    That's a solid L4 offer. Congrats! Just be sure to actually get promoted to L4 as early as possible so that your refreshers come in at L4 level as well.

      It's normal at Google if your experience was not at a top silicon valley company. They like to play it safe.

    Decent L4 offer. Then again with your experience they should have brought you as L4 anyways.

    Without role and level those numbers have no context.

    It sounds Ok but it would help if you shared the role and level.

    Great L3 offer overall.
    Your base is already at average L4
    Stocks are OK for L3
    Bonus and signon are great for compensating the stocks.

    Make sure you get to L4 in a year. Otherwise you'll lose out. Which isn't that hard. Just need to make it clear to your manager.
