      Why ? Uber doesn’t negotiate anymore ?

      Seems so from the post. What’s your point ?

      No. This is pretty much top L5a offer in bay area. Didn't know Seattle salaries we're the same

      Sign on should be negotiable I guess. What’s the annual equity refresher at Uber ?

    It seems the IPO price would be $44-$50. So you are not expecting a bump due to IPO. Keep this in mind.

      You mean this offer isn’t good enough ?

      No. What I meant is Uber recruiters typically talk about IPO riches and how stock is going to go through the roof. Just wanted to let you know that stock will be listed around the same price as today and has a potential to go down like Lyft. So keep that buffer in mind before finalizing.

    What is your severance package, looks like the stock component is heavy, what happens when someone is let go?

      Yes, but generally is that backed by the employment contract?

    • Google praise
      Yes. Many do have. But you can check case by case basis. I don't know if there is something that is mandatory

      Did you have an offer for L5a position? If you simply search, you will see this is way higher than a standard offer.

      I got almost the same offer, I know someone got 800k RSU for L5a

    Does Uber negotiate? My Uber recruiter wasn’t willing to negotiate. It was a take it or leave it scenario.

      The recruiter was already negotiating when that was said.

    Irrelevant but because no one has this yet - how many LC questions did you solve before the interview?
