I’ve only ever worked at KPMG so looking for help understanding tech compensation packages. Since all I’ve known is base salary + annual performance bonus, I know what base to target but have no idea how to evaluate TC/ how to weigh base with sign-on bonuses that are paid monthly, RSUs, etc. Can anyone explain fairly simply? Thanks:)

Base + Bonus + (RSUs / vesting period ) = TC

RSU's should be added to base - they are typically a guaranteed amount (plus/minus any stock price movement). Signing bonus should be to make up for any bonus/vesting you will miss out on by switching jobs - I wouldn't add this to base/bonus calculations

Gotcha, thank you!

Hi all,

I have cleared all the interviews for Walmart Global Tech and salary negotiations are also done.

Am I getting rejected or is it normal to be on hold without any update for a month at this stage?

One of the major reasons for switch is because the current work is corely focused on execution based tasks and very less on strategy and optimisations. #paidmedia#ppc @groupm @dentsu @publicis @accenture
