I have an offer from Google for L3 SWE, 2.8 YOE:
Sign on: 30k
Total: 222.5k per year +30k sign on bonus.
The recruiter said he could restructure the offer so that I could get more stocks instead of base etc but the total comp wouldn't change... Any suggestions on what the ideal structure could be? I remember reading on blind that having more initial stock grant is beneficial as the managers don't see initial stock grant but can see base salary during yearly salary increase. I have a competing offer from another company at same TC 222.5.
