Got a verbal confirmation for an offer from recruiter. Now she is negotiating my pay with the compensation team instead of me. I thought I had to do the negotiations with that team? This is for a L3 role at google canada. To the fellow googlers, is this normal practice or am I being lowballed here?

I’d highly encourage you ask anyone you know in google to check the levelling for the role (if you didn’t before you interviewed). This is important as it determines how much you could potentially earn. I’d definitely not only push on base but if you have years of relevant experience, let the recruiter know you’re a higher level in your current org. Google recruiters love to low ball people when it comes to levelling

The recruiter is your advocate! They are also the middle man - They get your initial ask take it to the comp team. Comp team provides them the first offer to give you. You review and ask for more. They take your ask back to the comp team. This may iterate a few times or you may get “best and final” if they meet your ask. This is how it is for everyone, nobody that I know of ever talked to the comp team directly.

The whole structure is built around levels and every level is working with a band in terms of pay, they basically try to get a deal between you and the payroll team within that band.

Followed the same process as you heard. Have my expectations to the Rec who negotiated on my behalf.

What you’re referring to is when the rec doesn’t negotiate but just does a “back-and-forth” between you and the comp team. No candidate interacts directly w the comp team.

This is how it happened for me. You talk with her about expectations and she relays that with comp teams. I hope you were nice to her because they can champion you more or less

G1 thanks for quick response! Thank god I was super nice to her haha.
you’re working for Google Canada?

That’s usually how it works
