    Base looks fine, everything else is low balled

    New grad returning intern stock is like 120/3.5 now, never mind L61

      Curious why do they do it? Would they be fine if you ask for 150k stocks for l60-61?

      I've no idea why they're so competitive for new grad but not experienced

    Don’t add sign on in TC, and even if you do, divide by number of years you expect to stay there

    Is the projected TC applicable if you stay at your current role?

    It's good. Stocks generally suck for industry hires so don't pay attention to the new grads get blah comments

    Without any other offers there is always very little room to negotiate.

    Could try "asking" for more RSUs though.
