SWE: $160 Base / $400k RSU / No bonus
YOE: 6

I think I'm coming in at L4 based on those numbers.

I have 6 YOE but not at tech companies, consulting like EY and smaller firms.

I have on sites with LinkedIn, Uber Eats and Amazon coming up, plus an existing offer.

Is there any room for negotiation?

      Is Levels.fyi inaccurate? The average I'm seeing there is 294k and there's a few over 315k.

      Majority of that is pre ipo when stock grants were crazier.

      Bumped base by 5, RSU went to 480, and added sign on of 30k. This is after two rounds of negotiating and getting an offer from LI. I cancelled Amazon and Uber afterwards

    I don’t feel you can get 30% more on L4

      You're right, they did give me a bump of 6% overall in TC and a sign on bonus

      Did you have any other offer? What arguments did you gave to get tc bump and sign on.

      I said, thanks but can we work together to get the TC closer to a target I was hoping to reach. Then I gave them a target that was 30% higher in TC. They came back with only 6% higher plus sign on.

    Yes. Get offers from upcoming on sites. Then they will have to.

    Any joining bonus? Is there any annual bonus at Pinterest?

      No joining bonus mentioned in offer. They mentioned they do salary adjustment every year and promotion rounds every year.

      Considering no bonus every year, you might want to ask for more base.

      I'm going to suggest a target TC that's 30% more then current. I don't care about the mix so much tbh.
