Got initial offer from unicorn in Santa-Monica
Benefits are very nice, but financial side of offer is:
Base - 175k
Stock options - worth $25k (told verbally) UPDATE below
Position Principal Data Engineer (AWS).
Total TC = 192K
TC: 150k+20% = 180k
Have a few day for accept it.
I like what company is doing, but concerned about financial side of this deal.
1. How does community think, should I accept it negotiate for higher (how much %) ?
2. Stock options - should I much put attention on it ?
Please share your experience!'
180k + 10%
350k stock options in 4 years.
TC around 270k
Willing to accept.
For reference, I have 1 YOE after grad school with TC 195K (though in SF).
