      Yes. Very much so.

      Yes, and they are also handing out new Teslas for everyone, so be sure to ask for that too.

      OP to be serious yes, you can get more at L3 for 3 yoe. It depends on many factors though, interview performance and negotiation (sadly).

    I like how the Googlers are sayings it’s a decent offer while the non-Googlers cry lowball.

    It is a low ball offer.. There is a huge supply of engineers for L3 level.. Everyone is literally leetcoding their ass off.. It is time to up your game, learn system design etc and level up to L4 or L5

    I feel this is a decent offer for L3. They may be able to bump up your GSUs by another 20K.

    Did they mention a sign on bonus?

      10k relocation

    • Apple / Eng possibly
      Relocation is just a standard benefit. You should mention that you want a sign on bonus. If necessary, explain that relocation is meant to cover for expenses that local candidates do not have.

    My offer was slightly lower in base and stock, but I had 0 YOE coming in and no CS degree. It seems pretty good for L3, towards the higher end

      How do you think your salary has progressed over the years? Does google give decent raises as you climb the ladder?

    Is that more than you make now? If so it's probably ok.

      You've got no bargaining power then. It's a good offer I'd say. Not the best for L3, but good enough.
