Does MSFT signing bonus include gross up? Expecting return offer and cannot remember if they gross up the signing bonus or not. Will help in negotiating competitive salary.

TC: 245k

    It's been a while but I think my first half of signing bonus (signed after internship) was given Gross up then the second half after starting was taxed. This was roughly 5 years ago though. 5k before and 5k after for those wanting to know the numbers (I had no competing offers).

      Interesting. I didn't realize any of it was paid up front. Thanks for help

      It's not uncommon for newgrad offers when the start date is 6+ month away. It's a tactic they use to make it less likely for the newgrad to interview at other companies.
