I am a HW Architect with 10 YOE (Grade 8) currently being interviewed for a similar position at NVIDIA.
What TC (Base + Stocks + etc.) should I expect?
- Nvidia sickmyduckBe prepared to be lowballed when coming from non US location (esp. India)
The money looks like a lot on paper and if you are going to be in the Bay area it won't go too far
Try to have multiple offers to negotiate. Nvidia will give you a high base 210K+
Stocks....well....if you're tracking the market, you know the story. I would ask for that money in cash paid per year as anniversary bonus. Def. Ask for sign on bonus even if they say they can't, they always can. You can negotiate for base close to 250K and stocks around 150K
