TC Evaluation - SDE 1.5 YOE - Bay Area

Hi guys, I am new to Blind and would love to get some ideas about my current TC.

I graduated last year with MS degree in CS and little work experience. I have joined Tesla for 1.5 YoE now. My current TC is 125K (110K base + 60K stock/4 + no sign-on bonus). I know that I am getting lowballed since after I signed Tesla offer, I also received Microsoft offer in Seattle with TC of 170K (120K base + 120K stock/4 + 40K sign-on bonus/2).

The question is how much I am getting lowballed compared to other companies in Bay Area. And if I jump ship now, how much could I reasonably expect at my level in Bay Area.

I made a mistake once, so hope don't do it again. I would appreciate any input. Thanks.

    Given that 1.5 years is just around the boundary for newgrad+1 levels.
    FAANGULTAD can offer upto 240k. Top companies will 200k+
