compensation decline at Amazon? Refresh policy?
It seems like Amazon does not pay an annual bonus only a signing bonus that lasts 2 years from the date of hire. After the 2 year mark it looks like all income is either Salary or RSU. I know most here include signing bonus as part of their TC but i prefer to leave it out as it is one time in nature. RSU at many firms, due to generous annual refresh policies, is more reliable and therefore i am comfortable including that in my estimated TC.
What is the refresh policy at Amazon? The concern i have with joining is once the signing bonus runs out you are left with 2 years of the back loaded RSU package (40%/40% i think it is) and unless there are some good refreshers its likely that TC will decline after those 2 back loaded years end.
How generous is amazon at refreshing?
