Microsoft levels

Jul 26, 2018 9 Comments

3 yoe and switching from front end to backend role. My recruiter told me that team wants to proceed with an offer but as I don’t have much backend experience, the level might be lower. We haven’t discussed yet about what level or TC are we talking about, she just let me know about the feedback.

@Microsoft folks, what level should I expect for 3 yoe and how much TC? Position is in Seattle.

      Normally it would be 61, but it seems the team plans to downlevel OP. So L60 I guess ?

    I would think 60 since they mentioned down leveling specifically. I haven't been a manager in a while, but I would think 170 tc is doable based on some of the people i know who've joined at that level.

      Should I negotiate before getting the offer letter or after?

      You should wait until you have the offer. You dont have to wait for the letter itself and in fact you shouldn't.
