Uber vs DiDi offer

Jun 14, 2018 20 Comments

I have offers for both companies.

I have 6 years of experience.

DiDi compensation is as follows:
Base: 165k
Bonus: 27k
RSUs: 6000 ($50 per unit on most recent valuation) over 4 years, 1 year cliff
TC: 267K

Uber, will make the offer as Software Engineer II, but they haven't given me the numbers yet.

How much can I expect from Uber?

Also the recruiter said that Uber doesn't negotiate. Is it true?

Does anybody here has any experience in any of this companies?

    Dont go for DiDi unless you are from China. It would be hard to survive.

      @CapJerk Why are you skeptical? @8u76gt Why would it be difficult to survive? I assume that if you are not chinese would be difficult to move up the ladder or maybe they will benefit their own people?

  • Oracle Oh well!
    Didi’s work and culture is pretty rough. I’d recommend you to keep interviewing.

    What is the strike price of the options should you want to exercise? Does didi offer cashless exercise if you decide to leave and have vested some stocks already?

      I think that’s a good offer. I don’t know much about didi, but good luck

    I've seen people on here talk about negotiating with Uber, myself included. So that's probably not true.

      My recruiter last month said the same thing. No negotiation even though I had competing offers.

    Didi has reduced the RSUs of late, probably because they are getting closer to IPO
