Uber PM compensation

Super quick: I got an offer from Uber in SPM 2 role.

But my total compensation blew me away (close to double my current salary).

My numbers: base = $200
Bonus = $50 k (mostly stock)
Equity : = $300 k (or thereabouts)

This is more than I am making now. However Uber equity is not liquid while my current compensation is liquid. How does this rate? Any other PMs at Uber want to weigh in? Any other PMs anywhere want to weigh in?

      Op are you a GPM at LinkedIn? That’s what typically maps to SPM 2 at Uber (you can check levels.fyi)

    Not sure if you accepted the offer but that’s pretty low. Especially in the base and no sign on bonus. Forget Uber.

    It is a really good offer. What does bonus "mostly stock" mean? What percentage? There are more new SPM2 hires who haven't managed teams in the past.

    24k RSUs sounds a lot! What's your current total comp?

    I assume you’re citing per year equity not over 4 years. If so, this is a strong offer. It’s 24k RSUs.

    What level are you at LinkedIn right now? The expectation for SPM 2 is for you to lead a PM team.

    How did you compute $300k? What is the valuation you are using?
    Which team?

    base is on the higher end, bonus is low, equity very low if it’s over 4 yrs

    Uber is a pretty safe bet to go public and 6 months later still have the stock value be at your value. If those are RSUs then don’t worry about the illiquidity cost. If those are options then you could some illiquidity tax (reduce the equity by some % to adjust - for uber maybe -5%, for companies 1-2 years from IPO maybe -10% —20%. If there’s another uber cover-up reveled then these numbers increase for you).

    If you like the folks you interviewed with and don’t mind the constant elevator rides then take the offer
