Update:

I was only able to negotiate stock component. Got from 3500 -> 4000 rs

I really like the NYC, but doesnt look like I’m getting many opportunities like this. Should I go from NYC (tech in IB) to Seattle? And how hard will it be to switch back to NYC after an year?


Original Post:

Just got numbers from Hiring Manager. Was told this is the top of the range

Postion: IC2
Location: Seattle

Base: 140k

Stock: 3500 rsu (~200k) —> 4000 rsu (~226k) over 4 years, vested equally

Signing: 30k
Relocation: 10k

TC: 210k / year
Yoe: ~2

Background: Interviewed and passed for ic3, but because of yoe less than minimum required, getting ic2 level. However, hm said to keep me on top range for ic2

Thinking of giving 150k base and 5000 rsu as counter (TC: ~220k)

Does this sound good?

    You have 2yoe. 200k is an incredible deal. Take it.

    Or counter.... What's the worst that'll happen? (they'll pull the offer)

      They won’t pull the offer if you counter? They’ll just say no to your counter. Don’t scare people

    Yep, this is top tier. Your Hiring Manager is being honest. Anything higher is going to require SVP approval and a business justification, low chance to negotiate higher

      Were your other components in the similar range? Or did the high rsu compensate for low base/sign on?

      Same as yours. Also 10k relocation was after tax

      Was the after tax mentioned while giving the offer? Also did you have any experience before graduating?

      It’s mentioned in the relocation doc. Recruiter told me over the phone also. I was straight out of college.

    HM is correct. That offer is maxed out. If you can a counter-offer, bring it to the table to negotiate.
