Anyone have experience with a Base + RSU only offer from AWS? The base very small, with a 2 year “cash sign on” that brings TC back up to a reasonable level. But after 2 years, your RSUs are fully vested, and TC = Base + RSUs. No additional detail is provided on the value of the RSUs… except for a “Target Total Comp”. Thoughts on this setup?

That’s how Amazon does things. Everyone gets an offer like that whether it’s new grad or senior manager/director.

This is a typical offer at Amazon and AWS. How many RSUs are you given and what’s the proportion of that versus Y1 and Y2 Base + Bonus?

Thanks. Y1 vs Y2 split has not been discussed. What questions should I be asking, as I am unfamiliar with this type of comp structure?

I recently moved to the US for work.

I’m confused because I’m from a “wealthy” European country, based on public information I make more than 2x his salary… is it the case that Americans assume everyone dreams about becoming American, regardless of their circumstances? And should i be offended...?

My boss loves to have every warm body possible in pitch meetings, even people who aren’t working on it. He will slack you out of the blue and expect you to drop everything to just sit there and make the team look “impressive.” Why are people like this? Don’t clients see right through it? Is it actually impressive to have 10+ people in the room if only half of them participate? 😑 it’s such a waste of everyone’s time.
