Have an offer for google and salesforce. Salesforce being a TC of almost 60k higher (when comparing an equal vesting of four years). I think I might reject google though it's been my dream since forever.

If I reject google will that hurt my chances in the future? Am I making a mistake?

Take the role you vibe well with, enjoy the potential work, and see the most growth opportunities for.
Google is great but don’t put it on a pedestal. There are tons of good companies outside of Google. Don’t pick it just because of a dream. Dreams can change.

True I think I will be going with salesforce but I do hope to try again in a few years!

I came from Salesforce and now work at Google. The teams and vibes at Salesforce may be better but the expectations and pressure to succeed is way higher. There are a lot of politics at Salesforce when it comes to promotions vs at Google it's truly based on your value. I would suggest reconsidering as I have had 8+ people from Salesforce reach out to me wanting to come to Google over the past month. Lastly, I've made a lot more money at Google as Salesforce's OTE isn't entirely true as it depends on the territory you support and not all territories are created equal. Salesforce is a loooot easier to get into compared to Google. Their interview process is a lot easier and Google's is a lot more competitive

Have you compared the growth rate of each company's stock - Salesforce has grown 9% this year. Google is up 56%.

Equity growth is a huge part of your total comp

Also does Salesforce offer equity refreshes on a year basis?

like

Just wanted to point out the fact that there are no stock refreshers in Salesforce whereas you’d be making close to 50k in additional stock grants as an L3.

60k a year is 240k over 4 years…. That’s a sizeable amount to leave on table for Google brand name.

I would pick salesforce in this case.

Is it 60k higher a year or 60k over the 4 years?

That's very true! Google was a dream job for a while but I can always try in a few years again

Have you asked Google to match the competing offer? Should be doable unless you're at the max of your band for the offer.

Dont take the offer if you're at the top end of L3. You'll run into a wall with hikes over the next 2-3 years.

Can you share the specific breakdown for both companies? Google offers ywarly stock refreshes after your first year so my conp more than doubled since I joined 4 years ago. I question your calculation… You might end up picking an option for the wrong reasons…

What’s the role?

First, it’s hard to believe Salesforce TC for same level can be higher than Google. Second, $60K per year higher? I call BS.

So my boyfriend is going to be moving to Seattle to start a new job (great opportunity for him) however, I really want to move to SF (has been my dream for as long as I can remember). He promises only 2 years in Seattle, but I have other friends moving to SF now and I’m starting to feel depressed about this situation. We are in a serious relationship and have been together for about 2 years. How do I deal with not being able to move to my dream city for another 2 years?
