I’m coming into google as an L3 with 1-2 years experience. What does it take to get promoted to the next level? How fast could I achieve this? How should I approach this subject with my manager?

    Surviving reorgs for three years and blood of the firstborn. If seriously median is 2-3 years. If you don’t launch something visible managers won’t bother with early promos.

    For my team the normal for new grad L3s was 18 months, but could happen as soon as 10-12 months too. Don't have as much data for someone with experience

      I heard 2 years average for new grads. I was hoping to get it within a year

    Around a year is reasonable for an industry hire. Make it clear to your manager you want to do it.
