What’s senior computer scientist@Adobe equivalent in Google? I’m computer scientist 2 with 4.5 yoe at Adobe, wondering what level I should aim for at Google?

    You'll be slotted for L4 and down-leveled to L3 if you don't perform too well.

      To get a sense of the levels, when you join as a new grad with masters, what level are you at?

      So are you saying that with 4.5 years of experience, people still work at new grad level? That’s weird

      Yeah it is weird but true these days. Depending on your interview performance either L3 or L4

      What about people with 10 YOE. Hoping it is L5 ?

    • Vest you can always ask the recruiter to put you in L5 loop

      10 YOE is L5 slotting. Again this slotting also depends on where you worked before Google and what your level was there.

    L4 most likely, L5 if you do really well.

      5 is unlikely

    How often do people get promoted on an average? At Adobe, being at the same level as you joined, for 3+ years is unheard of.
