    TC is low for SF office.

    Also, do you have competing offers?
    Symantec stock slid like 33% a few weeks ago. This could mean you have potential to grow, but could become a huge problem based on the audit investigation outcome.

    Salary seems high but this is standard level for couple years experience.

      In would focus on the base. At Symantec we have been getting a lot of RSUs not much in terms of pay raises.

      Last year everyone above D level got RSUs instead of a pay raise. I forgot what it was worth when I got it, but when the stock shot up to 30 dollars a share it was arround 60k in RSUs vesting in 3 years. Lost a lot when it dropped to 20 bucks.

    Is this SF or LA? For LA office that is good offer, if it's SF not so sure with the higher cost of living there. Recently Symantec been on a kick of giving us low or nonexistent pay raises and instead giving us RSUs. I would try negotiate a higher base because once you here your base will grow slowly with how things been going.
