Would it make sense to wait for a promotion next year from Strategy Manager to Senior Manager before applying to Google with 12 YOE or Google doesn’t really bother about external titles? Want to consider L6/L7roles if possible but not sure if I should wait and if my aspirations are unrealistic.

How confident are u of getting the promotion? Google doesn’t look at the external titles as much, and typically slots you in based on your experience and performance during the interviews. Also, you would rather apply and get a foot in the door, then continue growing, rather than being stuck on levels. Irrespective of the level you join at, you will be promoted if you display the required skills.

OP - I didn't wait for my senior manager promotion given the current environment. I felt I had more control being in the system than leaving getting an opportunity again a year down the line. Just a perspective.

Thanks EY1- that makes lot of sense. On your question about promotion- yes, probability is high.

I would wait - get promoted and wait for headcount to improve at Google. You're pretty close to getting L6 in a year or two. So might as well get your promo and come in direct at L6 instead.

Think about your overall resume too. If you don’t plan on being at Google forever, it’s nice to have good titles on your resume. It may not matter as much in tech, but it shows a level of seniority and experience overall. That said, if you’re ready to leave, don’t let the title hold you up.

In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!

Company is owned by Fortune 500 company and has over $250 m in revenue. Also what could I expect to be included in the package? I’ll be a individual contributor.

Would you ever ask an interviewer “what do you consider my weaknesses as a potential candidate?” Or something of that nature? I’ve been advised to ask it before and am curious. Of course this will be an opportunity to “defend” yourself or highlight your strengths, or propose what you’re doing to improve in those areas. Interested in some other perspective as I have a final interview later this week
