Google Comp discussion

Does the comp discussion with HR come after you pass hiring committee? I have been through all interviews and even had a few team match discussions but no comp discussion whatsoever. Just wondering if that is normal at Google?

      This is org/team specific? I am guessing there are teams in Google where such doesn’t apply.

      In Microsoft, i felt I am stuck and can’t grow my skills, hence leaving soon for Netflix.

    Look up other threads on blind about recent offers from these companies. You may want to keep in mind the median or upper end of the range, once asked for your expected compensation.

    Competing offers can get u a lot of comp. Otherwise low-ball. What level u targeting?

    My recruiter asked about my expectations up front. Guess it just depends on the recruiter?

    Expect to get low ball offer if you don’t have competing offer

    OP
    I took it as Google is so confident about their comp and benefits that matching comp or even better comp than others is not something they worry about. I could be totally wrong.

    The fact that interview process is long and you go through so many loops with HC and VP approvals, one would assume that it’s better to discuss comp early so both sides don’t waste time and end up rejecting an low ball offer if an offer is given.

    If you have a competing offer with deadline, recruiter will be interested to some discussion, but otherwise no

    Same here ... in interview process ... not a word about comp ... seems risky for a big expectation disconnect for both sides
