    Overall solid offer. Good base. Try push for more RSUs. Sign on has a little room for negotiation. But already good as is.

    That is solid for SDE2. You wonโ€™t have so much room to grow unless you move up to SDE3.

    Anything above $250k requires VP approval, so they wanted you. Did you have a competing offer?

      Yeah one competing offer but they are still not matching that offer

    Very strong offer. Mine was TC = 260K first year, incl signon. Your first year is well above 300K

      I didn't ask for breakdown because the offer was much lower than my TC at Box. They told me it was their max and asked me to interview for SDE 3 instead.

      Ya thatโ€™s what Amazon does. They have a range for TC.

    That looks like a good offer, probably some more room for growth in sign on. I had an offer for 178k/93k/70k/120 shares a couple of months ago, but I had a lot of other competing offers. Also they told me the base wouldnโ€™t change after a year. You may wanna check on that clause yourself too.

      Well I just read you have 7 yoe. I got that offer for 4 yoe. Maybe you can push more in base too then.
