Uber India SDE2 Offer | Low ball???

Amazon day_zero_0
Apr 24 36 Comments

All numbers in Lakh Rs. (INR)

Base: 30
Fixed Annual Bonus: 4
Fixed Joining Bonus: 5
Other Fixed Random Benefits: 0.90
Stocks: 50 for 4 years (25% each each)

Flexible Annual Bonus: 0-4
Flexible Annual Stocks Grant (Equity Refresher): Some value but not clear.

Thus total TC for 1st year: 52.5 fixed to max 58-60

1. Shouldn't the above TC be more than 65 as per recent trend?
2. Am I going for a definite cliff in 2nd year itself?

    Not a low ball.

    My offer was this last year -
    36 base
    5 joining bonus
    80000$ stocks/4 years
    10% target performance bonus

    Refresher target of 17.83 lacs

    Pretty sure this is the maxed out comp at L4.
    Not even sure where you heard 65 lol.

    Also, mate you have 4 yoe. Why would you even think 50+ lacs is a lowball? Kids these days 🤦‍♂️

      Thanks @woodkid, this helps :)
      I just thought it is low ball compared to other offers of Uber but now I am aligned with the parameter of YOE which recruiter as well mentioned.

      Apple offer was slightly better than Uber. 40 base, similar stocks and joining bonus.

      Picked Apple mostly coz of the inclination towards ML focused work

    Here's mine, all figures in lakhs
    32 Base excluding employer's pf
    3.7 (performance)
    5 (Joining)
    Stocks 50
    YOE - 6
    Refresher 17.16 which will be paid in 3 years.
    I didn't get any flexible annual bonus sort off thing.
    My current is same as yours :)
    Hope this helps.

    Move to Seattle if you can within Amazon. In Uber, you can relocate after 2 years of joining. This is irrelevant to this question.

    There will not be any cliff for you in 2nd year. Your equity refresher will be increased by 5L to compensate for your joining bonus. In 3rd, equity refresher will be increased by 5L further.

      @gokukameha: What is that 17.16? I didn't understand
      Apr 26
    • Amazon DragoonEt
      Uber gives two things as part of variable pay
      1. Variable pay in cash (0-20%)
      2. Shares worth X amount which will vest in next 3 years. (33.34% each year)

      That 17.16 is the second part. So at the end of first year, I will get this amount worth of shares. These shares will be getting vested in next 3 years as mentioned above.
      This amount of equity will be offered every year over and above new hire grand.

      I was told that 17.16 number cannot be told before joining!

      I had got offer last year. That time it was allowed to tell I think.
      I had got around 1780+ units which translated to 50 LPA. Referring to another answer in this post, looks like they have changed the offer structure now.

      Dah! Yes obviously. Amazon is giving nothing. Plus even among orgs, my org is giving way too less compensation.

    • Amazon noobNoo
      Not thinking about changing the org or moving to Seattle. But the compensation will remain if you change within Amazon India. Go ahead with your move :)

      New org will also be an experiment. Then why not experiment outside. At least I might be at a place where everyone is not pretending to fake 14 LPs :) just too much talk at Amazon now-a-days n less actual Tech.

      Can't go Seattle currently. Plus I feel I am done with Amazon, need to know how things work outside. May be I will come back :)

    • Amazon noobNoo
      Makes sense :)
      All the very best. Uber's IPO might or might not be working so it's a risk. But as they are giving it for against an amount, you can always sell it at the time of vesting. (If they allow) ;-)
