Working as Amazon L5 past 1.5 years.
YoE - 3 years
TC - 38lakh

Have offers from SumoLogic for SDE2 and Google L3.
SumoLogic TC - 48lakh (35-base, bonus-7, stocks-6/yr)

Google - 43 (22-base, bonus - 15%, stocks- 17/yr)
Team I matched to is Google store (they're starting new business vertical out of BLR office).

Do you think going to Google would be good idea, considering I've been down-levelled to L3 (was considered for L4).

How much should I expect as compensation from Google.

    You should continue interviewing in other faagmul. Sumologic ipo is not certain given the economic situation. So the 10 lakh of stocks may take a long time to materialize if it happens indeed. Google L3 is a non starter. If you have come this far you can do better in subsequent tries.

    What's the price that recruiter is claiming for stocks ? Though the stock is not 0 as Google might consider it may not be as high as 10L.

      From TC perspective SumoLogic might be a no brainier . Also you will get promoted to SSE1 in 1 year further boosting your comp . From the work perspective then that's another story .

      Still Google L3 is a joke . I would personally not take a down level and low comp to go anywhere whether be it Google or FB but then YMMV

    Sumologic can't do for your resume what Google can. Just another thought.
