Hi,
my recruiter is asking me to tell the desired Base, signing and stock compensation I want for a job as an SDE1 in Azure Networking in Seattle. I have 2 yoe.

I am from another country, so I have literally no idea what to ask for. Could you tell me real estimates?
Bonus question: Do you guys at ms recommend starting in Azure networking?

Thank you for reading, I really appreciate it.

Edit: Considering base: 120k; signing: 20k; stock: 40k.

      115k base is reasonable. As far as cash/stock bonus, you will probably get a lot less than new grads, maybe 5k cash 35k in stock vesting over 3.5y.
      You could get more, you could get 0. You can search around blind, lots of info here.

      Thank you, I've searched all around blind but most comments seem really unreasonable, much higher than what I considered. I know new grads will get more and considered that TC to start high in the bargain, but maybe its illusional.

    If you are an industry hire, expect L60 and low ball offer.
