    Anyone know the comp for a new grad PM with a MSCS?

      Thanks for the advice. Planning on getting at least one competing offer. Is there anywhere I can view the levels along with their title and comp? Or does it vary too much?

      Search here on Blind, toooons of comp posts where people post level and pay. Just make sure they're from Eng or PM, not Sales or Design or Mgmt.

      60 is almost impossible unless you interned at the company

      I'm a grad intern now so I might have a shot :)

      Play up that and the value you delivered as an intern. Still strongly recommend a good competitive offer though. Apply for a couple Amazon jobs, interview and tell them you've got an offer deadline, they'll turn around an interview and offer quick. You don't have to want to work there, you just should understand your worth. I'd suggest Facebook over Amazon as the pay is better, but I'm unfamiliar with how long their process takes; Google takes *forever*.

      Is it up to recruiter or hiring manager or both whether you start at 59 vs 60?

    • Microsoft nadellagut
      My friend just mentioned he will interview at Google and Facebook and they upped their offer from 59 to 60. He had no plans of interviewing 😉

      Yeah I believe it, my recruiter currently is dogging me about which companies I plan to interview with and when...at least they're taking steps to retain talent

      How does one understand the level of the job profile?

    No salary can be compensation enough for the contempt that your existence as PM creates in this world.

    Glassdoor is usually not far off.. Just look there...

      OP
      I did, but want to hear it from the folks that are at the company. Apparently, Glassdoor is not too accurate.
      Jul 12, 2017
    • Amazon mrLogic
      Glassdoor numbers in my opinion are definitely realistic.
      Jul 13, 2017
    • Microsoft Obama2020
      Glassdoor is generally 10% less than actual median figures, atleast at Microsoft. They probably still have stale data.
      Jul 14, 2017
    • BCG hellboi
      Glassdoor is definitely no longer accurate. Salaries in Seattle have gone up a lot in the last couple of years with the extreme fight for talent.

    Depends on if your HW or SW. HW side generally makes less money. Also depends on your department. Program Manager in WDS (specifically Surface product line) Reliability made about $80k.

    OP
    I don't know the program manager levels at Microsoft. Let's say 3-5 years of experience.
    Jul 12, 20173
    • Microsoft / EngHarmar
      Probably around $120-130K base plus $20-30K bonus/stock per year. Signing bonus/stocks are flexible.
      Jul 13, 2017
    • Microsoft / EngHarmar
      More if you can convince them you're senior level.
      Jul 13, 2017
    • BCG hellboi
      How much more ? What's the max a group pm can earn you think ?
      Jul 19, 2017
  • Paysa jiDx56
    Based on data gathered from more than 7K Program Managers working at Microsoft, we can tell the average salary is $179K per year, ranging from $137K to $222K.

    Base Salary is $123K and ranges from $100K to $147K.

    Here's a picture that can show you what the average salary package looks like.

    • Microsoft / EngHarmar
      Knowing how the Microsoft rewards system works, very few people with $123K base are getting a $25K bonus - that's top of range for those folks. And $31K annual stock is way out of range. Maybe as signing stock, but annual rewards are much lower at that level.

      Those annual rewards are typical of someone with $150K+ base.
      Sep 25, 2017
    • Paysa jiDx56
      The info is from approximately 7K Program Managers at Microsoft who are on the Paysa Platform, plus watching Microsoft make offers in that range as well.
