Have offers for a UX Designer position. Both companies are in my top-companies list and teams are great. They both have similar promotion cycles and growth.

Looking for feedback on just the compensation aspect, assuming all other factors are equivalent.

LinkedIn: Base - 135k, 250k RSU (over 4 years) and 10% annual bonus + joining bonus 10k

Twilio: Base -130k, 300k RSU (over 4 years), no annual bonus, no joining bonus

Current TC: 180K
YOE: 3.5

  • This is good base for non senior roles. Most ppl here are comparing against Eng salary buy design is generally a little lower.

    LinkedIn goes up to 221K. Twilio goes upto 205K. Pretty good base given the YOE.

    Linkedin bonus always pays more than 100% unless you are doing not so well (then itโ€™s a performance plan in place for you)

    No experience with the Twilio team, I like the Linkedin team better ๐Ÿ˜›

      Refreshers are pretty consistent for top performers.

    • Thanks @haverford. Are refreshers based on % of tc or part of manager/team discretionary fund?

      Not manager/team discretion for sure. They make sure all employees at same level who are performing well are at same stock level across the board.

    Seems decent, the base is a bit low but the RSU looks good. Is the company public?

      What is a decent base for 3.5 YOE? Both companies are saying that this is the highest for this band and increasing base will be possible only if i had an offer for Sr UX.

      Actually, itโ€™s probably fair with your YOE. I was just looking at level.fyi, looks like a L3/L4 comp. If you like the team, you should consider taking it. Which team did you like the most?

      Since you prefer Linkedin and they pay better, you should go with them. Congrats!

    Arenโ€™t product designers usually paid similarly to software engineers? Given your YOE seems lowball.

      Right, itโ€™s typically similar to Product managers / SE salary
