Input On My LinkedIn Offer [New Grad]

Nov 25, 2019 5 Comments

Just got an offer from LinkedIn [Bay Area] to join as a SWE. Recent college graduate with 1.5 internship SWE y.o.e and 1.5 full time SWE y.o.e (half pre-grad half post grad). Whether you think internship experience is relevant or not is up to you.

Job Offer:

TC: ~190k

Base: 132k
Bonus: 10%
RSU: 180k (4 year)
Sign-On: 10k

Not trying to humble brag or show off. I'm very fortunate for such an offer. Just want to see what you guys think and where/what I may be able to realistically improve in negotiations.

I was thinking Sign-On and Base could be improved from what I've seen, though I'm not aware on the benefit of asking for more RSU's vs Base comp, nor do I know a reasonable Sign-On increase. No competing offers to barter, unfortunately.

    I think this is solid. I think salary is solid, stock is solid, I have seen higher sign-ons. I would think if you got 20k more stock, and like 50k total sign on, it would be an amazing offer. But it's a pretty solid offer already imo.

    I would say base is ok for new grad. I would ask 200k RSU and 20k sign on. I don't think they would go higher than that for sign on, but for RSU yes.
