    I'd take that, but I'm making $34k and $3k bonus and have four kids.

      How does Blind make you feel?

      Fine. I have a good family, an old farmhouse with 11 acres of land, and making more money than I ever have. Life is good. $34k is better than $12k which I have lived on before.

      That’s pretty cool; you’re not running behind money like everyone else (including me) is.

    You can negotiate more stock. MSFT gives 120k stock to L59 college hires and 150k-180k stock to L60 college hires. Base and cash bonus look good. At those numbers your tc is about 145k (120k base, 12k target cash bonus, 12.5k stock). You can get close to 160k easily and I've seen L60 offers go up to 200k in rare occasions.

      That's actually worse for negotiation that a college grad. College grads get better comp than industry hires for low yoe.
      Your offer is pretty standard I think

      Hmm, why is college grad better than someone in the industry?

      Lots of reasons. I'm not the one to judge though, just saying how it is.
      For example, you've been in the industry for less than a year and you are already looking for a new job.

      Fairly sure the high stock college hire offers are mostly reserved for returning interns and/or candidates with strong competing offers--more reliably vetted, more impetus to keep them around as long as possible at the lowest price possible. Throwing an extra 60k at them up front (which still requires them to stick around for a while) is a lot cheaper than buying them out at market rates in a couple years if they're trending towards greatness.

      Plus, you're getting somebody trained entirely in your system/culture instead of somebody else's. A lot of companies do this in some way, shape, or form.

      Worse part is, there is hardly any improvement once you join. So your Tc is way lower that what op posted even when you are 2 levels higher

      That’s funny @no-sql cause the recruiter told me if you ask for more you don’t get promotion much

    Not bad, but it doesn't hurt to ask for more. A 10 minute phone call could be worth tens of thousands of dollars.
