Microsoft L61 offer

Initial L61 offer in Redmond - azure
135k base, 30k signon n 60k stock.
I have 2 yoe back home + masters from Texas + 4 yoe in visa Austin.
The interview went really well and I was hoping for l62 but they just offered 61. I currently make 125 @visa Austin n I believe that roughly translates to 135-140 in Redmond area . So I m not getting any hike and I also assume 135 base is almost top end of l61?
One pending offer from Amazon Austin- waiting to hear the numbers .
What should I negotiate for ?

    For reference I was offered 145k base for Lvl 60. Sign on was 25k, stock was 30k. I think you can get more

      Interesting, I didn’t know that was possible. Maybe the cap has increased recently. When did the offer come through?

      I turned it down about two weeks ago, so pretty recent. The base only went that high because my other 2 offers had the same base

      They might as well give you 62 at that point... 145k base is comp ratio of about 1 for 63

    Base is pretty decent for 61. Might be able to get up to 140. Could also get more in stock if you have competing offers (maybe 120k)

      Yes base is almost hitting the max for l61? Do you think 75k signon possible ?

      I don’t know what the max base for 61 is, but I’ve definitely seen people with 140 before. I’m not sure what the policy for sign-on is

      OP
      I did see somewhere that 125 in Austin was like 170 in Redmond but having asked people who moved for Seattle to Austin or the other way the delta was not more than 10-15%

    Wait for amazon offer. Then negotiate. They will be willing to negotiate to 62

    My offer was 135/75 and 40 sign on for 61. With competing offers it can go higher.
