Interviews were amazing and team is super happy with performance.

Can I push for TC of 330K to 350K? I do feel that for Senior Software engineers that's a good range to target based on my research. Any thoughts?

      I can refute @1221’s assertion. Splunk does in fact pay quite well. I’ve overseen several offers in this range in the last couple of months

      OP
      @HIcD60 do you think there is scope for more negotiation? My interviews were solid and team does want me to join but not sure if I push the offer. Mind you this is the first numbers they offered me.

      @Dell: This is not a fake offer. Infact I've seen much higher offers for same yoe at Splunk

      No joining bonus. Its only base, RSU and 15 % bonus component which is standard for P4 role.

    Ok whoever is talking about layoffs at splunk is spreading rumors. Just check .conf 19 site and look at the announcements. Internally we have been asked to prepare for expansion and growth next year. Plus refreshers for next year came in and they are solid .

    This is a solid P4 offer. You can push for maybe 10k but that's about it. Good luck and come join the party

    Do check out thelayoff.com, a lot of activity on Splunk. Favorite site for Rvbders

      But I see layoff for Every company there. What in particular about Splunk did you see there? The last time I checked they did not have any layoff listing

      Ohh shitt.. Splunk is doing layoffs too ?

      @Dell: every company does layoffs. To what extend is the biggest question. For Splunk, I did not see any layoff numbers or listing posted

    Usually, base is difficult to move. May be 5-7%, but not more than that. What's the sign on?
    I recently got a similar offer and I could move the base by 7% and RSU up by 30%. Sign on by 50%. Remember rsu and sign on is always floating. companies are not very adamant on it. If you ask base more, they might not be able to help you.

      OP
      @PinkIsGrey there is no sign on component in the offer. It's only base, RSU and 15% bonus that were given to me.

    Good offer. if your interview performance was good. Base can go up to 200k and rsu up to 350k (rsu will require approvals)

      Very unlikely. This TC is better than what Google would offer for L4 (talking about recent offers)

    290k looks too unreal for a sr sw engg position. OP how much did you bump the offer ?
