So I eventually got the offer from Microsoft for a CSA after weeks of anxious waiting. I must say the comp is underwhelming. L61 bases USD50,000, no signon, USD5000 share options, bonus to be determined on resumption. With over 10 years experience in software development in Nigeria, I had thought that CSA roles start from L62/L64. Does any other person have such low offer from Microsoft with similar YOE. I am thinking of rejecting the offer.

- Microsoft 😈.👿.😈I have no idea if 50k is good or bad in Nigeria, but I can tell you that a lot of people in Seattle don’t make that much (including many working at Microsoft as vendors). Maybe try to see if you can get on a higher band? Although, at a lower level you can expect to meet your targets more easily and you can always be promoted fast.
- Microsoft vkt5g76You can live pretty well with this salary in Nigeria... Adjusted to COL, people in the Vancouver office probably get it worse with the crazy COL over there.
