This is in the top quartile for a 3.5 year post-MBA exit in tech in the Bay Area. Like the poster above said, try to push for closer to 400 if you can. That’s slightly higher than what Google pays for L6 strategy exits, but if you get the offer they’ll likely match or get close (if they consider the T2 firm real competition).

Also the base is very high loaded for your offer, Google and many other tech companies will load more in RSU. But base is always better than rsu!

Update: Negotiated to get higher RSU, got additional 100K RSU and bump to 395K first year TC. Thanks all for the advice.

Congrats!

r u not counting ur rsus in tc? cuz the offer seems like it’s better than u say

like

oh ok makes sense. that sounds kinda light on the rsus relative to the rest of the comp but maybe that’s just how they do it. if ur trying to negotiate this is where i’d focus.

I guess you‘re currently around 300k? So that would give you a good increase. Of course, yearly increases afterwards will be slower, but if you think it‘s a cool role go for it (can always come back). The Google role might be even more attractive in the long run, so I‘d say try and see. Negotiation potential probably around 400k. Main lever I guess RSU

270k base is very difficult to beat regardless of the level or position. Congrats! Very curious which T2 tech firm gives so much base at the director level

Very solid. Congrats!

Had a meeting with the client on Friday. It was me, my M, and two people from the client. We’ve been working with them for 6 mo, have met in person, and have good casual relationship. When signing into the meeting, I entered my name as “Santa Claus”. No real reason why, thought it would be a little fun before going out for Xmas holiday. The clients got a laugh and made some jokes about it. My manger was not amused by this and gave me lecture on professionalism. Was it really that bad/ big deal?
