    How much more is enough for you ? Quote from Steph Curry: "never count another man's money" - if you make more or less than someone else, does it really matter ?

      Hmmm....so u never shopped around lets say when buying a car? How would u know the fair market value otherwise. Trust the dealership?

      Easy for wealthy individuals to come up with a kick ass one liners.

      It doesn't looking like you're shopping around but more like you're looking for community approval. If you're happy with the offer, then it doesn't matter what anyone else says.

      Since you didn't answer to my first question, I don't think any amount will make you truly happy (unless Blinders day you have a great offer).

    L6 bonus is 20%, you should make sure. It is a reasonably strong offer, hard to beat without getting competing offer from selective competitors.

      OP
      I really was making shiite before my current role...i never knew the base in CA. The pay in my state was shiite. I was upfront with google about how i got screwed w.r.t pay in the past and offered them my stubs. But they believed me. Interviews were mostly design...leadership...and couple coding questions from leetcode. But i told my interviewers i know them...then one asked me to debug a DCenter problem they had and another asked me to review and comprehend some random piece of code...not googles but some open source code. Regarding the DC problem, the team took 2 to 3 weeks to come up with just a plan of attack and i worked with the interviewer and we solved it in around 80 mins or so.

      I had to Google d center and came up with 1 center and p center problem. Sounds interesting. What's your background? Any advance math or combinatorics etc?

      Sounds more like an T5 offer.

      @OnnC18 more interesting/challenging position at Tesla.
      @onsie : that is just one datapoint, but my impression was that this is the beginning of L6 and the end of L5.

    My l5 offer recently: 190k, 50k bonus, 475k RSUs. Seems like your offer is strong based on rsu grant

      L6 and up generally has higher bonus target.

    That is impressive. Can I ask you what field you have experience on? It must be very relevant to Google or attractive for their V1 project.

    when u say good offer it’s subjective. If it’s market rate which seems to be. If u had already negotiated and this is the final offer ..take it or u can negotiate for more ! i would take it 😊
