Did I get lowballed?

Yoe: 3

Offer: base 110k, stocks 20k/yr, bonus 16k
No signing bonus

Edit: consensus seems to be that I got dicked. Did I miss out on 30k or 60k each year? Or worse?

    Take it or leave it. There’s plenty of people more talented than you trying to get into google. Once you are in, mobility is one of the benefits

      Google claims Irvine pay == Mountain View pay, so use MTV comps.

    It’s below average, but not by that much. In general I think socal gets 10-15% less than MTV. You can push back, but probably won’t get more than 5% increase without a competing.

    People on Blind pretend Google is past it’s prime, but even 1 year here will get you a phone screen or direct to onsite with 99% of companies. That’s worth something

    The offer is not worse than what Bloomberg offers fresh grads.
    Take it, going for 2-3 years and propel yourself into a better gig if your comp is not adjusted appropriately.

    That is extremely low. Thank goodness I didn’t interview for the Irvine office.

    Go interview for Credit Karma, we will pay more.

    However I think Google will help progress your salary quicker long term.

    I heard they didn’t have headcount for L3/4 in SoCal area. Were they able to match you
    To a team there?
