    I got an offer from Perception team last year. Overall I liked the team; I am located in Bay Area, so most of the interviews were over video conference as they were in Pittsburgh. Mike Happold was the head of Perception team then and I had enjoyable interview/conversation with him.

    My offer in Bay Area was: Base - 215K, Cash Bonus: 20%. As far as equity, they give Argo Incentive Units which is a bit hard to interpret. They told me that if company valuation is $8 billion, then your equity will be $2 million. At that time they didn’t have any valuation, so it was even harder to make any sense of how much the equity is worth. Last time I heard, I think Argo was valued at $4 billion. Never worked there, so don’t have any insider information.
