      Then it's not only weak, it's low ball

      But then he would have gotten sde1, not sde2 level

    Seems L4 to me, especially for Bay Area

    That's less than 160k in yr1. Pretty weak. I would ask for more sign-on, maybe base. Stocks don't come much into play until yr3

    I’m an L4 hired last year with 2 years of experience. Got 120, 50, 75 and 10k relocation.

    Your offer sounds like an L4

    Looks like an SDE I offer, and for a new grad SDE I is appropriate.

    How do you know it's L5? Sometimes college grads L4 offer even with lot of experience. Happens when their experience is not deemed equivalent to Amazon experience.

    Super low SDE2 (L5) especially for the Bay Area. You should aim for at least $200k TC. Preferably $220k-$240k though. COL is the Bay Area is really high.
