Hello All,

Context -
I am currently a director of engineering.
There is a chance that I join google as L5 Technical program manager. Key reason to join is – Significant TC increase.

Question –
After I am in google, after a year or so, if I want to interview for Engineering manager role, do I need to be L6?
OR
One can interview for engineering manager at L5 ?

TC and YOE -
11 years of experience. TC - ~200K USD

    From TPM to EM? Doesn’t really happen at Google. You normally go from Engineer to EM.

      What if you have engineering experience in the past ? And can leverage that to get EM role in the future ?

      Thank you all for your comment

      Can you provide more details on blockers which prevent TPM from interviewing for EM roles ?
