Why is Salesforce so stingy with RSUs?!

I make $200k cash + 15% bonus. Got 58k RSUs over 4 years. Just interviewed for a similar job at Airbnb and the salary was the same except $400k RSUs!

Salesforce seems horribly, horribly off market here.

I’m non-engineering GBO.

      ha ha, of course not but you’d take 15k a year liquid over 100k a year in Airbnb stock (which has a great chance of higher value post IPO)? Airbnb will go public, one day...

      Are you sure you'll be with Airbnb when that happens? All these RSUs may expire after you leave. Or can get dilluted.

      This is the right question. Airbnbs equity could be worth a lot more or zero.

      Not a great argument Vlad, Facebook and Google offer about the same in RSU

      400 to 600k RSU - L5

      Lmts maps to l4 usually. If you're really strong lmts then l5 is possible.
      Salesforce is still pretty stingy with rsu

    More like Airbnb is above market. Plus, private startups have to give more RSUs anyway to account for risk

    How do you decide on unit price. Company can over price from their end? You 400k might be 100k actually at ipo

    Generally companies that see high upside in stocks are stingy. It's a way of signalling.

    I don't see reasons why SF's growth rate would stall.

    I'm in the same boat, they're definitely penalizing loyalty. No point in continuing in Salesforce after 4 years unless there is some strong reason to stay back.
