I interviewed with google for L4 but looks like i didnt do good enogh, so HC cleared me for L3. Still in team matching. But due to this stupid h1b no PP shit, if i'm not able to get matched with the team before end of this week, i'm considering asking for a non US location => probably India(i know pay is not as good as here but being closer to parents and gf would make up for it.. can get laid anytime instead of getting DHS's permission every 6 months 😂).. im mentally prepared to sell my car and takeoff asap. Cant take this stress anymore ..

Question is, does google entertain any of this ? Similar question for FB. Info might be useful as im yet to interview there. Ive not yet asked the recruiter about this. But if anybody has any suggestions/pointers, id appreciate it.

    Yes, any location works. I interviewed at India and have been team matching from Zurich, London etc

      I guess I am at L4. I am in team matching phase before HC. My recruiter told me that i have good performance(he didn’t reveal actual numbers), but there is no team hiring in London(according to his words). After 2 days i got one call from some Android team which is very far from my interests. Now my recruiter insists on Zurich where i am going to have a call with hiring manager.

      Is it because my score is somehow low?

      No, your score might be good, but there aren't many open positions in London. Go to Zurich which has almost 1.5x compensation

      How much yoe do you have? I heard Zurich requires 3yoe for visas.

      Also, did you apply for London/EU directly or applied for India and then asked your recruiter?

      Did you get any teams in Zurich?

    My advice, negotiate US joining stocks and join in India. You will live like a king at L3 also probably earning more than L4s

      Is that possible? Isn’t the comp based on location?

      Everything is possible. It all depends on circumstances and how baldy they want you.

    Yup. You can say you would prefer India or any other location for that sake.
