I wanted to join a FAANG company with a better package but I already have an offer from a firm with somewhat good package and I have been unable to get into FAANG after good efforts too , what should I do , should I go ahead with this other firm (and then keep trying FAANG) or should I wait to absolutely get into FAANG, it would be odd if I make it to FAANG after 3-4 months of joining another firm and then leave it.Please advise.

Hi Fishes

I gave google silicon interview all 4 rounds 3+ months back, from then they are saying they want to hire me but headcount approval is not yet received.
Last week they said, lets go for one more round and finalize immediately. That interview also went very good.
Post that they didn't call back itself, they have stopped responding also.

Has anybody faced this issue? This I feel completely unprofessional and not really expected from Google.
