SDE1 Amazon Offer Evaluation

New Safira
Aug 5, 2018 24 Comments

Salary: $108K
Signing: $24K/20K first and second year
RSU: $70K over 4 years (5/15/40/40)
Relocation: 10K lump sum or assistance service

Finished my masters this year. Does this offer reflect that accurately? How is it in comparison to the B.S. new-grad offers?

Thanks!

    Looks pretty middle of the offer range for new grad offers. It can go up to 112k, 35, 30, and 75.

    Not bad tho

      Probably wasn't a new grad then. I'm also friends with a PM in UP and she's also confirmed that all new grad offers are non negotiable.

      Masters students get a higher offer btw. I forgot to mention that. Also if you're placed in the bay area or NYC you get a higher offer

      He was a new grad (interned at another top company), and to the best of my knowledge doesn’t have a masters.

      He’s Seattle.

      They just released a new offer. Last summer it was 118k base, 38.5k and 33k signing bonus for year 1 and year 2, and 75k stocks. Not sure what the new offer looks like

    What are you? Just a fresh graduate.
    It is a good offer. Go for it unless you get offers from Google/fb. Focus on learning, not TC and change job later based on your learning/experience

    Standard/universal number. Not negotiable unless you have a better offer from FB or Google.

      They won't even negotiate if you have a better offer. I know a bunch of return interns that went over to Google and FB because Amazon wouldn't negotiate at all.

      Amazon matches if the candidate has competing offers from these two.
