I have got an offer from Flipkart with below pay as a SDE3
Variable: 6.75L (15% of base)
Stocks: 30L (Over 4 years, 25% every year)
Joining Bonus: 6L
Currently working at Amazon as SDE-2 with below pay
Stocks: 14 (Approx 18L in a year)
I also applied for Google and cleared telephonic round and have been invited for onsite. The recruiter told me they are considering me for L4 (I have 7 years of experience) and L5 is out of the picture. I was just wondering if it is even worth trying for? Will I be downlevelled as L4? Will they be able to beat my current comp at Flipkart?
It perfectly computes. (Amazon starts at L4 and Google starts at L3).
If you aren’t L6 at Amazon, there’s no chance you’d perform at Google L5. And Google usually underlevels. I know a lot of L6 from Amazon and L63 from Microsoft who have joined Google at L4.
And anyway Google’s L4 will easily beat your Flipkart offer - I don’t see what’s the problem in giving an onsite.
