      You just called it a very good offer wtf. Friend joined YouTube last yr with 2yoe for 190 and felt low balled. This is weak af for tier 1

    25k more from Austin is not even close for bay area cost of living. You need a minimum 40% hike dude to make a move

      Not really. Google knows that you’ll move for that unless you have other offers due to career and compensation growth at google vs intel

    This is definitely a lowball offer. L3 can be up to 280k in average for 4 years. With 4 yoe this TC is insulting. Ask signon bonus. Also don’t trust something like you can be L4 in 1 year. It’s hard now with new sustained perf process. And you are likely to be thrown to a shitty team because you are L3

      I asked for sign on and they said they can only move the money around from equity to sign on. 😐

    Thank you for the input everyone! I’ve decided to decline the offer and go with a startup.

      You may end up learning much more in 2y and go back to Google at L5 ;-)

    Really? I thought that’s a pretty low ball offer. A fair TC will Atleast be 225k.

    This is prolly good offer for L3. But not so good offer/level for 4 yoe. You may have/get better TC with other companies?

      Sort of. I have a startup offer. If I count the paper money, then the TC is more than this. But I’ve decided to go with it.

    This is an insulting offer. I know marketing reps in Google that make more.

    Edit: just saw that you declined the offer - well played!

    T3 with 4 yoe is not good. You will be joining at same level as new grads. Your COL is going to sky rocket.

    You should keep looking, since you passed google L3, you can probably get L4 equivalent at another company.
