Got an offer from Google for SWE position in SF.

I'm not a CS Major, came from Biology Major and worked 3.5 years in Pharma Industry.

What are your thoughts on this? Is it good for entry position and my 'experience' level?

I currently make 90k as a Lab Information Management Systems (LIMS) Integrator at KPMG and live at home in San Diego.

      OP
      It was 2 phone interviews and then 4 on-site interviews.

      There was a lot of coding involved, but I got through it.

      I spent a lot of time on LeetCode and CTCI, but I think the most important thing was to keep calm, speak about my thoughts, approach, and logic, and present the solution in an eloquent manner.

    Sounds like standard new grad offer from last year.

      Standard new grad was 135 gsu if I'm not mistaken

      You’re right, which at grant price was around $110k.

      Was, stock is above 1000 now so it looks like OP got 110 shares

      Which makes sense. They fix the price not the number of shares.

    Isn’t this low for a new grad offer? New grads here are getting 160K total comp. Bay Area.

      Hm, I already tried negotiating, but I couldn't get an increase.

      What should I be looking at for a good range?

    What language did you use? Good work with the transition.

      OP
      I used Java as most LIMS systems utilize it.

    My friend got 112 / 15 / 100. He negotiated up to 116 / 25 / 135 with MSFT offer. It'll be hard to get Google to budge without a top tier offer, and if they do, it'll probably be on RSUs.

      That’s a good offer. Unless you mean 100/4 or 135/4
      Apr 8, 2018
    • Niantic / Eng rayquaza
      Yes it's over 4, which is still a decent offer. If it wasn't, it'd be ridiculous. To clarify, this is a new grad offer.

      Okay yeah the latter was more of the range I was seeing. It’s probably because OP had no competing offer and he also doesn’t have a CS background
