Hi folks, can you please let me know what is the equity offered for a senior manager at Uber? I am trying to negotiate. Also what is the range of the base salary?

    Is it senior manager for eng , product or design ? Also if you’re making upto 800k at google, it’ll be really tough to get that at uber...

      As someone who came from FANG, and who manages other senior eng managers - I can tell you uber will not meet your Google comp ( which based on my experience is quite inflated and you know it - unless you came from an acquisition, in which case you are not getting that kind of refresh). 3.2 M over 4 years at Google (assuming your 800k number!) - uber will never match that, I would be surprised if any company will, unless you’re an expert in a specific field uber cares about ( Maps, driverless etc) - and even then, we would not give that to a senior manager, an IC - at least has a case to make.

      If you really want to join uber, at that level - my sincere advice is not to lie about comp - you will not be hired. Specially with DK in the house, there is no way a comp over 950k equity over 4 years gets approved.

      If you’re really pulling 2M -3.2M ( a variance I cannot get my head around) - don’t leave, milk that comp over next 4 years. There’ll always be another startup!

      Fair points. I gave the variance just to keep a little anonymity. I am about to reach my cliff and thus am looking. 950K stock seems really low for L6 at Uber? In some other threads it seemed people got already 40k RSu units = 2M. Possible?

      2M is a little above average. I got 60k, almost 3M. Joined 2016. If you are from VMware, you could get 4M at level 6.

      And what is your level? Why do you get 4M if you are from VMware? Two opposing opinions in the same thread. WDYT what "head of" has to say?

      40k RSU units post shake up - impossible. Maybe 18k to 20k. $1M at $48.77 at the most. Although I am not sure we can value Uber at $48.77, can we? And why should someone from VMWare get 4M?

      I think 30k+ RSUs is reasonable to expect for a senior manager considering EM2s are in the 20k+ range.

    Not sure, what game you are talking about, but I have a lot of GOOG equity which will be hard to leave behind with such an offer, plus also have an Amazon offer, which will share with the hiring team.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the team and role. But also have to consider financials before making a decision.

    If by game you mean trying to negotiate, I think that is a fair thing to do with any business contract and using any platform(blind) to get as much info as possible for the deal is not wrong.

    What does your offer look like? I have seen a few Uber offers made out to friends/family. I can benchmark yours.

      If you’re really making 500-800k a year, just give them your w2 as proof.

    Welcome to life under Dara. I think it’s a decent offer. Also, if you were interviewing for a role like that (very specific role imo) and your future manager/recruiter we’re on blind too - they probably saw the game you were playing!

    Please post bonus numbers as well.. $190k is an above average base. Please post actual RSU offer, I don't know what per share value you are using but is it 12k/13k? What actual level did you get? How many years design experience do you have? Was your interview strong or mediocre? What feedback did the recruiter give you?
