Vmware folks, what do annual refreshers and raises (if any) look like at Vmware cloud.
Specifically at mts3 level, but any info is super helpful.
Just got an offer from them for 150k base, 125k rsu for 4 years, 25k signon for the first year and 12% annual bonus.
Have 11 y.o.

    11 years should be at least MTS 4.

    Base is ok for MTS 3, same with RSU and sign on.

    Raise is usually 3%. If you work hard, mostly +2 extra on top of bonus. If your base is below market, your manager might add a little more making you think you're getting more while you could be in the low end of compensation.

    Bonus can be more than your target, but rarely goes above 110%.

      Although I have not seen 125k rsu for mts3 until now. Just too high.

      A lot of blinders reported above 110% (Of course blind sampling bias)

      From my experience, pretty common. You'd only not get refreshers of you were underperforming

    Regular raises range from 0-7% (performance based), whereas standard refreshers are usually 30k - 60k.

    Fyi, the bonus can scale up or down based on performance (up to +50% multiplier)

    MTS-3 for 11 YoE? Refreshers are not as good as other companies.
