    AFAIK Signing can go up to 50k, stock up to 160k. Regardless that’s already at the high end for new grad, the standard offer is 110k, 15k signing, 70k stocks for L59(not returning intern)

      I was only able to get an extra 10k in signing for my new grad offer l, no competing offers though. Thank god for the 25% clearance bonus or else I’d feel pretty depressed about my offer compared to all the other msft new grad offers I see on here.

      Yeah I felt a little depressed after seeing other new grad offers. I mean I’m really happy to get what I’m getting but i guess it’s just human nature.

      need to have the appropriate security clearance to work on the government side of azure + be on call. 25% of base salary paid out in quarterly installments.

      Thanks. That makes me feel a lot better. Honesty I’ve known people get way better offers than this and also related posts on Blind suggest the same. 🤔

      How long was the entire interview process at Microsoft and Amazon? Like from the date you applied all the way till you had an offer in hand? Thanks

      I tried negotiating more but was unsuccessful. The max I’ve seen people get this time is 150k stock and 50k signing.
