Microsoft Offer - L62

Target horsepower
Nov 13 33 Comments

I am expecting an offer from them soon and wanted to know how much I can expect and how much max they could go for this level. I felt my interview went well. I interviewed on Friday and got the verbal confirmation from them on Monday Morning.

MSFT Team: IC3 (Teams and Skype backend is what I was said).
Location: Seattle

Competing Offers:
Both of them in bay area: ~260K

YOE: 5+

Current TC: 200k Bay Area

EDIT: comsidering I’m not very willing to relocate, I don’t want to accept an offer that is less than 250k. Is this a possibility?

    I haven’t researched the TC’s before my interview. Should have done that probably! I wonder how MSFT is able to retain top talent by not paying them well!

      UgfdG4o: do you have any clue about the IC3 org / team? I heard it empowers the Teams / Skype / Office365, but don't have much insights into other than that.

      No, you can ask the recruiter to schedule a call with the hiring manager to learn more about the team projects etc.

    Interview was LC medium I would say. Most of them are on LC tagged, some of them not.

      I feel 200 is low ball. Don’t you think so?

      200 is on the higher side. Expect a 175k offer for L62 in Redmond.

      That's lower than new grad offers...

      MS new grad offers are anyways better than Fb/G. Also MS is known to low-ball industry hires

      Yeah I felt the same too. I don’t know why does it low ball the industry hires. I didn’t know of this before the interview. Should have researched a little more probably.

      Any reason for saying so? I have heard some good reviews about it in the past.

    200k at most in Redmond. Bay may be a little bit higher. Msft is not known for high TC.

    What are the bay area offers like? Which companies? This would determine what they would offer you
