Is the Google brand on a resume + perks enough to go down a level from my current role and make 30k less base?

I read a lot on here on work-life balance and the different titles etc. but a lot of folks assume the offer is comparable or better, and mine is less.

You’re only looking at base, which is not the metric most folks in tech look at. Total comp (Base + Bonus + Equity) is the number we look at, which will most likely far exceed your current comp. Does it exceed your current comp?

I never work more than 40 (cloud)

You are at Dir now, if you are joining as L7 or 6, just beware that promotion to Dir (L8) here is extremely hard - it’s not simply a matter of time, you need that scope too to justify.

WLB and perks are super nice. I have a growing family and that’s exactly what I need. You also get stock refresh every year, and bonus almost almost exceed baseline. I joined when GOOG was around $1000, so that appreciation is nice.

I would say not more than 5-7% less in total comp. Work-life balance would most likely be better at Google given their employee wellbeing focus.
