Opinion on Workday Offer

Intuit covfefeee

Got an offer for director role with the below comp:
Base: 190k
Sign on RSU: 180k vesting over 4 years

Is this good? I was surprised to learn there’s no bonus. What’s up with that?

Also, how good is workday with RSU refreshers every year? Generous?

    I feel that the initial RSU for director level is a bit less. Try and negotiate. But wday is generous in refreshers.

      OP said RSU allocation is 180k/year, that works out to 720k over 4 years. What is the normal RSU range at director level at wday?

      Sorry if that was not clear, but it’s 180k vesting over 4 years.

    That 180K is over 4 years span, so ~45k/year

      What's your role at intuit ? Staff engineers make 160-170k base at intuit, director should be more

    Prinicipal Engineers in Tools teams get paid similarly... you may want to clarify the team/ role/ location. Also you may be able to swing a sign on bonus

      Looks like the base and RSU are low for a director of Software Dev. Or is it for QA org?

      The best way is to try and get a competing offer from someplace else. Did you tell the recruiter what you are currently making inadvertently that they lowballed on the pay?

      Also, they may not increase base much. You can look at increasing base to 200k. They are usually flexible on RSU and can go up reasonably well.

      Try swinging a sign on bonus if you can. They can give like 20k or 25k easily.

      The recruiter need to realize that people need to be happy with the pay otherwise they will start thinking about a switch soon enough. Too bad on their part :(

      Thank you for your insights. Very very helpful! I am not in the engineering space, but am a user of the data? :)

    Refreshers are 50-60% of the initial grant. Base looks great. Congrats!
