it is very well possible and doable .

    • Amazon / Eng Somebdy
      People with 1 YOE can also get in as SDE 2. I am just talking from a general perspective
      Nov 13
  • Tower Research Capital uWjy35
    @Lyft, people right out of college are getting more than this. YOE don't matter much, but this is only true for the right talent. So, for others, you have the MS route who go to any random college in US, get a MS degree, solve LC, and then get into these companies.

    PS: Not saying all those who go for MS, belong to this job seeking category because they couldn't get anything in India, but most do.

    Lol, what happened to Google? Why numbers are so low? Even tom, dick and harry can pay more than this. OP, did you screw up your interview?

      No, I didn't screw up. Atleast that is what I'm aware of, and recruiter told me same.
