Microsoft Lv61 offer

Motorola UDJp78
Jun 25 25 Comments

Been extended a formal offer. I didn't do any negotiating before hand as I thought the numbers were already quite good.

Current TC: from flyover Canada, not worth mentioning.
Yoe: 3
Level: SDE2 (Lv61)
Base: 133k
Sign-on: 38k
RSU: 83k

Interviewing for Amazon SDE2 (not AWS) this Friday. Microsoft wants me to decide by end of week. Not sure if I can ask Microsoft to extend my decision deadline until I hear back from Amazon.

    You can tell msft to wait and they will. Don't listen to the garbage the recruiter tells you.

      Seems like it's part of their online career portal. It says the electronic offer letter will only be available for 5 business days.

      Yeah the recruiter can renew it. It's garbage the offers are valid for year. They can't find candidates as is .

      This. Just be sure to be communicative with your recruiter. They will hold off as long as you have a reason.

    Just tell Amazon you have a offer and a deadline, they’ll make a decision. Careful with numbers

    RSU is low. If they really want you, you can stretch it close to 120K. 100K at the least.

      In comparison sign in cash is higher than normal. All in all the offer is not bad

    Salary looks normal for 61. You could probably get more stock though

      Apologies. I meant per year.
      Since, we are talking about MSFT. So, 30k over 4 years is still possible.

      30k for 4 years is extremely low though. I saw 175k stocks for level 59 on blind, he/she most likely had competing offers but still come on MS. It’s not like they have good refreshers to top it up later.

      Yeah, I concur. Industry hires don't get good RSUs.

      I wonder why they keep doing that. Are they not interested in hiring best talents like their competitors? It’ll be hard for someone to choose MS if they get way better offers elsewhere which they definitely will if they pass the interview at Google, Facebook, Uber e.t.c

    I think if you do what both yaple and mbezos said you should be fine.
