1.5 years xp, PhD in sciences. 145k base / 15% annual bonus / 200k stocks vesting over 4 years / 25k signing, 1% increase over current TC with no competing offers. Recruiter tells me this offer required escalation to the director of the org, and that it's around the upper middle of the L4 range. Thoughts?
It's definitely in the upper region of L4 for Data Scientists. Please keep in mind that here almost all comp discussions are based for SDEs.
