Living in SF on low cash comp, unable to liquidate their shares because IPO keeps getting delayed. They are angry and demoralized.

      200k base, not TC 😅😅 @WLB @microsoft

      My base is 225k . Plus we get 25% cash bonus . So that makes it go to 280+. I am not sure whether op was high or something when they posted but I am pretty sure 280k is more than survival mode . OP may have failed the interview and trying to now lash out in a different way .

      Just promoted to L6 from L5. At L5 base was 203k. Bonus was 20 pct. if someone get hired as L6 then they are looking for base around 240k

      wtf, 280k sounds the low end of your level. guess you must be granted another 300k paper money a year. I am feeling even worse than op now because of you guys.

    Feel bad? I'm jealous. High cash. 9-5 avocado toast culture.

      Avocado toast confirmed, also pickled garlic is a good topping

      At Uber the avocado runs out by 930. No pickled garlic.

      Haha. Not that bad. Everyone here loves the mission which keeps us around at least thru IPO despite lots of crappy management and lack of lavish perks 🙂

      The grass is always greener. I’ve heard Uber is better for engineering development.

      Well, they get $100 monthly wellness bucks, matching charitable donations, 15 days PTO to start, quickly (3 years?) ramps to 25 I think, espp with 6 month look back, pretty good 401k match, Indy office had free massages, gym onsite. Unlimited PTO at a pretty low level.

    I have 7 figures of paper money waiting for the Mars colony. We used to have regular liquidity events where I could peel off about 100k every year but I'm not super confident those will keep happening ...just one more tweet away from fucking everything up .

      7 figures of paper money? Whoa. Tell me more. I thought the offers were standard weak ass aerospace TC + some extra change.

      They try to compete with tech TC for those with the same skills but a lot of TC is just paper. I've accumulated a bit and value has gone up. If I left today I'd either be super rich in 20 years or it will be worth nothing. I have no idea..lol

      I hear ya. Love the work you guys do. Hopefully the paper will be worth something.

      Instead of Mars, start mining near earth asteroids. That’s where the real cheddar is.

    I believe AirBnB has liquidity events, so employees can sell their equity before the IPO. Maybe someone from AirBnB can confirm?

      @temp that's not quite what I'm referring to. Some private companies allow employees to sell their private equity back during specific windows (usually annually) at the current market rate based on valuation. This is known as a liquidity event and I heard that AirBnB does them.

      There have been windows for those with options, but not for rsus. It's Airbnb 😋

      What does Airbnb give these days? RSUs or options?
      Mar 23
    • Airbnb AirEvryWhr
      Rsu only these days but we can take 25% refresher as cash. So if you want only cash - it’s base + bonus + 25 % rsu refresher

    They have beer, wine and kombucha on tap and their office is like a hotel. I don’t think they’re hurting.

  • Yet Airbnb keeps being top 3 in all recent “what are the best companies to work for” polls. Must be all those HRs messing up with votes.
