    The 1 year cliff kinda blows but it does seem like a good overall offer.

      Don't u think the RSU is low. It is 150K over 4 I.e. 37.5K per year. The cash component looks strong though.

      I personally wouldn’t take the offer but the base and bonus looks good. The RSUs do seem low but I am not sure how generous eBay is with annual refreshers. So 150k might just be a standard initial offer with good things to come after year one.

    Not an eng, biz side - base: 195k, bonus 30% annual; RSUs 200k over 4yrs after 1yr cliff, sign on of 50k all up front. Level 27. Where are you based? Regions will dictate cash/cost of living a lot of times. I’ve found the stock to feel like a second income if I liquidate regularly.
