Hey googlers, I got an offer for L4 in S&O team and have the option to locate to Redwood City or NYC. My team is split across both the locations but mostly in redwood. Would you have a preference for location? Redwood seems to be really expensive but think would have more networking opportunities if I would ever like to switch teams. Thoughts?

It really depends what you’re looking for. I personally would never move to the Bay Area, because I hate the traffic and the thought of sitting in that daily stresses me out. I would only move there if I lived and worked in SF. It will however probably offer more flexibility moving forward if you want to switch teams. NYC is also growing, it’s over 12k maybe? though it’ll never be as big as Bay Area. I love living here.

Thank you, G3! Can I please dm you to get additional information?

NYC is the right move. It’s by no means a satellite office - there are something like 10,000 Googlers across 2 campuses there. Many people in the Bay Area are trying actively to transfer to that office and struggling because of the competition for open roles there.

I think the networking aspect at Redwood would probably be better especially if you think you’d like to move around, just my opinion though. Gotta do what you think will make you happy

I see plenty of people go for a walk during the day, yet I hardly see any of my EY teammates appear “away” for 15/20+ minutes. I recognize that not everyone is in consulting, but can’t imagine that *none* of those walking are. Asking as a relative newcomer to the workforce: Is it acceptable to be away from work for more than just a few minutes, regardless of industry? If so, how can I feel comfortable stepping away to prioritize my health and well-being when so few of my teammates do so?

This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)
