I was offered 100k salary with 20k bonus doled out in 5k increments over 4 years at Disney in Seattle. I have 1 1/2 years experience. Should I quit, enjoy my time off, and look for more gainful employment or is this what I can expect from most places?

- Microsoft ESnX24Stay the hell away from Disney. Unless of course you want your soul, career and life to die
- Piece of shit offer from a very successful company. Fuck them
- Disney fKYM01Disney always lowballs. They want everything for nothing and they make it very plain that there are 50 more in line behind you that would jump at it. It comes down to whether it's a decent living for you and whether you'll sacrifice pay, time, and a chunk of sanity for the name Disney on your resume. There are perks and depending on the team you work with, it could be a great move, but nobody works at Disney because they pay well. And that will not change so don't expect monster increases.
- Disney tralalaThe "bonus doled out over 4 years" is Long Term Incentive (LTI). If the position is LTI eligible every year, that piles up each year - the "golden handcuff" model. If the position is LTI eligible every year, it'll be 5k after 1st year, 10k after next, etc. going to 20k / year as it rolls each year after 4 years.
Still not what FB/AMZN/etc. offers, but you get to have a life. Whether that's worth it is up to you.
