      Important to clarify that this is for base salary, not total comp

      Base salary cap - not in bay area!

      Bay/NYC should be 10% more

      They have a $185k base cap for sde3 in the Bay Area the last time I spoke with a recruiter.

      That turned out to be an awesome policy for me. Because of that cap I got a lot more stock and that stock has been a rocket ever since.

      It depends; if you are willing to live with the skewed vesting schedule, then yes.

      What's skewed? I got cash in lieu of the stock for the first two years and when the stock started vesting I was getting way more cash in my pocket than I expected when I joined. Talk all you want about skewed, I can see what arrives in my bank.

      Well the data there lags behind quite a bit. For amazon, it says 218k for senior swe which seems much lower than market. Is this representative of Amazon comp?

      That still seems reasonably accurate for the targeted comp. People are making more because of vested RSUs and the huge hike in stock value

    Current New grads offer is 145 TC
    Sde 2 TC ranges from 170-230
    Sde 3 TC ranges from 250-350
    Principal TC ranges from 400-600
    There's 2 more levels after that (senior principal and distinguished) but I haven't heard much data on those (I did see one vp (same level as distinguished) claim 4 million one year which I can actually see with our insane stock growth).

    Do performance based rsu grants have the same non linear vesting schedule? Or is it even?

      Usually.. when the stocks r doing so well, you don’t get much base increase during promo. Or so I heard

      Absolutely correct.

    Base + signing bonus (usually first two years) + RSUs = TC.

    The RSUs have a nonlinear vesting schedule over four years, but the signing bonus is used to smooth it out.
