Oracle OCI offer

The hiring manager wants me to come up with a number that I won't refuse and he will try and make that happen.

This is for IC4 level. Any suggestions on how I can approach this? What is a reasonable number to ask for?

YoE: 10

Thanks!

    $380k TC would be the max for IC4

      Thanks! What sort of split for Base/Stock/Sign-on bonus makes sense?

      Take a look at Levels.fyi for the listings in Seattle. The numbers are quite accurate for the average offers from OCI. Of course, there are always outliers due to specialization, buyout of vesting stocks at previous company, competing offers, and etc.

      Yes 350k to 400k is good for IC4. Ive seen base be as high as 230k for IC4.

      Wasn't too hard. LC should prepare you well enough for it. Design question was pretty straightforward as well.

      How else could I have responded? I have a few interviews coming up and told him I want to be done with all of them first. He asked for a number that would make me accept their offer right away and not interview with other companies.

      in that case ask for 400k tc for first 4 years, but keep interviewing because they probably can’t match it.

    Tell him to give you the biggest offer he can, and you'll see if it'll make you stop interviewing elsewhere...

    180-190 base. 15000 - 16000 RSU. The rest is sign on.

      That's more than 400K TC based on today's stock price...
