    That’s..not fantastic that’s barely above the L3 max band

    It concerns me that Amazonians are getting lowballed hard at Google

    This makes me feel better about my post a moment ago. Except that I clearly need to ask for a little bit more equity.

    Good offer. Ask for more on the sign-on imo.

      What leverage can i use for more signing if i dont have competing offer?

      usually a ton of flexibility on sign on, all you have to do is ask.

      Just give them a rough idea of context of why you are asking. (e.g. assist with cash flow crunch that comes with moving cross country, or yoy take home pay). Honestly just show the recruiter your math and you can close a 10-20k gap.

    Did you have to do your onsite at NYC or did you do it in Seattle/Mountain View and then ask for team match in NYC? Curious at what stage you need to pick location.

    I got a similar offer for L4 at Seattle. Slightly more stock and sign on bonus, with 2 competing offers. Was told it's very close to L4 ceiling. NYC taxes are harsh though, perhaps try to get a competing offer so you can get Google to up theirs a bit.

      OP
      Mind sharing how much more you received?

      Dont think its the ceiling, my mentor also received L4 offer for mtv but had 170 base with 600k stock and ~90k signing. He did have competing offer from fb.

      I think MTV has higher caps but that sounds more like L5. Mine was 400k and 75 sign on IIRC
