    Knowing that SamSung US doesn’t have ESPP/RSU, I would say the base is very low for 6 YOE. Better to have competing offers to get a better offer.

      6 YOE with MS should give you minimum Staff Enginner level.

    Is this for Health team?
    Make sure you dont get screwed on your Career Level by HR. If you are just software Engineer and not Staff this offer is fairly standard. Only base and signing bonus can be negotiated though

    They're giving you the lower end of L6. Max is 160k base. Rest would be non negotiable. I'm assuming you're going to the tv ads team. Don't go there unless you absolutely have to go. Bunch of dumb c*#ts

    I would say keep interviewing, use this offer to negotiate somewhere else. There had been layoffs happening in some Samsung subsidiaries. They are shipping jobs to Korea and India.

    You can push up base to 160k. Not sure about sign on bonus. Your best bet is to have a competing offer, they will match or beat.
