    Nope .. amazon doesn’t pay that much even with stock appreciation .. even for principal that would be extremely high end

      Did you just join? If you were bottom/mid of band 3 years ago, you would be at 500+. If principal, your at 700+.

    Great L5 offer! especially the RSUs.
    You can try to ask for more sign on but you're a top band L5 with that offer already

      Why is Google so obsessive about giving low cash sign-on?

    Signon you can get more. Rsu and base I doubt very much. L5 salary band top cap is around 190. Maybe you can get more, but unlikely. If you it basically means no raises until you get promoted.

    Sign on is on the lower end. Could negotiate for 50-75k. Base probably 10-15k more.

    They never told me the comp band and won’t budge on sign on .. said this is final .. take it or leave it! This was after one round of negotiation

      If the position is in California ask them to tell you the comp band. It’s a good offer either way, but more data is better than less data.

    What's your current comp as l6? With stock run up, you should be in 400-500k range?

    What did they say when you asked them what the compensation band is for L5?

    Just wondering, is that standard sign on? Seems really low.
