Is this a good Uber offer?

Oct 18, 2019 53 Comments

just got an offer from Uber for L5a
Base/rsu
195k/700k
With 20k sign on bonus. Have 6 yoe
I am still waiting on Airbnb and stripe. Should I just take this or wait on others?

Edit: I will wait after people are suggesting me to but I just wanted to know if this was good for a L5a. :-)

Edit 2: thank you for all the responses and suggestions. If my Uber recruiter were to read this post her eyes would bleed.
I got an offer from Airbnb and reject from stripe.
205/800 with 35k sign on.

I am going to take up Airbnb.

      From whom did u hear?
      Any company while laying off people will say we r done. If not, other employees would leave too.

      In my opinion, uber is going to layoff more people in next 6 months

    My spouse had exactly the same offer for 5a at Uber 6 month ago.
    Unfortunately, he got laid off.
    Even is you think that Uber won't do any more layoffs, think about attitude of your teammates. I doubt it's a fun place to work now.

    It's not worth it! The leadership and culture are both toxic. Attrition rate is very high. They hand out high offers because avg tenure is like 2yrs or less.

    800 over 4 years? That’s amazing. Can you talk more about what it takes to ace such a good offer? How was the interview?

      how many hours a day did it take you to do those 270 LC + system design over those 3 months approx?

      Also how many LC hards did you get in all your interviews

      OP
      I used to do 3 hours on weekdays and approximately 10 on weekends. I honestly felt all the coding questions were easy but the system design was hard. Yes I solved 270 in 3 months. As I said I didn't do a lot of hard.

    Reduce your RSU and ask for more signing bonus so if you get laid off you don’t have to pay it back

    Everyone here is afraid of taking risks. I'd say still wait for the other two so that you can negotiate. I'm actually joining uber freight and I'm more excited about the problem space than the potential risk

      I talked with several friends working at Uber, it just seems everything on blind is exaggerated. People at freight at least think the leaders are great. And team morals still seems decent at least with the friends i talked to. Anyways i could be wrong, ill find out in a couple months.

      You should totally join! They are always looking for new meat.

    Those numbers don't make sense if you get laid off within a year..
