      Yeah, you should definitely push up on the RSUs. I have 4 years of experience and was just looking to see what was out there. Google and Apple both offered 400k in RSUs over 4 years.

      400K RSU from Apple with 4 years experience (I am assuming it’s a ICT3 offer); that’s definitely a lot on the higher side.

    Do you have a counter offer to negotiate? Your total comp comes out to be 196k. You can try pushing it to 220k. Also the signon can be negotiated.

      I have offer from lyft for which the total comp is around 235k but its mostly pre ipo rsu’s. I have told the recruiter about it and he said he will talk to comp team. Also i have amazon offer but they are too slow in moving forward , haven’t given the numbers yet.

      220 is median/high for L4 ?

      I think it is start for L4. Most of the people I know of have ~250k. I would suggest to push lifts offer higher. Seems low considering pre ipo numbers.

    It should be similar, I️ hear they’re merging the recruiting platforms?

    May be Neat has a different compensation structure than Google. Not sure on that part though.

    I got a similar offer. Only my base is slightly lower. Looks like this is an standard offer. Are you gonna try to negotiate?
