I was at a big 4 and as an SC I got 160k base, got around 18% performance bonus but I was definitely at the top end.

For Google, there’s discretion used by managers to potentially make your 15% bonus more like 18% or so. I got 18% last year and got like 19% this year. I have more RSUs than you because I’m an L5 but I’m now at 90k appreciated RSUs per year. There’s no way a B4’s comp rises faster than the stock growth.

Hey there OP, here are some questions:

1) Have you had an opportunity to reflect on near term objectives that support your long term personal strategy? Is it to be Work Optional by a certain year? Is it to do ______ work that interests you more? Do you feel like you just want a change due to current stress (what is that change and what's driving it)? etc. If purely financial, make sure to include RSU, perks, etc.

2) You mentioned WLB in the comments. What is each personal hour worth to you? We intuit that lack of personal time discounts the pay we receive. Consider you work the same hours in consulting (55+ hours is normal and Sunday is basically low key my Monday) - how much would you need to work the same hours? Also keep in mind consulting is relationship driven to find projects and staying billable is important so you don't get let go for being underutilized and let go.

Assuming WFH, what benefits are there at Google that other jobs don't have? (besides looking awesome on a resume).

$10k sign on feels low especially for a M…most are offering between 15-30k depending on offering and yoe. See if you can up it.

And WLB and expectations in consulting is high. I’d say stick with G. The espp or your rsu is way more valuable.
