Microsoft offer w/ 5,000 sign on bonus (un-taxed)
I have recently received an offer of a $5,000 sign-on bonus.
Microsoft takes care of the taxes for me.

Is this a reasonable sign-on bonus?
Other companies have received sign-on bonuses of $20,000., whereas Microsoft itself has offered a $40,000 sign-on bonus to PhD graduates.

Most of their benefits don't really pertain to me.
I would like to get an initial payout.

Can anyone give me any input?
