      No, I am asking for suggestion. As I have no idea about the comp range.

      What’s the point of bragging anonymously, duh..

      WTF is wrong with you guys, Always trying to infer the negative meaning.

      I am seeking advice on the offer so that I can negotiate better. If you don’t like it gtfo, rather than posting BS comments.

      Why don’t you see it in the other way: it gives data point to others about the market

      If you feel bad, go interview, work hard and bump your TC

      There are definitely humblebrag posts on blind and this really isn't one of them.

    Seems a bit on the low side. The base seems a bit too low. You could probably bump it up by another 100k. Also Sign on bonus of 50k. Wtf gives anything less than 200k sign on? Negotiate a bit harder. At your xp level I wouldn’t settle for anything less than 540k.

    Pretty close to the FB E5 offer, with much lesser stress (from what I hear)

    Did you have a competing offer?

    I recently got an offer for L5 in the Seattle Google office. I was previously at a Google at L4 for several years with high ratings (they gave a counteroffer when I quit to try to get me to stay). My offer was approximately:

    Total yoe:9

    Base: 170k
    Sign on: 0k
    RSU: 525k
    Annual bonus: 15% of base

    So per year TC: right around 300k

    Current TC: 380k

    Mine felt like a super-lowball offer. But I didn’t have a competing offer and the recruiter told me Google didn’t care about my current TC. (This offer was after negotiation; they offered like $280k TC at first, which was like a joke since it was off by $100k). Super weird. What a waste of time that interview process was! Obviously I’m sticking with my $380k job. Maybe I’ll apply again for an L6 position in the future so I’d actually have a chance at a TC increase. (I’m at another big tech company, just posting with my old Google Blind acct.)

    Anyway yes I think you should take it since you didn’t get the lowball offer I did, but it doesn’t hurt to negotiate for more!

      L4 can get higher than that. You can definitely beat it with L5 offer. Try to walk away and see if they reconnect

      My L4 offer was higher than this, but i had competing offers, as recommended by everyone on Blind

      I did walk away; I guess the competing offer thing is a hard requirement. Dumb.

    Did you get vp approval?
    I got a google pm offer for l5 with rsu at $600k and had to get vp approval for it🤯 (which took more than a week).

    looks like the band for product is indeed much lower.

      Do you mind sharing your base and joining?

      Every single offer goes through VP approval

    No competing offer? Facebook employees get more on Google offers? I though Facebook was at the higher range of pay.

      I have been at FB for past 4.5 years, hence got TC drop even after DE.

      FB E5 offer might beat this G offer. But I cannot interview at FB while being at FB 😂
