2 yoe, currently SWE1 at MSFT. How does this offer look ?

TC~30 LPA. 22 (base) + 5.5(annual stock vest) + bonus.

Base is around 33% higher than current base, but TC is only around 12-14% more than current TC at MSFT (taking MSFT stock appreciation into consideration).

Thoughts ? Is this a good offer ?

Company is not one of FAANG, Uber, LinkedIn.

    If you are leaving MSFt for 12-14% hike, the company had better offer other things too like better work and growth opportunities. Otherwise, not worth it as 12-14% on your base isn't worth leaving MSFt for in itself.

      Exactly my thoughts. MSFT India has a huge variety of teams to choose from when I get bored, new company probably doesn't have that wide fields of work.

      True, but the total increase over current TC is not very much

      Not sure if competing offers help in India. If they, then you could try to increase

      Competing offers do matter, but haven't even started the process with any other company atm.

    If reason to switch is just hike, then wait for your promotion here, will get better deal

    Leaving msft for 10% hike is not a good decision in my opinion

    At 2 yoe, it doesn't make sense to move around companies for a slight increase in TC. Especially if you're moving from a company like Microsoft to a company that is not in the same league.

    What level are you currently on ?
    You'll easily hit 30 lpa TC if you become 61.

      I agree. I'm leaning towards staying on. Will try to get them to improve the offer, but doubt the improvement will be worth leaving.
      Currently L60.

    That’s pretty low increase to move. Try to move to USA branch at Microsoft for a significant increase

      MSFT doesn't allow international transfer below L62. I'm couple of levels below that atm.

      How many years will it take to get to L62? Do you think the other company can send you here faster than Msft?

      Honestly, no idea. Atleast 2-3 years I guess.

  • Which company is paying 22 base for 2yoe in India. Is this the norm there now ?
    Thinking to move back if that’s true. Lul

      Probably not the norm, but competition for talent is heating up in India as well. Check out the crazy numbers in the Big India TC thread.

    This is definitely the norm. Has been the case for the past 3 years I think. The likes of Flipkart and Ola have driven up salaries that everyone around is starting to match.
