Help eval my Uber PM offer.

Jun 5, 2018 26 Comments

Getting 165k base and 400k grant with 100k refreshers at 409a. I have +5 yrs of relevant work exp. It seems a little low overall, but recruiter is pressing that the stocks will see massive growth very soon.

Is it overall strong? Are internal people very bullish on stocks? Thanks in advance.

      +1. I am mostly looking at base to support my family while equity as long term growth.
      I should get promoted at FB in this or next cycle, but TC bump internally isn't that great.

      Or get promoted at Uber. Probably one more cycle than at FB.

    I think the $165k is low. The rest is great! I assume this is pm, not Sr. Pm.

      Recruiter said that cash portions are hard to move, but he will try to get me another 10k on base.

      Your call. It's a competitive firm to get into. You are compensated well at $165 imo. I personally would not push it. Might push you out of the offer.

  • Surprised to see the reactions to this. That seems low for an L4 PM at Lyft, although I'm L5 and maybe the gap between levels is bigger than I thought.

    Since I know I'll be asked: 195k, 700k in equity over 4 years

    Very bullish internally. I know many folks who are not selling at the latest tender of 40. And the internal evaluation is 33!

    That base is not bad at all considering its a PM role!

    It sounds like an excellent offer for a PM! I’m an L4 engineer and my TC is less than yours on base, equity and refresher. Kinda bummed that PMs are making more than engineers at a FANGU 🤨

      So sad. Only at Uber.

      That doesn't seem right. Engs at FB make more than PMs. :(

  • What is the level? I would do interview at Lyft as well

      Just PM, not Sr. Pm. I was told it's high end of pm1

      So what did you end up negotiating your offer up to? And what level? PM 1 or PM 2?

    This is an excellent offer for L4. That means total stock is $400K initial grant and an additional $100K in refreshers per year ?

      I rounded down the numbers a little bit, but the 100k refreshers are spread over 3 years.
      So at the end of each year, my stocks will be:
      And so on.

    It seems a bit low for non public company. Just for clarification, you are getting 400k worth of stock at current or vested price?

      At 409a price. So current.
