    200k RSU are unheard of for this level. They won't even negotiate they will just drop the conversation so be careful. We are extremely poor for RSU. Just continue interviewing any other public company tier 1 will give u more than SFDC.

      Do you mean $200k over one year or over 4 years? I have heard of $450k over 4 years so $200k over 4 years seems low.

      When u say u heard that means the person you heard from is lying to you possibly boasting something which cannot be verified. I am a role where I make these offers it does not happen.

      Monkey I got 150 over 4 years when I joined as LMTS so 200 for PMTS doesn't sound too far fetched. Maybe you're in an underfinanced org.

    200k over 4 years happens. I've seen even more in the past for certain people. But I haven't seen anything like that recently. Doesn't mean it still doesn't happen, only that I haven't seen it.

      There is a range but it's kind of all over the place (tops out around 200 I think. If you have existing RSUs you may be able to negotiate that higher with an exception)

      I'd recommend negotiating hard on the RSUs since we're pretty stingy about refreshers.
