    Check out Netflix after a few years if you want to get a sense of top of market for video engineering. It’s far above that offer once you have a few years under your belt and a PhD.

      Yes, many of us that have been here for more than 5 years are multimillionaires.

    Not bad offer for a PhD. Is the 160 the signing bonus?

    This is a good offer. However keep in mind video engineering doesn’t have work life balance. You run 24/7.

      oops.. thanks for letting me know. Do u see a room for negotiation?

      Not at all. Pretty much everybody runs like that... some of the main managers keep sending emails very late at night and on weekends and people generally work for very long hours and have deadlines every week.

  • Super solid offer. Not sure there’s much for improvement without a competing offer though.

    Getting a competing offer is the way to go. If nothing else ask them about sign on bonus flexibility and make sure to reiterate you’re very happy to get an offer.
