Feedback on Google India

Got an offer as T5 engineer in Google India, currently working as SDE3 in Amazon Blr team. Have an offer from a team in AWS Seattle (cleared the interviews for internal transfer but offer letter pending). Just wanted to gather some feedback on Google India, how are the teams and work here so that I can evaluate whether to join Google India or move to AWS Seattle.

PS: Money is not the reason for US movement (as Google offered a pretty good deal), only thing is quality of work and opportunities in Google India against AWS Seattle.

      Personally Google is a much better company than Amazon. I cannot work under a frugal environment.

      Just I am bit worried about kind of projects and opportunities in Google India (what I heard is most of the good work is still in Mountain View), can you shed some light on same

      I have not worked in Google India office. But what is important for you? TC, WLB, projects or growth opportunities? Let say your proposition is correct, where will you be joining then?

      Is 1.2cr TC standard for a T5 in India? Could you share breakdown

      Fuck that is incredible TC for Goog.

      OP I know this is not what you’re asking for but if you chose to move to the US, know that your 171k in India will go so much further than your 300k in the US.

      There are so many more negatives to moving here (and an equal or probably slightly greater number of positives), so think it through really hard before moving.

      1.2 does seem too high for l5 though

      171k in India goes much further than 300k in the US for sure, but if you look at the absolute magnitude of savings, it will still be much higher in the US.

    Join google dude. And help the forum by sharing your TC.

    Further, internal transfer to US on L1 visa is not good for Indians as there is no easy path for greencard and to switch to H1b you need to win a lottery.

    I have Google and Amazon friends who have moved and then realize they are low balled and have very limited job mobility

      Please note L5 at Google == L6 at Amazon. Also, just to put a context (if it helps) I was in L6 role in Amazon for about 2 years

    Personally, I would take the Google offer. I am working in the US. 300k will look like a big TC until you land here and start getting mired in real estate market in the West Coast, immigration stuff, being away from family/friends, etc. Not sure how much of this is applicable to you though.
