Base: 145k
Stocks: 300k
Sign on: 60k
15% yearly bonus

YOE: ~3

Is there room for more stocks?, this is final according to recruiter. L4 is not possible but recruiter told me I got good rating by HC.

Also what are typical refreshers for new L3?

      250k is not much in the bay.

      People always say that on Blind but it’s not true. It’s only not a lot in the rich parts of the bay

      Rich part? Is Milpitas rich part? A shitty house costs ~1mil there.

      250k gives you 13k a month take home. 20% down on a million dollar home at today’s rates is around 4k a month for the mortgage

      And 1 million won’t buy you an amazing house in Milpitas, but it’ll be far from shitty. Renovated single family homes and new constructions are in that range

      Iam study from EPI and CTCi, do you think they are enough for google? Did graph and DP questions were tough ? Any object oriented design questions?

      OP
      No they are good starters but not enough. They were not tough pretty standard. No object oriented design.

      Is there a way to push for L4? I don’t feel strongly about L3 but comp is good.

    Wow I should tell the recruiter to rescind the offer because of your greedy

      They just matched my competitive offer. It’s not greed, just checking.

      Of course, it is not greed. Because people don't negotiate well, these companies get away with paying shit money to some hires. On average, this decreases the market value of all SWEs.

      Yeah hard negotiation is needed these days specially with Google.

    I got slightly more for L4 after one round of negotiation but in Europe with almost 8 YOE.

    I would say, dont complain, but you can always negotiate.
