Masters New grad offer for Microsoft Redmond, WA
I am posting for a friend. He cleared Microsoft interviews about 3 weeks back for one of the Azure teams. Location is Redmond, WA. He will join in 2019 as a new grad. Following are the numbers given to him:
Stock: $115k over 3.5 yrs
Previous to grad school, he has a rich work experience of 2 yrs at a startup in India.
Is he being low-balled? How much is the scope for negotiation, esp base?
Can he join at level 61 as a new grad with experience and details as mentioned in the initial post?
