Offered DCT 2 position in Northern VA.

Base: $60,000
Equity: $48,000
Yearly Bonus: ~$9,000
Sign On: $11,000

this is after negotiations, which will be a loss of $18,000 from my current base pay.

Will the paycut be worthwhile to get into Google?

I also would like to know more about the equity.

    Take the hit for a year or two for the experience, connections and resume.

    Equity will vest over 4 years and is like cash

    I work with some HWOps techs. There is good upward mobility. I know several L5s who got started in HWOps. I recommend taking the cut.

    Also, you will be near a regular Google office as well for other perks, in Reston and in DC

      Totally depends on location. Usually bands are quite wide

    Getting Google may be worth the hit for longer term goals
