Declined Google offer but changed mind

I received a new grad Google offer a few months ago, but turned it down. I heard the HC results are valid for a year and am now thinking of changing my mind.

However, when I received the offer last time, I negotiated the TC to be higher using competing offers. If I want to go back, will I get to keep that negotiated TC or will it revert back to the original offer numbers?

Also I heard L3 headcount is really tight right now so I might be too late ☹️

      People from Google are saying differently though. It's not guaranteed but it's not a lost cause

      Ask yourself this. What do you have to lose right now by emailing the recruiter? I would go for it even if there is a tiny sliver of a chance (even if it is less than 1%). What if you are part of that 1%? No regrets for later in life.

      14 likes doesn’t mean you are right. Most people haven’t tried reaching out after declining or have come across such cases and don’t know what the result of such a renegotiation will be. So most of those 14 people are just imagining.

    If you are only leaving for comp and so concerned then I wouldn’t want to hire you. Google dodged a bullet imo

      That’s why you don’t have hiring powers.

      Lol at the Deloitte guy issuing threats. These fb/google guys are making multiples of your tc. Why in the world would they even apply to Deloitte for a job?

      Lesser of the 2 evils. FB is pure evil. Only here for money. When that TC drops, I bet FB will be a ghost town

    Best way to find out is to reach out to your recruiter. Google doesn't hold grudges against past employees who left in good standing or those who rejected an offer. Headcount may be a valid reason though. Only one way to find out.

      Good to know, thanks. Any idea what happens to the comp I negotiated last time? Would it reset to the original un-negotiated numbers?

      I'll definitely reach out to my recruiter if I end up deciding to do this, but I'd prefer not to ask until I know for sure that I want to go back and this detail is important in deciding that.

      Yeah that may depend on whether the new offer was in writing, how long ago this was, what new skills you've gained since. You're better off presenting new evidence proving you are now worth more than when you got the offer. For example current TC. Don't make it about the old renegotiated offer
