Microsoft Icant

Has anybody gone FROM Microsoft to Github recently? How was that transition handled?

How is comp handled? Do I keep my old atock awards and receive new awards?

Anybody have a ballpark TC for a Dir. of Eng at Github?

    You interview as a new-hire and your stocks transfer over.

      Do you receive a new comp package as well?

      Not sure about base, but GitHub doesn't use the same levels or equity process/targets at MSFT, so those would be different on an ongoing basis.

      Is it better than Microsoft? (I hope so, Microsoft sucks)

      This is the first cycle for the new process, so none of us know the targets yet.

    I believe it’d be treated just like LinkedIn

      I’m not familiar, do you know what that process is like? Are you terminated as a Microsoft employee?

      Yes it’s like it’s a completely different company
