Just received a verbal offer:-

YOE: 3.5
Base: 130
Bonus: 10%
RSU: 1000
Location: San Jose

Recruiter told me that the level would be P3. I think the offer is too low.

    220 tc minimum, if not 250k. Splunk has become super cheap, don’t know why. I experienced it. My Amzn L5 was better than Splunk P4.

    I will say 150-160 base. Bonus 15%, and 1500 RSU.

      I thought the same. The base is lower than what I currently have. I work for a startup though....

      Really what is wrong with Splunk? They are becoming cheap sheep.

      Lol! They said 265 max before interviewing, I said I can work if they are close to 300k. Amzn was 291+ for L5 Research Scientist. I still went for interview as it seems they were willing to work on my expectations.

      I rocked the Splunk interview but they said they can’t meet my expectations.

      That's so unprofessional. I hate this. Something similar happened to me once.

    OP - The bonus percentage and RSU numbers are right in line with what most eng folks get joining at this level. However you should renegotiate your base.

      Thats exactly what I did.. lets see what they do. Are you sure about the bonus ? I heard it was 15%.

      It is 10% for engineers and 25% for customer success managers. Not sure where you got the 15% from. The last earning call Splunk was able to double their numbers therefore engineers got double of their bonus as a one off. But 10% is the standard. Good luck

    RSU is 1000 unit of stocks (250 units per yr) or $1M over 4 years ($250k / yr)
    Which one is the case?

      It is 1000 RSUs over a four-year period. First 25% will vest at one year anniversary of your employment.
      Definitely not $1M over 4 years.
