    $61k base seems low. Location?

      Mountain View. It’s basically a new grad position so i wasn’t expecting anything crazy

    The question you should be figuring out is which city you can afford to live in?

      Yeah everyone kinda assumes you’re in engineering unless you state otherwise. Good comp IMO.

    What year was this offer made?

  • Base too low. 7 years ago I started in non Eng role with 62k base. I would think it should be a tad higher now. Ask for a few thousand more.

    Fucking terrible. Come over to MS and we can assuredly pay you at least double base - especially in sales

      You're saying MS pays more than 160k TC for new grad in sales?
      Apr 21
    • Facebookbfcc
      Either way, 120k base for new grad sales associate...maybe I gotta make a switch lol.

      120k base isn’t unreasonable for new grad working in Azure sales. TC probably north of 160

      @bfcc you in sales at Facebook?
      Apr 21
    • Facebookbfcc
      Nope. In recruiting. Was thinking about sales recently. 160k sounds like mid level performers, I'm sure there are good amount can reach it, doubtful that's the average new grad hire, I could be wrong.

      @bfcc were you looking at the client solutions manager or client partner role at fb?
      Apr 21
    • Facebookbfcc
      Looked at them before. The partner role looks senior, the solutions manager role might fit if someone's willing to take a chance with transferable skills instead of direct experience.

    It's an hourly position so you can put in OT and make a lot more money
    Apr 211
    • Oracle / SaleshughefOP
      Yeah the recruiter actually said the exact same thing. I was trying to push for $65k base but he said $61k was the absolute max but I could make more through OT and exceeding my target goals

  • Since it’s a sales role, perhaps try to negotiate a 3-6 month relaxed period where your targets aren’t required to be met. Also sign on seems low for sure - especially if you’re transplanting to this area. That’s like 4K after taxes, and so basically 1 month’s rent in MV. Ask for at least three month’s worth of signing bonus.

    Also I’m sure you did your research but ask things like how often the team hits their targets, what the territory is, etc.

    If you trust in the products you’re selling, then up the variable portion higher (40-50%, you’re young, risk it up). Since I think googlers in general get a 15% bonus, 30% doesn’t seem that high for the risk you’re taking in a sales role.

    Stock is over 4 years? Or 38k/year? So your TC is about 120 if you count your stocks. Meh, still low for new grads but if you like the role, sales role growth is obviously good and very translatable to every other company. Of course, if the TC can be closer to 140 with your sales activities then it would be a wonderful start to your career!

      Trust me, absolutely no negotiation on when OP will be put on target and bonus percentage.
      Apr 21
    • Oracle / SaleshughefOP
      Yeah he said there was very little wiggle room in terms of negotiation. I probably could have pushed for a bit more but hindsight is 20/20

    I had seven offer back then and I got 250k around

    Is this Google Marketing Solutions?

    Avoid. They'll likely push this role into a remote office long term.

    Such as the Austin or Colorado office
    Apr 212
    • Oracle / SaleshughefOP
      I actually originally applied for the Colorado office for a similar role. The recruiter asked if I’d rather work in this role in MV and I jumped on the opportunity. That being said, I would rather work in Venice/LA if given the choice
      Apr 21
    • GoogleAnonazn
      There's a LA office that you can transfer to in a year.

    Is this an ISR role? If so then I wouldn't take it unless you are in the Austin office
