I got offers from the above 4 companies but it looks like Amazon and Facebook both low balled offers to me which happened to be lesser than my current Tc of 200k.

Yoe - 2 years

Oracle -
Tc- 240k/year
Base - 155k
Bonus - 15k
Stock - 70k

Amazon -
Tc - 180k/year
Base - 140k
Bonus +stock - 40k
Level - l5

Facebook -
Tc - 190k/year
Base - 140k
Stock - 50k
Level - e4

I was really excited about fb until they low balled me. How do I plan to negotiate my offers so that I can make the most of all the offers?

    Negotiate up the highest offer (Oracle) by telling them that you're receiving Amazon and Facebook offers, then ask Amazon to beat, then ask Facebook to beat.

    I shake my head when looking at post here and people with 2 YOE feel 200k is not enough. What have we become...

      Gotta milk it when there is a chance. You will say you wished to have made more when bubble stops and people are laid off left and right and salary goes down. Look at 2000.

      True. Do not go after Oracle's money. All that glitters is not gold.

    • Run away from Oracle for now . They will be renamed MySQL in 5 years.

      I agree in isolation it is not small money. But compared to what other people have been offered and what I currently make, it definitely is a much lesser number than I expected.

      First off, your current TC is very high for 2 yoe. Second, it’s just a starting point. You will have yearly refreshers, promotions, etc. I think you should focus on the company/team that most interests you. You’ll be just fine on pay.

    Tell Amazon that Facebook offered $220k. That's the max they can offer for L5 without VP approval. They might do it but probably won't due to 2 YOE.

    2 YOE IC3 at OCI may put you at a disadvantage for getting a bonus since you will be competing against those who have more experience. From what I have heard they are not common, if at all anyways.

  • These are very good offers for someone with almost no exp.
