OCI COMPENSATION IC-3

Amazon VBBh
Aug 4 29 Comments

Recently got a verbal offer from Oracle OCI.

Location : Seattle downtown

Base : $150k
Stocks : Approx 90k per year [ 6500 vesting across 4 years (25 % at each anniversary) ]
Sign on bonus : $ 20k

Total TC : 150 + 90 = $240 k

No target annual bonus or guaranteed refreshments.

3 Years of work exp + MS in Computer Science @ a top 50 CS school in the US.

I have a verbal acceptance from Amazon Alexa team - Seattle [ Yet to receive offer details | Amzn is aware of my OCI TC ].

Have onsite scheduled at Microsoft Bellevue [Dynamics365 / Azure teams ] & Twitter Seattle in the next 3 weeks.

OCI is trying to trip me with the 25 % per year vesting schedule (once per year, no quarterly vesting ). Also, with the 2019 layoffs, it seems like a risky play.

Any suggestions about the current OCI compensation offer ?

How much should my counter offer be ?

I really wanna get into Microsoft but I'm not sure if MS will ab able to beat OCI/AMZN considering that i have 3 YOE.

My BATNA (Best alternative to a negotiated agreement) is to keep studying and try FB / GOOGLE seattle.

Please advice.

    With only 3 years, you have a very high unrealistic expectations. I blame blind.

    I think that the base should go up by 10k - 20 k. I know Recent College Grads at Amazon making 150-180 in Base + bonus.

    I'm not the right person to answer this but does anyone from Oracle here know whether the RSU vesting period is negotiable to once every quarter from the annual vesting that is offered ?

      I was told me flat out that it is non-negotiable when I joined. (Different times though.)

      Oracle generally won't negotiate.

    Stay away from OCI, constant reorgs and lay-offs. Clueless management. They don’t have any customers, Larry will shut them down in a couple of years. The worst of Amazon managers are at OCI

    What value does OCI add on your resume? It offers at most 2 years of slightly higher pay than companies like twitter before you potentially get fired.

    That's a fantastic offer. Devs with 20 years of experience make less at Oracle in Redwood Shores.

    OP, that’s a good offer considering your experience and level. It’s the same as mine, but I’m an IC4. Then again, I didn’t join Oracle as part of OCI, I transferred to a team here after a couple of years.

    What's your current TC? If you are not on a visa, and you like the team you interviewed with at OCI; I would advise to definitely go for it. Microsoft salaries will be puny compared to this.
