      If Glassdoor data is accurate then 250 TC isn't the norm at Workday. Their tech isn't all that interesting either.

      250 TC is good for 5+ years and far more common than you think. Don’t go blowing sunshine up everyone’s ass that it’s shit and we all deserve lambos. Lol.

    Linkedin is pretty decent without the pressure of being in a FAANG.

    LinkedIn. Offers are comparable to FAANG. Bonus and yearly refreshers aren’t that good unless you are a top performer.

    Roku. They pay wayyy too good. Had an offer from them almost 40% above my total comp at Google

      Intuit yes. eBay must’ve not liked you much or you got an offer for a role they didn’t really value

    Oracle being very generous for new grad positions

    • Oracle / Eng Sjhcgua
      I agree staying at oracle too long will harm your resume, but lots of my collegues jump to F/G after 1-2 years got T4/E4 with nice TC (250-300). Which is pretty nice TC for new grad with this much exp

      $250k tc is normal for any engineer w 1-2 yrs that passes the interview at FAANG. Maybe Oracle gave you the knowledge to pass but the comp they gave you had nothing to do with your offer. Congrats on getting out though.
      Mar 25, 2018
    • Oracle / Eng Sjhcgua
      I agree. My point is company does not matter as long as you leetcode well. And oracle offer pretty good comp for new grad to start with. Not trying to say oracle is a good company, but I would take the 40k higher comp and jump to FG after one year.

      @Oracle in your first reply you made it sound like the oracle tag name makes it easier to get fang or higher salary. This is total bs. No one gives a shit if you work at Oracle. You got into fang on your own merit. I wonder if oracle badge can even get you into oracle stadium on discount!

      But the TC needs to be high (or there needs to be some ESPP), or there's no reason to work there, you can just buy NVDA with your higher TC from other company

      Nvidia doesn’t give much stock as part of compensation.

      I have heard Nvidia pays good. Do you care to share your role and TC qwerk?
      Mar 25, 2018
    • Nvidia qwerk
      Definitely not true that nvidia pays well unless you are comparing with HW companies. TC in the past year was competitive only due to the stock price + ESPP price lock so it’s not a good metric. But refreshers in general are very low.

      They give stock equivalent in cash based on GM’s stock price.

    Yelp pays pretty well. They have yearly refreshers. RSUs vest evenly and quarterly (25% each year for 4 years). Got an offer ~230-245 TC w/ 4+ years.
