I just promote from L4 to L5 with base salary increased for less than 20% and without additional RSU, does that make sense?

    Yeah. Your existing TC might be too high if you came in as L4 when the stock price was low. Technically there's a cap at 10% base raise that your mgr can override. But not a whole lot of flexibility

    Same here, got promoted last quarter... no additional RSU's and just 15% base bump

    My manager is like I can bump your base salary to 10% max. No RSUs. He said that I am already in the L5 payband.

    It depends on your existing base, total compensation. In case you believe the nos are screwed it is mostly because you were already in the existing payband of L5. I have seen people getting 50% hike and 10% in the same cycle, it was basically to normalize the compensation.

    Nope. Target for 30% base bump + twice stock for next 4 years compared to what you got at L4.
