Received verbal offer for staff sde from Okta Bellevue with base pay 160k. Wtf? What should I ask for? 160k base sounds very low to me. RSUs are decent but not very high. Serious suggestions please?

    Calm down a lot of companies with high growth stock make it up via RSU and bonus.

    Share the TC , what is the sign on ? RSU ? Annual bonus target and annual rsu target.

    I had offer two months back, was offered 190k base. But the RSU does not look good.

      Are you sure? Even principal at Okta does not get 190k.

      Yeah. I guess they really want me to join. Even the director called me after they extended the offer. Interesting part is, their CTO was part of my interview loop.

      BTW, initial base was 180k, 190k was after negotiation.

      Use your leverage. They haven’t done enough to make you consider leaving.
