    Congrats 🎊
    I would recommend OCI. Better pay, possible better work ? I also feel better chance of mobility to other cloud companies.

    230 / IC4 not a typo? Some IC3 got more than this. Current TC grant-value or current value?

      They mentioned it is IC4. I think they have made a low ball initial offer like most companies. I’m thinking of negotiating for more.

      Maybe it is IC2. I might have got confused. I will clarify with the hiring manager.

    OCI is a sinking ship, not sure about Yelp. You can move to OCI enjoy the comp and get out soon. Can't stay long < 3 yrs probably

      Thanks for your input :) Do you think I can negotiate for more money? Is 260K reasonable?

    Do you guys know what is the maximum I can negotiate for?

    I have also heard Yelp has one of the best cultures. Any thoughts on Yelp?

      Yelp has a really good engineering culture. Engineers can drive projects from the bottom up, ask questions and push back product/management and engage with fruitful conversations with leadership.

      Comp is tier 2,but wlb is very much encouraged. I have had managers come to me, and ask me to not slack or email on weekends.

    With 3.5 XP you should negotiate for IC3 and a pay bump. Yelp low balling you

      Thanks. Will do that. Do you have any suggestions on how to ask for a level up? Yelp has a 1 week deadline on my offer.

      They level you based on your interview performance. You should be able to compare your SDE level from Amazon to Yelp (levels.fyi) and say you were at a higher level (assuming you were SDE2 min)

    Is this total compensation really? It is lower than IC3

    • Amazon Kingsl@yer
      OP
      That’s the verbal offer I got. Does Amazon SDE2 map to Oracle IC4? Maybe I misheard IC2 as IC4?

      IC4 is principal software engineer. I don’t know what is IC2.

    OP
    Thanks guys. I have edited the post to indicate I need to clarify the position being offered at Oracle.

    Do you guys think 230K is reasonable at OCI for an Amazon SDE2 with 3.5 years of experience? Or is it possible to negotiate for more?

    Also, would love to hear insights about Yelp :)
