Visa to Microsoft

Visa / IT Sam90
Jun 5 9 Comments

I hope a master's degree And 4 yrs exp in Visa . My current base is 120k in Austin . I just got selected in Microsoft azure hiring event in Redmond. What package could I expect from Microsoft? I did a quick check of how 120 from Texas translates to Seattle and most forums said it translated to 160-170. I am still in the final rounds of interview with Amazon and indeed .
Should I ask for l63 or 62 ?
And i am thinking of asking for the below :
165k base
120k stocks
60k joining bonus .
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated

    Your expected comp is not going to be met at MS, unless you have a decent competing offer from Amazon. L62 with 4 yoe will also be difficult. L61 should be fine. You will have to negotiate for L62. No chance for L63.

      Stocks can be more. New grads L59 get 60K stocks easy.

      I know someone who was offered 30K for L61. Microsoft is known for low-balling if you don't have competing offer.

      They seem to lowball industry hires the most. Most new grads w/o competing get 50-60K

    L62- 225k

    Most probably even if they slot you as L62 they'll offer lower band

    With that YOE, you will most likely be offered L61. The max I heard for L61 is 230K TC with 135K base.
