    My offer for Staff Engineer was 140 max 100k stocks, they don’t match or increase or anything. Their sellout point was to join the mission. You can get 30% off lease on a Tesla.

      5 years ago?
      We hire good “junior” (2y exp) people in autopilot with this base, and more RSU...

      Amazon is right. This is what I was offered and I had competing offers. And mine was late summer last year.

      I doubt that was for staff then, or it was not software engineer. Maybe HW or QA?
      This is lower than the all the senior people I know that join over the last year

    How do they get quality candidates then? People will leave often in case they get offer elsewhere

      Exactly.
      My friend joined Tesla and is dying to get out of there. The issue is that there is so much work so it doesn't leave any free time to prepare for interviews.

      The average Tesla tenure is around 2 years

      Yup, sounds about right.
      When they stop drinking the cool aid and realize that their perf reviews doesn't mean squat as pay raise is not going to be significant compared to their market value, people start leaving.

      That's the thing: on average Tesla doesn't get many true quality candidates.

      Autopilot is pretty decent in some areas but the firmware org is way below industry average on quality of people (on average, there are exceptions in both places).

      100% agreed ^

    Pay will be shit. Go to a FAANG.

      I don’t get it. Are people mostly lowballed or are they not getting any meaningful refreshers / raises? I’m relatively new but I know people in my org that got substantial refreshers to keep TC competitive.

      That's just not true. Senior only gets 50k stock over 4 years. Is that significant in your opinion?

      Raise/bonus are individual: if you get 12k per year you not in the high performers...

    Get a FAANG offer and they’ll at least match.

      Upto 250/300k

      That’s a random upper bound that doesn’t exist in reality, based on my experience.

    OP
    Is 155K base/180K rsu better at Tesla for senior software engineer?

      180k for 4 years would be 45k per year. 200k Tc looks good

    My friend was offered 135k base / 175k rsu.
