I’ve got an offer from Uber for SWE 5a in SF Bay Area:

* Cash: ~190k / year
* RSUs: ~180k / year
* Bonus: ~28k / year

Total comes down to ~400k. I was told that you have to grow above 5a and hiring for higher levels is a rare exception, which I’m not.

I have 10 yoe if that matters.

Does this look any good or should I be disappointed?

    5A should mean an annual refresher of 105k as well. You want to x0.375 to get the annual income over 4 years

    How does Uber handle RSUs? Are you sure that isn't just an initial grant that will vest over 4 years?

      Pretty sure, I already divided 4 year number provided to me by 4 to produce what you see above.

    Quite high imo. Also U stock is attractively priced right now. You'll get a good price on a lot of stock.

    Good offer and also good timing with the offer as you might get relatively more stocks compared to people who joined pre-ipo due to current stock price.

    Did you negotiate? What was the initial offer? Looking good if you can score sign up bonus
