FYI - I had my sign-on approved but it was basically to cover the sign-on I’ll have to pay back to my exiting firm.

Google down levels people a lot…. Best case you are looking at l5-6

like

It was painfully slow

Bonus is standard btw and has company/individual performance multiplier. For reference during my tenure as L4/L5, I received between 17-22% depending of my ratings L4/L5: 15% L6: 20%

like

Also, LA is one market down than Bay Area/NY. So like 10% less

Congrats! Keep in mind the number of RSUs you’ll eventually get will depend on average daily price of GOOGL stock during your first month at work. So, look at the total equity $$ right now, and you’ll know Number of RSUs later, unless you’ve already joined and have got the allotment

Pretty sure base is too high… what are you being leveled as?

like

Is this what you’re asking for or their initial offer? If the former - this is much too high for an L4, but would be closer for an L5. Base and equity are still too high though even for L5. I also keep hearing there’s very few sign on bonuses lately. Always ask but keep it in mind.

like

It depends what the level is, hard to answer without that knowledge. I would revise down but always ask for more than you expect to get of course.

Should know about level this week, but for 14 YoE L4 seems a bit low right?
