Google offered me a base not much higher than my current and 150 in equity. Would have to move sf area so wanted a higher raise to adjust for cost of living. Will try to negotiate but hear they...

^^Yeah, because $5K base will make a difference in the Bay Area 🙄 This is terrible advice - equity is so much more valuable than a meager base pay increase.

Won’t budge unless there’s a competing offer which I don’t have. Any thoughts? Also on track to make manager this year so would be losing on that promotion title and pay bump. But maybe having the google brand on my resume will make up for it

You can always just say you have a competing offer. It’s really not that hard, you don’t even have to tell them from who just tell them the made up amount you want to be making. But before that just tell them you want more. People are so scared of negotiating for no reason. They already want you. Ball is in your court no one pulls their offer because you ask for more money. Have confidence

Equity is so much more valuable long term than meagre 10-15k extra cash long term. IMO 100k cash plus 200k bonus is better than 150k cash plus 150k equity, that's how I think. You don't need to worry about savings if equity component is high enough, no matter how low the cash salary unless it is too low .

Agree with M1...you may be losing cash but you are gaining equity in a company that is still growing. Going to be worth more than 150k once you become vested

like

Equity is refreshed once a year based on performance. As you climb, it becomes a larger proportion of your total comp here and there’s no negotiating it. Your 150k is offer is similar to the one I took three years ago (~$40k/year when spread over 4 years). This year my annual refresh was $92.5k.* *I got promoted and transferred to the PM ladder, both being opportunities that are difficult to obtain if you don’t already work for Google

On a separate point, do your research before going - it’s a super solid brand obviously but known to be a very political place which may or may not work for you. Good luck!

See if you can trade in equity for more cash comp even if it means lower overall comp (I.e., 140 equity for $5k extra base)
