    Look for salaries on Glassdoor. Then tell a number that is little higher than average salary on Glassdoor.
    You can ask them to increase the bonus as their is no relocation bonus.

    Also I would suggest to move into SW asap unless you really like this crap (hw and analog design)

    Leetcode and get out. Most of us experienced folks are stuck, you got 1 or 2 more years. Keep leetcoding and get the hell out.

    Ask for more base. But otherwise it's ok.

      110-115 is a good figure to ask. But you need competing offers regardless.

      Unless your research work is directly correlated or you have data from levels.fyi seeing what other Qualcomm offers are and inflation is around 2% if you're comparing 2018 salary numbers of 2017 numbers.

    40k/3yr RSUs, do you mean 40k over 3 years or per year for next 3 years ?

    No, thesis is not a negotiation asset. Assuming your research was in analog design, the thesis is probably the initial reason you were actually considered. So more of a baseline requirement than a plus. When I interview grad students for IC design, I have never referred someone who is just doing coursework — not necessarily because of being non-thesis, but rather because they don’t show the same level of experience and confidence with design.
