At least it’s a house. $1.2M gets you a 2 bed apt in NYC...

This is pretty good. Base salaries are always low in these companies, the rsu’s are where the big money is at. You could get negotiate more stock/refresher options. Companies have way more wiggle room in stock than base salary

My friend got an offer for sr manager, san jose area, tech company, $220 base, he feels it’s low...

Thank you. Good luck!

Thank you for sharing OP. Curious - does total comp include bonus + equity or just cash bonus? If latter, really surprised legacy tech pay this much bonus (in terms of % of base). Good for you!

Equity plus bonus. About half and half

My company is bleeding talent! I took up a PM role 3 months ago at a not-so-hot smaller tech company. When I joined there were 8 PMs. Today, 6 of those have quit and 3 of those are in the past 3 weeks. We’ve hired 3 more since I joined. I haven’t built deep enough relationships here to probe about their reasons for leaving, but I’m really concerned. The company is undergoing many changing priorities and acquisitions in play which definitely could be why. What would you do in my shoes?
