Is it a good offer? Can I negotiate more?

What will be my TC like? Hows the target bonus and refreshers? Its not clear to me and I am afraid to ask the recruiter

    OP - I m in Finance and I had a comparable offer at Zillow. As a SDE (assuming thats your profile), you should definitely ask more in RSU. Congrats on the offer!

      I wish I had a number for you but I don't want to give you a random number for the sake of it. Check out levels.fyi and see if you can get an idea. Looks like there are enough SDEs who could also point you in the right direction or share their L63/ L64 offers. All I know is you could make much more than someone like me in finance

    Congrats on L64, but the offer for L64 is so weak.. but for 6 YOE getting L64 will be great for your career

      I think 300K TC + sign on should be reasonable. You’re around 252K + 60k sign on with that offer
      Nov 2
    • Amazon god
      OP
      How is it 252K? Can you provide a breakdown please?
      Nov 2
    • Redfin y0lo3
      180 + 27 (15% bonus) + 45 (180/4 for stock) = 252

      Amzn - your intel was last updated in 2016. Google is not paying these numbers anymore, they're lowbolling candidates unless you have very compeling counters. You're looking at 200k-400k now

    Stock can probably go higher. Have you got any competitive offer?

    I think it can go higher for sure. I know L63 who got hired recently at 185k/250k/80k
    Nov 3 1
    • Microsoft vtff
      Really? 185K for base is L65

    Your L64 offer was less what I was making as an L62 in the bay area. My comp was on the high side, due to out of band performance bonuses, but there's no way it should be more than L64 pay. In don't think this is a good offer. Ask msft to wait and go get a competitive offer.
