Evaluate Tesla and Google offers

Apple / Eng RomEr
Apr 24, 2018 41 Comments

Company - Level/Base/Sign-on/RSU

Google - L4/$150K/$50K/$275K
Tesla - P3/$160K/$10K/$400K

Both offers are final, no room for any further negotiations.

Google has a guaranteed 15% target bonus each year, not sure about Tesla.

I know both offers are really good (as far as I am concerned) but I am really torn. Please advice which one would be best to chose given current market scenario and future prospects. Thanks in advance.

Edit 1: my total work ex is 7 years.

    With that offer, Tesla. Google had been saturated. You need luck to land on a good team. Culture across teams are wildly different

    What team at tesla? We don't have bonus afaik. There are no perks like free food etc, so you should factor that in when you calculate your take home. Pm me if you want to know more.

    Tesla. You get to play an outsized role in defining the future movement of humanity. Tesla is growing faster than Google.

      Even if they go bankcrupt you learned a lot. A failed company is better than coasting.

      What’s the point of learning if you’re not going to make money off of it?

      He did make money right since its public traded company. And money is not the only motive.

    My experience with Tesla has been great so far. Given your offers, I’d go with Tesla. I think you’ll find the work more meaningful. That said, experience can vary drastically between teams, and some roles are more stressful than others.
