    Damn, Google really does like downleveling and lowballing these days.

    How was your interview experience? I have similar experience and I will be interviewing soon.

      OP
      I had 5 rounds of technical interviews. Difficulty would be mostly LC medium. My interviewers were great and very helpful.

    Too low. Have you looked at the rents in these areas?

      OP
      Yeah I have. And that's what concerns me, the cost of living is almost 1.5 times than where I live.

    Honestly its not bad for L3 @ 187k TC not include sign on

    But with ms and yoe you could push for more and try to be firm. Wish you the best of luck I took a similar offer with 5 yoe at tier 3-4 companies. Their initial offer had 100k rsu grant. Come on I was devastated on the phone when recruiter said that

    I think it’s a quite standard L3 offer from G nowadays. They just downed the TC A LOT. Of course, the range of L3 TC is very large, but not everyone can get the high end of the range.

    Did you apply for the university grad position or just software engineer in general?

  • You will be poorer than on the east coast (except if you live in Manhatten). Ask for 10% more TC or you stay on East coast.
