I got an offer from Amazon (AWS) for SDE L5 position:
Sign up y1 69k
Sign up y2 53k
RSU 177k in current price
Based in Seattle/Bellevue
How much could I negotiate from here?
20 YoE (I know, it sounds a lot, but I'm less than 6 months in US and my current TC is ~112 including relocation expenses which I'll have to repay once accepting the offer. Any thoughts?
- New makehappenfriends of mine got ~200k TC(SF) offers just fresh out of college. Your offer sounds like mid L4 band
- Microsoft / Eng dUKM75Have seen many L5 offers on blind around 270 280 290 and even 1 at 300k.
- I have made L5 offers that are outside the L5 band, hr calls it’s exceptions. The HM needs to go to compensation and define the reasons for exception and get it approved by your direct L8.
What is sad for these folks is that the reason for exception better be that they are on a quick path to the next level. Because if they are not, they will be scratching their head why they don’t get an increase in base or stock at review time.Nov 24, 2019 0
