Someone I know is expecting a level 62 Software Engineer. Can one expect to get similar comp to Core Product teams like Azure that I’m seeing here on Blind or do some teams have bigger budgets? How much stock and sign on to expect? No competing offers because they just started looking.

Update: $146k base, sign on and stock are so peanuts - you can’t even buy a base Honda Civic with the sign on. Did they do poorly in the interview? What should the candidate counter with?

    Competing offer matters. Also if it's azure more budget I think. I got good stock + sign on for 61

      I’m seeing folks here with over 100k sign on cash + bonus, looks like getting another offer is required?

      Show me how many people are getting 100k sign on. Other than Facebook. Even then, I don’t think Facebook does it anymore

    So do you think my friend should not even bother to negotiate with no other offers? Or ask for a little more?

      Should definitely ask for more. No harm in that
