Asking for a friend -

    That offers dogshit. With 4YoE I'd expect it to be substantially higher.

      I don't think it is 4yoe at big tech companies. If it is outside the US, or at small companies, msft will treat the candidate as a college hire.
      Actually less than a college hire

    Looks like a new grad offer

      That's worse than the standard new grad offer in 2013...

    It's not unreasonable for L60 BUT and this is a big but, your friend probably should be at a higher level.

      The stocks seem low. I've seen up to 100k for 59 few years back, but that was a college hire. Base is on the lower end of 61.

      Those big grants to college hires almost all go to one (or both) of:
      - returning interns who were rated well
      - grads with competes from FAANG+

    At 4 YOE they should be offering at least L61, which should be in the 127-130 base range

    Stock should be a lot higher if it's an eng role, same with signing

  • Microsoft ?!?!?!?!
    Ask for a lot more. Especially with competing offer. Microsoft really taking advantage of people recently. Is your "friend" a minority?

    Not a good offer. I got the same thing at L59 with 2 YOE coming from a shitty no-name company.
