      Why don’t you try? If we say no, will you not try? If we say yes but they won’t give you more will you be mad?

      Thanks.
      I will try again. I had initially asked for 125k RSU and recruiter came back with 75k

      I have a tiny bit more experience than you, and I was offered 100K RSU. Recently. I think the max they can give is 200K RSU, but only very competitive candidates get that.

    I get that vest is over 4 yrs, but is that 75k/yr or for all 4 yrs? If all 4 that works out to ~160 tc or 170 tc if you count signing bonus over 4 yrs. (Seems on the low side)
