Bonus might be tough, they tend to plateau at higher levels. Base ask for 190k Stock looks low Sign on can be negged 70k+ Dm me

Hey! I’m also in the process of getting a call that will explain my offer. Would you happen to have any tips for me in negotiating?

- Base sounds about right for full remote, but you can push. - You can definitely get more stocks, especially with Microsoft at an all time high. College hires are getting $200K. So ask for $250K. - Annual Bonus is standard, and it is up to 30% but target is 15% - Sign on depends heavily on the org. If you are in Azure, you can either ask for all at once, so do 35K/2 which is better. Also try and start before March 31st, so you can qualify for bonus in Sept I came in as L63 last year, with 170base, 50K sign-on and 180K stocks.

It's not a bad offer, but like S1 said, there may be a little wiggle room on base salary. Good luck!

Not bad at all. What about other benefits?

This actually doesn't seem that bad to me. I'd take it!

@M2 just received a similar offer for Sales in the Azure group. I was under the impression that the fiscal year ends in June 30th, and to join before then. Also, does anyone know if the vacation is negotiable, or am I stuck at the 3 weeks standard?!

A1, can you explain the rational of joining before the end of a fiscal calendar (June)?

A1 - performance vs fiscal year differs. Also, unsure about the vacation. You can try
