Got an offer from Uber for Global Strategy Manager position

- Base $136k
- Cash $22.5k
- Equity refresher $45j
- Equity Grant 4yr vest: 4384 RSUs @ $42.52 = $186k

Is this competitive?

Leaving a strategy consulting role currently paying ~$230k annually. Know there will be a salary dip leaving a consulting firm, but want to know if there is opportunity to negotiate a stronger package from Uber. If yes, where would negotiation be most likely?

For reference, I have 6 YOE + an MBA from a top 5 business school (2 additional years in school)

    Mainly life style. Life in consulting is routinely 65-70 hours per week

  • Seems really low and I’m also shocked they won’t at least match your current total comp. $230k with bonus and stock is not a stretch.

      It struck me as low as well, but want to know if there is room to negotiate.

      They told me the offer is non-negotiable but I'm not sure how much of that is lip service vs a serious claim

      It’s a very small pay cut, pay per hour will be up 30-40%.

    If it’s the right level for the role with growth opportunities, I’d say go for it!
    Pay cut would be worth getting the Uber branding and associated growth.

  • If you want out of LEK and like the team, you can always take it and leave in a year. The Uber brand will be good.

    Why would you take a pay cut? Unless things are desperate, you can continue at the current company till someone is willing give you as much or more than what you make now.

      She had 4 yoe and was able to negotiate around 15% higher im sure you can try to push for 10-20k more

      Wouldn't that be an argument for them to say the comp is already competitive? Essentially argue the value of the shares they are offering me have increased?

      Not sure I follow why this would help in negotiations
