Uber L4 Offer Evaluation

Amazon IIIIIllll
Jun 29 32 Comments

Recently received an L4 offer from Uber Seattle, wanted some feedback on the breakdown.

Base: 146000
Stock: 270000 (dollar value, RSUs to be determined on 30 day rolling average on start date)
Sign on Bonus: 25000
Target Annual Bonus: 15000

This puts me at a TC ~213500 ignoring bonuses. I wasn't really big on the idea that my TC drops so heavily after year one, and stock seems a little low. I'd have to give up interviews with Twitter, Dropbox, Redfin, and Cruise to take this. Wanted some feedback on the offer, thanks!

    A good offer for Seattle considering ur yoe. Unless you get a counter offer, negotiation could be tough

      My competing offers were slightly less. So, I didn't negotiate much but I got the hint that their offers are not very negotiable. I did request for a change of location and they were pretty prompt in finding another team. Original offer wasn't for seattle. I did take it!

    Update: Uber hit me up with the "We do not negotiate for the sake of fair pay."

    Didn't have time to complete on-sites before offer deadline, so calculating my tradeoffs right now.

      Stock prices could go down a lot, only base is valuable at that time.

      Probably depends on the team and recruiter. I interviewed on a Tuesday, heard back Friday evening.

    You got lowballed , at least 100K when adding the comp numbers. Please negotiate, it’s a good time to do so

    Seems like an average offer for Seattle. Uber is def better than the companies you’re interviewing at imo. Maybe try and use them to negotiate
