    Really good offer 40k is max level for RSU so $160k seems like a lot for entry level

    Stock is really good, base could probably go a tad higher. Check levels.fyi.

    • It’s shitty regardless. Do Leetcode and interview at a better company. If you can’t focus join a study group like Heapclub

    Rsu seems high. I have heard VMware does not negotiate if you don’t have a counter offer.
