    Ask yourself a simple question. Does your TC make you happy? Will more TC make you happier? People here on blind post their high TC but forget to mention the cost. The long hours at work, the high expectations, and the severe stress. Dont buy into this crap. Make a decision based on your own needs and what you expect out of your life.

      This is an excellent offer for a P5. Even for a P6 a base of 230k is considered high at VMware. Your bonus as P5 is 20% so you should get 46k not 40.

      60k for 1 yr, so 240 rsu is over 4 yr. I saw posts that VMware doesn't do much on annual rsu refresher.

    good offer take it.17 yoe is not a plus for it world, as u are old and slow..
    6-8 years is the prime time.

    In FANG 330 TC is like median for 6-8yoe. So I'd leet more and up your tier.

      Man don’t think I negotiate to that level from this offer. So for this YoE what is considered good market value - $500k TC with around 350k base?

      500k tc sounds fair. 350 base sounds high.
