    Industry hire and you expect 100k rsu over 4 years?

    Get realistic, you can get somewhere around 25k tops.

    If you think it doesn't value you enough, move on to interview with Facebook, google & etc... they pay good rsu the problem is, can you get in?

      What’s wrong with industry hire expecting 100k rsus?!
      Aug 2, 2018
    • Microsoft Dabuka
      The fact that Microsoft doesn't pay that much

      Just lightly browse blind and you will see sde2 gets like 75k max, most get 40k. So you tell me what's wrong with expecting 100k rsu as sde1.

      College hires routinely get this kind of stock on hire. An L60 shouldn't pull in less than that?

      This is industry hire. Microsoft pay peanut for industry hire. They only pay the big rsu to college hire to compete with google Facebook amazon etc...

      As for industry hire, of you got Facebook google you would go there, if you didn't well Microsoft won't pay for what you can't Getz

      Maybe you are out of touch then. Microsoft routinely gives 75-100K for industry hires.

    They get back within 2-3 days at the maximum.
    Let us know what you get as a final offer. We are as curious as you were to get your answers from us.

      117/30K/20K Is that the final offer? Is it 30K per year or 30K over 4 years?

      L60 is typically for people with 1-2 years of experience.

      They suck in RSU. They will say Seattle is cheap and you can afford a 2BHK for 2k$ . This is all bull shit. They are losing good talent over other companies.
      MSFT pays a lot if you are a game changer and bring something different . If you are just another SWE , you have no importance.
