Uber refreshers

I got a positive feedback after interview and taking about TC structure, recruiter mentioned they don’t give any number for refreshers after IPO.

I have FB offer and refreshers mentioned is around 120k for E5. TC ~425k

YOE : 9

I would be offered 5a at Uber but not sure how to compare it with FB offer having no idea about Uber refreshers.

Could someone who got an offer from Uber recently (after IPO) share their experience regarding refreshers? Did recruiter give you any numbers for refreshers? What would be an average refreshers for 5a?

Thank you

    ill try to give you figures from last year refreshers. so target was 12k for L4 and 30k for L5. it might be 1k+/-. Stock refresh target was 60k for L4 and 120K for L5 afaik. I don't remember exact figures.

    Now based on your performance, you get anywhere from 0 - 2x of these cash and stock bonus. Most of the folks lie in 0.8 - 1.4 range. If you did something exceptional you might get 1.5+x of your target cash and stock bonus.

    As far as L5a ot L5b is concerned, your leveling is largely based on your performance in the interview and not based on your current yeo.

    You should try for 5b at Uber. 9 YOE makes you eligible to be considered.

      So you work harder and get paid less. Not a good deal to me

    Refreshers are now off limits. They don’t even show the target to existing employees anymore

      Hello...I read in another blind post that it's more like 30% or so less than new hire grant and vests monthly over 3 years? Do the refreshers start vesting immediately from month 1?

      OP
      Thanks, is there any range? Or it’s going to be totally random? This makes it difficult to compare and negotiate TC with other competing offers

      @ubercoming, it helps to think about why they would do this. Now that they’re public, they’re under more scrutiny by the market especially since they’re still under loss, promising refreshers up front is not prudent if they’re not sure how the upcoming quarters are going to be received by the market. The board has to generate more RSUs which in turn dilutes existing stock, if they want to give our refreshers. Cash bonuses are direct dependent on profits of the company usually, you can see why both of these can be hard to come for the time being..

      Also when do they vest?

      1/48th every month over 4 year vesting period

      Ok, and it starts immediately or after a year or so? New hire stocks starts vesting monthly after a year.

      It starts immediately after it’s granted. Its granted in March every year when Year End perf reviews, bonus, etc are delivered.
      You need to be employed by Dec. at the very latest, i believe, to be eligible for the for the refresher in march.
      Ex. If you were hired Nov.2018, you would have received your first refresher in march 2019.
      So your refresher would actually start to vest before your new hire rsu’s.

    Yeah, the recruiter told me it depends on performance and they don't give out numbers. Will be joining as L4 though. What's your yoe?
