Help me evaluate this PayPal offer

I have an offer from PayPal. It's for software Engineer 2, T23.

130 base
10% bonus
$25,000 equity 3 year vest
$10,000 sign on bonus.

Seems pretty low to me especially disappointed with equity numbers. Would like some opinions. It's lower than even the lowest number on Paysa for new grads.

    Sounds like a regular PayPal offer to me.
    Asking for 50k might help considering how stock price has gone up by 68% in a year

      But 25k is extremely low.

    This is a good offer with 2.5 years experience which is not lot. If you are telling me you can crack Google / FB / Uber / Amazon interviews, then I would say you fit the mold for higher salary (cracking the interview for these companies in no way means you can write scalable code with good design).

    That's definitely very low. Even Yahoo pays more than that

      If you can get additional offers then try negotiating for SE3 and some more stock/base. Otherwise this is a normal Masters RCG offer.

      So they give the same equity to new grads as they do people with 2.5 years experience?
      Sep 22, 2017
    • PayPal Polynomial
      It depends. 2.5 years experience isn't a lot. You can ask for SE3. Try negotiating. Which org ? PM me.

    Yes is there any way I can negotiate on my base package without any other offer?

      Just ask for 50k stock. They will probably come back with some number. There's always room for negotiation. It worked for me.

    This is correct for T23. The stocks you could ask for 30K and you should also get relocation allowance. That should be fine.

    Base looks pretty high

    PayPal may be paying a little lower than other peers, yet not too bad. RCG (M.S. degree) at this level would actually be even lower on base, i.e. around 115K. Numbers/$$$ are just one factor of the offer though, you might also want to see if the team you're joining or the project you'll be working on is a good fit or not.

    Offer will be calculated based on negotiation, current compensation, interview performance and the past company and school grades. For 2.5 years Experience package looks good.

    This is a new grad salary minus relocation bonus. How many years experience you have ?

    Low don’t take it, unless the current compensation is even lower than that
