Gabriel relocation package Lump sump 8k vs Core policy ($2300 cash + Temp housing 45days + rental car for 45days)

Relocating from India to Bay Area.
Please provide your suggestions.

Asking behalf of my friend.

Edit: Flight + excess baggage upto $300 + airport tranfers covered in both policies.

    They extend 45 days till the time shipment arrives and hence goes upto 60 to 75 days. Do the maths basis house rental. 300 for flight is wrong information posted here - there is actually no cap on flight and they give you options. 300 is for luggage

      Oh I didn’t know about sea shipment. Thanks for the info. I guess lump sum is way to go in my friend case. Also one more question if you don’t mind. How do you rate following compensation base 136k , no bonus and <20 RSUs for L5 in Bay Area for international transfer?

      Salary depends on the job function totally. It's a very wide range depending on that. Rest assured compensation is derived systemically taking all factors such as job function, current compensation, country index etc. and for internal transfer is usually non negotiable.

      $300 is cap for excess baggage and flight and baggage is covered in both policies. So still the winner is lump sum policy.

    8k seems super low. Friends at Microsoft who moved to Redmond got excess of 20k.

    I’d rather take the policy in this case. At least there’s housing and a car.

      Yes it is relatively low. I guess there is no scope of negotiations at this time. Rental car is of no use becoz he doesn’t drive.

      If he also has a place to crash, like someone in Seattle who’d check out a flat/help with acco, then he should cash out.

      Btw - is this amount pre or post tax?

      Post tax.
      If he has place to crash and he doesn’t drive. Lump sum is good option I feel as well.

    Also you get taxi charges if you do not opt for rental which is some 1000 total for 30 days last I recall
