      I was just saying “tech” as the acronym. Yes Splunk WLB is better than M but M doesn’t tend to hire 65s externally too often.

    If this is in engineering this is on the mid to higher end of the P4 level. Congrats

    How many stock units were you offered? There might be slight room for negotiation on base there. I was offered a similar base for a Snr. role recently but after some negotiation got a bit of a bump.

      I wasn’t given a number. I was given a value.

      Ask for number of units, cuz I am pretty sure that will be mentioned in offer letter. A good target is anything closer to 2000 units for P4.

      Splunk doesn't offer units anymore, it changed to be a $$ value which will be converted to units based on the stock price

      Got a very similar offer from Splunk recently for Sr. SW engineer in SF. The RSU was 250k $$ / 4 yrs, and the number of units depends on the trailing 60 days.

    The offer for P4 is good but I was hoping for a P5 offer as I have a few other offers for P5 equivalent that is around 330k TC. But I’m glad to hear that this is a solid P4 offer!

      They hired P5 for the role from external due to a lack of internal expertise. I was the “runner up” and offered P4 while the P5 candidate was offered P5 (they clearly did have better credentials than me based on my research of the individual).

      Hmmmm, I'd be interested in the team of the company then, cause certainly on the PS side of things I have been told by a number of people they don't hire externally to P5. If you don't feel safe sharing I understand.

      Oh, I could see that happening then, ok cool. Since that's a whole new thing for the company.

    I was hoping for something in the 3s but it didn’t seem to happen :(

    My current role has significantly more upside than the Splunk offer so I’m wondering if it’s worth it. Especially considering I have other offers. Wondering if it’s worth a lower title vs other companies higher titles.
