In the industry for almost a year, but I code every single day and my skill set is even better than Specialist at my company (based on them coming to me and asking me questions about the technology and also being able to get things done faster and better than them). Was given the opportunity to manage a team of 10 to build a project from scratch and product is starting to sell.
(Apologize if it seems like I’m bragging, just wanted to layout a clear picture on what I’m trying to achieve and wanted to get opinion on it)
Oh, and I do Product, UX, UI, Front end and back end development on the side. (I don’t even know if this is relevant anymore, just wanted to put it out to see if you guys think that these might be a good sell for getting a higher level with not as much experience)
Am currently offered level 60 at Microsoft with potential
Equity: 9k stock max and 20% cash max
Sign on: not discussed yet
Will be talking to manager next week to learn about the position. I want to negotiate to get lv61 position ( been told that it might be impossible, but I believe in hope). And use that position level to get a better TC.
Other than that, am still interviewing with Google and Bloomberg. So am asking for at least a months extension, but recruiter kept mentioning it will be hard.
9k is one year or four?
My new grad offer from Amazon 4 years ago was slightly higher I think this is a pretty weak new grad offer.
