OCI IC2 compensation

I have an initial offer from Oracle for IC2 level with base 135k and 35-45k stocks per year with the TC amounting to 170-180k per year.

Is this less / on par with what Oracle is currently offering candidates?

Yoe : 2 in India, 2 1/2 in US, total 4 1/2

    I love seeing these posts. This one makes me remember how severely underpaid I am... then again I’m not at HQ.

    OP - is this offer for HQ or Seattle or elsewhere? Curious because I had a similar offer when I first started and I joined (non-OCI team) as an IC4.

      The offer is for a position at Seattle.

      Then it sounds like a decent deal and as a IC2, it is definitely easier to move up.

      Well, it’s definitely easier to move from IC2 to 3 than it is from a 4 to 5. Based on the last promo round for OCI, going from 4 to 5 required exec review, while anything below did not.

      If you can show value And deliver on a highly visible product/service, you’ll get recognition (what form that takes? I couldn’t give you a definite answer).

      Keep in mind that for promos you still need recs so make sure you’re establishing good rapport with people inside And outside of your team. It helps lots if you have a good manager which I understand can be difficult to come by. It hurts lots if you’re under a manager that doesn’t care.

      I feel like it depends on what your goals are.

      Are you looking for some place to stay for the next 5+ years? Maybe look elsewhere.

      Are you looking to gain experience in the next couple of years? Join, but make sure you’re with a good team (meaning people/mgmt) and/or (hopefully and) on a visible product (meaning impt to execs/money making).

      Are you looking for OCI money? Not sure it’s there anymore.

    Got similar offer for similar position and place. Do you know the team you are placed in or joining?

    OP
    There is only a sign on + relocation bonus of 5k. So I wouldn’t count that towards TC.

    Mine was 140k/40k stock a year and 10k sign on, so in the ballpark
