If you stay at google for two years I bet you’d double what you’re making now and have recruiters all over the world dying for you to acknowledge them.

Would you be taking a pay cut ? If not, take the offer. The name has a lot of clout still.

Unless you have a big pay bump on the horizon, I’d take the role. I took a leap of faith and jumped under similar circumstances, and I’m happy that I did so. It’s a ultimately a mega Corp with 100kish employees but still manages to be a much more interesting job than consulting (for me).

100% take it. The lifetime uplift from Google Vs B4 on your CV should be very significant.

The best way I’ve found to value FAANG/Tech exit is to value your offer over 4-5 years (vesting period) vs your current comp/trajectory over the same time. Why I say 5 is because there’s the notion that your comp should double every 5 years in consulting. But we all know that’s not always the case especially if you’re homegrown.

No problem. Congrats on the offer!

I recommend joining the Navy instead

If you’re leaning nay, you probably know your answer already. Not worth taking an offer that you don’t whole heartedly believe in.

I received an offer from a quant fund. My offer letter doesn’t explicitly state my role/position, it is nyc based, and that it’s full time. It also doesn’t provide benefits breakdown, just a blanket statement that I’m eligible. I’ve spoken to the recruiter about these items, but general response is that this is standard for the company. To me this is all very strange and I feel it should be defined more. Does this sound normal to others? Can’t tell if i should push on this more or leave it.
