  • For 6 YOE the level most people would get at Okta is staff software engineer. TC probably would be more like 225-250k at face value. RSU vest over 4 years with 1 year cliff and quarterly after. Who knows where our stock will be by the time any of your RSU vest but so far the company seems to be doing well. Main perks are m/w/f free lunch, free phone and home internet, and decent office snacks. Benefits are pretty good with cheap insurance, ESPP (15% contribution max, 15% discount, and you get the best price of first/last day in each period), 401k but no match. Team is great with lots of focus on making a rock-solid product. Management is very invested in success and not out to make a quick buck. If youโ€™d be in SF, there will be a brand new office at 100 first street starting in a few weeks

      equity portion is Verizon RSUs, 3 year vest, vesting in 1 year increments. and frequent layoffs mean no way to know if you will make next vest date. also they convert to cash on vest, so if u actually want vz shares then you gotta buy shares again.

      target bonus % is high but the next company multiplier maybe 0. hell maybe a negative number.

      if you look at the Trump administration and say โ€œwish i could work somewhere that well-runโ€ then yahoo is for you!
