Are Google Engg Prod SWEs the same as Google Product SWEs?
Recently, I interviewed with the Google Engineering Productivity team and got the offer for L5.
My questions are,
1. Are the Engg Prod SWEs considered the same as the Product team SWEs?
2. Are the compensation structure, in general, different between the Engg Prod SWEs and product SWEs? The initial offer seemed like a low ball offer. 160k/15% target bonus/250kRSUs(for 4 years). Is this because it is a Engg Prod role?
3. In the future, if I decide to move to a product team(same team/ different team), do I need to interview again?
4. In the future, If I decide to move to a different company, would it be difficult to be considered to Product development SWE roles?
