How is this offer ? This is the one I got after saying I have a competing offer.

Recruiter keeps saying that compensation is tied to the level and canโ€™t be changed. Any room for negotiation?

  • You just have 2 years experience. Are you expecting $1M? They already paying you too much.

      Guys, donโ€™t be too jealous. I have a friend who got a $1m for 2 yrs exp.

      So, stop judging someone with yoe and I believe it boils to how worthy you are to the company.

      ^^if you have special skills that should get you more money than others, then mention it while asking for opinion on comp.

      Without that, you are just a new grad trying to move from Walmart to Uber.

      Why would I be jealous?

    • @ OP, tell recruiter about your friend to make your package at least $500 K
      Dec 10, 2018
  • Good offer. Keep in mind that 290k has potential to become 600k. See you at Uber lounge ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      How can you GENERALIZE it? And you think? You could not think if the offer is good enough for you and could not make a decision but now you think and have made your mind that girls like me like being called as โ€œdudeโ€!

    That $40 valuation is inflated and generally given at 1.5x value. Itโ€™s a very strange (and legal) tactic that Uber uses. Ask your recruiter to clarify the actual current valuation. I did and my TC dropped substantially.

      $40 eval maps to $70 billion of uber eval, seems reasonable to be.

      Uber changed their practices after Dara took over. Their offer in the last year or so have all been true 409A common share price

    It looks pretty good to me. Is the equity over 4 years?

    If you want more comp, get a competing offer from a company that pays similarly. Otherwise, you have no leg to stand on in your negotiation.

    My offer from uber last month with 2yoe was
    151k base
    9500 stock units
    50k sign on
    Same equity refresh and yearly bonus as you

    I had a competing offer from Airbnb which was considerably better. So here I am ๐Ÿ˜

    My offer with 2.5 YOE:
    147k base, ~7,800 shares = 320k, 25k sign on

    I also had competing offers, which is how I got the sign on added.
