just got an offer from Uber for L5a
Base/rsu
195k/700k
With 20k sign on bonus. Have 6 yoe
I am still waiting on Airbnb and stripe. Should I just take this or wait on others?

Edit: I will wait after people are suggesting me to but I just wanted to know if this was good for a L5a. :-)

Edit 2: thank you for all the responses and suggestions. If my Uber recruiter were to read this post her eyes would bleed.
I got an offer from Airbnb and reject from stripe.
205/800 with 35k sign on.

I am going to take up Airbnb.

      I heard they are done with the layoffs though.

      From whom did u hear?
      Any company while laying off people will say we r done. If not, other employees would leave too.

      In my opinion, uber is going to layoff more people in next 6 months

    My spouse had exactly the same offer for 5a at Uber 6 month ago.
    Unfortunately, he got laid off.
    Even is you think that Uber won't do any more layoffs, think about attitude of your teammates. I doubt it's a fun place to work now.

    It's not worth it! The leadership and culture are both toxic. Attrition rate is very high. They hand out high offers because avg tenure is like 2yrs or less.

    800 over 4 years? That’s amazing. Can you talk more about what it takes to ace such a good offer? How was the interview?

    • WeWork uTheXop
      I just remembered that Abnb is not public. Doesn’t this make this 800 highly speculative as opposed to Uber that’s already doing pretty bad (stock wise) and so is unlikely to fluctuate in a negative direction wildly?

      OP
      I made sure I could solve every problem on my own even if it took me more time. I had to get hints for some. I didn't solve any multiple times. Essentially after about a 100 I was able to solve most of them on my own within 30 min.

      That's amazing. Did you solve 270 problems in 3 months ?

      how many hours a day did it take you to do those 270 LC + system design over those 3 months approx?

      Also how many LC hards did you get in all your interviews

    • Yelp lc_hard
      OP
      I used to do 3 hours on weekdays and approximately 10 on weekends. I honestly felt all the coding questions were easy but the system design was hard. Yes I solved 270 in 3 months. As I said I didn't do a lot of hard.

    Reduce your RSU and ask for more signing bonus so if you get laid off you don’t have to pay it back

    Everyone here is afraid of taking risks. I'd say still wait for the other two so that you can negotiate. I'm actually joining uber freight and I'm more excited about the problem space than the potential risk

      Even with the layoffs, I'm in talks with the Uber Freight org. I'm incredibly interested in this space and what they are setting out to do. But it is still a large risk. Seems as though there is a common theme I've been seeing here on Blind... management appears to be chaotic.

      If you want to take arisk but 100k Uber stock. Wtf would you want to go work there
      Oct 18
    • Microsoft Ovenmitts
      Why? Challenging problems, smart engineers, room to grow and learn. I'm tired of idling around at msft. I want to actually be interested in my work. Plus I kind of believe freight has a lot of potential
      Oct 18
    • Microsoft Ovenmitts
      I talked with several friends working at Uber, it just seems everything on blind is exaggerated. People at freight at least think the leaders are great. And team morals still seems decent at least with the friends i talked to. Anyways i could be wrong, ill find out in a couple months.

      You should totally join! They are always looking for new meat.

    Those numbers don't make sense if you get laid off within a year..

    Avoid the drama. Uber lies to its employees. They hire great engineers but the management is horrible here.

      Really wish the leadership and middle management was not such a shitshow.

    You’ll never get that 700k in RSU, either due to stock deval or being laid off halfway. Not sure what drives you to even consider Uber.

    You are just making us jealous. At the current stock price you are way ahead of the rest of us. Join in November to max out the advantage. Then fly the 🚀 all the way to 120B baby 🤣.

    My 5b offer wasn't much higher, low 400s I believe. But like others have said: have you not seen what's going on with Uber lately?

    Had similar offers recently and took Uber’s. I want to optimize for learning atm though abb offer is slightly higher

  • Apple Azrael3
    Another way to look at it: Try getting any company to beat the Uber offer. Chances are, they’ll not because they realize the same thing as the other folks from Uber cautioning you.
