I am joining Microsoft at L62, I was wondering what is the stock refresher on an average performance and also when you have exceeded expectations? Would be helpful to figure out what TC I am looking at in future.

TC - 195-200ish. YOE - 2.7 Location - Redmond

    Stock target (average perf) for 62 is $11k (Max is $22k). Stock vests quarterly for five years. Target (average perf) bonus is 10% (Max is 20%) for 62.

      Yeah, it’s nothing to write home about. Of course, you will get 3% increase to base every year and if you perform then you’ll get promo in 2-3 years and everything goes up. Plus, five years of rewards layered gives you $50k/year on low end. That said, I get it - it’s peanuts compared to what people report for lots of FAANG. If you can go there and want that work life balance then have at it. Benefits are also better at Microsoft than FAANG which adds to TC.

      If the other offers are FAANG or unicorn sure. If they are from some other company they think is not as prestigious, then they ignore

      They outbid Indeed the second time by giving me one level higher than their initial offer. I believe it depends on the hiring manager and how bad the team wants you.
