      I believe you may get 40 -60k worth of stocks as your initial grant. Do let us know what offer you receive.

      No numbers were given. I asked for 135k-140k base. Was told what I asked was too high

      Cool. The first offer they give will be around $120k total comp.

      You can probably negotiate up to $115k base + $100k stocks over 4 years.

      At ServiceNow it’s easier to ask for more stock over higher pay.

    I interviewed at Santa Clara, for a l3 (senior position) full stack. After the interview I got a verbal offer from recruiter the next day saying they would actually want to hire me for l4. I have 5 years exp, masters from a very good university. I still am to receive an offer as they are still deciding on the stock options. But the base numbers look as follows after confirming the numbers from recruiter.
    1) Base 160k.
    2) bonus to be paid bi-annualy (15% = 7.5% + 7.5%)
    3) some signing bonus not decided yet.
    4) RSU over a period of 4 years.
    Hope this helps. Also let me know if the community thinks I am being low balled. I have 2 other offer from other very good companies (not FAANG though. I excelled their onsite tech but still dint get offer) and they know this.

    No idea dude. I would think 5-10% reduction in comp total would be fair, I could be wrong though.
