Is Uber compensation truly non negotiable?

I received an offer from Uber which expires tomorrow in a non-tech role. It's on the lower side, and I was told 2-3 times already that all parts of the compensation (which includes no sign-on bonus) are non-negotiable due to their equity pay policy. My question is, is this true? Today I received on offer from another company which is offering me a higher base and a sign on bonus. Can I use this to try and negotiate with uber again, knowing my offer expires tomorrow and they've told me already that it's non negotiable?

    Say fine and walk away. I did thrice till now. Haven't regretted even once.

    They did the same thing to me. Eventually I just took another/better offer. They did not even respond to my final email. The worst interviewing/offer experience I had. Hope this does not reflect the culture inside the company.
    Why the fuck did you give me an offer, if you are gonna play “hard to get”?!

    How do you feel about the equity offered? Keep that in consideration

    The equal pay policy is legit unfortunately. Try again in 6 months and shoot for a higher level. Good luck.

    I brought competing offer which was slightly higher and they still didn’t increase or match it

    The deadline is real, but it’s easy enough for the recruiting team to generate the paperwork again. I’d keep negotiating and would definitely bring your competing offer to the table.

    For non-tech and/or non-exec, sign on bonus is not going to happen. Other components you have flex.

    If they want you they’ll negotiate. Can be slow because it usually takes VP approval for significant change.
