    Great deal. Take it if you didn’t get into FAANG and move there in 2 years if you don’t get promoted by then

      OP
      What’s the best time to switch job if I don’t get in FAANG for my first job? Should I stay at first job for a while before considering switch to FAANG or the earlier the better?

      Get promoted and then consider faang. Groupon is a good company to have on your resume to start your career

      YOE stands for years of experience. So 0.25 YOE would be appropriate. And to me co-op/internship doesn’t really count. The wording just seems a bit funny. If it’s a return offer just say so. But yeah I’d say that’s more than fair for someone with no experience.

    Pretty standard new grad offer, sign on a bit higher than most, stock a bit lower than most. Try to negotiate stock a little bit if you can but otherwise it’s alright.
