Offer review - Oracle BMC Senior MTS

Microsoft zygot13
Mar 13, 2018 36 Comments

5 year of experience at MS. Total compensation of $270k a year with 165k base and 370k worth rsu.

Current compensation is at around 195k with 140k base.
Seriously considering taking it since it's a lot higher than competing offer with amazon (223k Total comp in 1st year with 160k base).

Should I try negotiating further?

      Wrong info. Oracle doesn’t pay cash bonus no more than 25k. Usually less than 20

    They are low balling you. Try negotiating harder as it doesn't look like the stock will increase much.

      Senior at oracle is sde2 equivalent, so the offer is reasonable.

      But he is not sde2. He is senior in msft.

      SE - both oracle and Amazon downleved him/her. Maybe not Amazon as much since sde3 means more there. Offers are still competitive given how poorly msft pays.
