I am posting in this group to preserve my identity since I am presently working for a company that isn’t very well known in the US. I received an offer from Rally Health for a senior software engineer position at San Francisco with the details as follows:

Base: 160k
United Heath group Rsu: 25k/4
United health group Options: 25k/4
Signing bonus: 10k
Bonus: 8% target
Yearly refresher: Around 23.5k split 50-50 between rsu and options

My current tc is 123k and I have 5 yoe after master’s in USA (CS). I have no other offers and this is the max they can give me as communicated by the hr. Do you think it’s a fair offer and should I take it? I am very unhappy at my present job because of low pay and boring work. I would be really grateful if you can evaluate this offer. Thanks!

      Thanks for your reply. Is it a low offer as compared to companies like ebay, Cisco, PayPal etc (tier 2 or 3) companies? I just want to be paid the median salary for now to get myself to a better place than where I currently am.

    You could ask for a better signing bonus, and maybe ask for some more stock if you really felt like negotiating. That seems like on-par for Rally though.

      Thanks a lot for replying with your analysis. Isn’t 25k rsu and 25k nso very low over 4 years? There doesn’t seem to be much upside for sticking around long. What do you think? I really regret not having another offer to drive up the offer. But if I do end up taking it, I want to be sure that I am on par with other senior engineers in the company in terms of tc.

      ask for details about the role, then say the responsibilities are higher than what they told you at the beginning and ask for a bit more

    The role details never changed during the course of the interviews. So that won’t fly with them. What do you reckon?
