1.5 years experience at Amazon.
Indeed (Austin): Senior software engineer
13% (15k) avg yearly performance bonus
10k anniversary bonus after 1st and 2nd year
10k sign on
Microsoft (Bellevue): SDE II (L61)
10% (13k) average performance bonus
20k sign on
Worth noting that MSFT has much better 401k matching.
It'd be nice to stay in Austin but I'm a little worried about salary/career growth.
How am I doing Blind?
1. Performance bonus is 10% at meets rating (most common). The recruiter tell you this fake number of 13%.
2. They don't have stock. They give you LTIP that payout in cash after about 3 years. No guaranteed value on it. If company grows revenue and profit at 50% yoy for 3 years, you might get $2.35 per ltip.
3. No guaranteed yearly hikes or salary adjustments
