      I have not started discussions yet. I got mail from HR that I have cleared the interview and they want to discuss compensation.

    I would not be surprised if they lowballed you on level and tried to give you stock to compensate. 15 years is a long time, 65 would be the min level I would even consider.

    Depending on the role, that might even be too low.

    HR called me. They are ready to offer SSE position. I have asked for principal engineer position. They said they will update. The opening is for Azure pi. How is work there? Also will it be a right decision to move to Redmond from Bay area considering career growth and opportunities.

      Thanks. My q was are you getting 200k worth of stock per year? If you do I'm thinking you probably joined in early 2016 and that's why. Otherwise I just don't see that happening at V

      Must be a L64 offer?
      Did you push for L65? They have more latitude in that level coz it falls in principal engg level. Also what about sign on? Thy usually have a hefty sign on that covers first 2 years.

      Btw what's your yoe?
