Are you truly at the HC stage?

It didn't speed the process for me, so I did exactly what you proposed and accepted the other offer then reneged when the Google offer came through (after negotiating higher comp obvi)

I work remotely for a series A start up, TC is about $115K + equity. I work approximately 30hrs a week in a busy week, only meet with my boss and team once a week. I just got an offer for $140K + 4X the amount of equity I currently have… however, not sure it’s worth letting go of the incredible freedom and work life balance I currently have. Any thoughts to help make the decision?
PS: I love our product, but not as passionate about the other startup

Congrats everyone! This week was terrible with omicron, schools closed, backlogged work from the holidays, general malaise from two years of a pandemic, etc. It might have been the most difficult week of my career so far. But, we made it. Kudos to everyone. Here’s hoping that next week is better.

Hi Googlers,
I had a question for you all. Do interviewers give their feedback and rating (or score) before your “package” being sent to HC? And if there is a bad or lower rating in one of your interview, does the “package” still get sent to HC knowing that it may not pass (60% possibility).
