MSFT folks, what is the vesting period of the RSU refreshers you get? Say one gets a 30k refresher as part of your yearly review, would be vested within the next one year or 3 to 4 years.

    Who cares. The RSU grants are so tiny it’s not even worth adding up

    Thanks. And if one is the best performar how much RSU can one expect, data for L62, L63 and L64 helps.

      This is the max, which is 200% of target. L62 target is 11k.

      Jesus, such low targets, are SSAs expected to keep top performers?

    So 48k vesting in 5 years means roughly 10k per year ? Is it 10k stocks ? I.e 145*10k per year in rsu ? that seems a lot so either I am wrong or missing out on the party

      10k is the dollar value not the number of stocks.

      Sometimes I would like to give benfit of the doubt. But, $145*10000 per year, really? This is one of those situations where you should use common sense.

    So, what happens to Microsoft employees after 4 years? Do their TC go down?

      If you are good you will keep getting refreshers every year, each refresher. Overlaps the previous ones and the total payout you get is a summation of all of them

    I am going to join Microsoft. I have been rewarded 50K RSUs per year at L63. Considering I get 34K refreshers vest over 5 years and I don’t get promoted, I will only get 28K RSUs 5th year, right? That’s bad

      The cliff exists in every company. Jump at that time if you want. Also, 5 year L63 without promotion is hard... 63 is a relative low level. It's easy to achieve L65 in MS nowadays.

      Is L65 manager level?
      Nov 10
    • Microsoft MYdq01
      Manager can be L63+
