Got an offer from Google today (San Bruno location)
3.5 years of industry experience
SWE L3 level
15-25% annual bonus
160K stocks (vesting over 4 years)
15K joining bonus
It is near my current compensation of 145K base (TC 200K)
I have a competing verbal offer from a public company (for 300K TC) but Google is not considering it since it seems high to them and they need an offer letter. No way for me to convince them since the company won't give an offer letter unless I verbally agree to them.
Does this seem reasonable? I personally felt it is lower than my expectations since it is not even meeting my current compensation.
You have to look out for yourself.
