      For example, my recent bay area Google L4 offer exceeds 300K TC even though it started out far below your offer. I wasn't able to do this competing offers from strong competitors, despite all my offers starting out low.

      In 2018 I negotiated very hard with Uber, they decided to take away the offer over negotiating. But the recruiter was kind of asshole in his attitude, although it could have been the decision of hiring manager. I didn’t have competing offers at that time though but I did rock the interview just like I did at Amazon.

      I also have a PhD but only about 2 years experience (hence L4). You can pm me for more details.

      Negotiating is a soft skill, you might have come across the wrong way or said something Uber perceived negatively. Do you remember any of the details, or what they said while taking away the offer? It's incredibly rare for an offer to be revoked during negotiations.

    Is that Sunnyvale Moffett park location? Microsoft and Comcast nearby would both offer same TC for much better WLB. People with PhD+3 years make slightly more at Comcast

      Palo Alto. Don’t want to work at Comcast unless it becomes absolutely necessary. Talked with a recruiter there when I was desperately looking, TC wasn’t gr8 for senior level.

    My husband gets a base of $170K with 4 years experience and prior to that PhD. You probably should ask for more. He is in CV & ML space as well

    OP
    I want to say that I interviewed at Splunk P4 which is overlapping with L5 and L6 of Amazon. They were offering 265k. The hiring manager said I rocked the interview but they can’t match my expectations of offer close to 300k.
