Google Opportunity - Finance/Accounting (not computer science)

Nov 1, 2018 13 Comments

Hello everyone

Have an opportunity to work for Google in the Bay Area. The position is on the compliance side as an individual contributor with "Lead" title. It is not a manager role. I currently have 10 years experience in big 4.

Recruiter initially indicated high end of the range/ expected compensation to be $150K with $150K equity and 15% bonus. After the compensation meeting they indicated $145K/$100K equity over 4 years and 15% bonus. Minimal sign on.

Any thoughts on the compensation? Seems low to me but even at 10 years of experience it looks like managers typically have 12 to 15 years experience.

Would love some feedback.

    Does it beat your current total compensation and your peer group’s? I wouldn’t compare it to tech salaries here since they’re different jobs.

      If I was in bay area, in public accounting, the total comp offered by Google is only about $15 to $20 K higher

      I mean it’s fairly common knowledge the Goldman Sachs pays the lowest out of the investment banks because they know you’ll take the offer anyway and save the big money for senior roles. I’d say this is as good as it gets?

      Really, Google would do the same?

      Nah, it sounds like Google is doing you one better with more pay than peers. You’re going to take it even if you had another offer that paid the same or slightly lower.

      Why is Gamora??

      I think it went quite well. Clearly not based on the comp lol

    I'm in finance. This is a pretty good comp. Word of advice: negotiation is okay with Google but avoid back and forth as they might pull the offer. I have seen this happening, esp in finance

      They pull the offer? Why?

    Low for sure but it probably beats your current comp by a lot. Likely no negotiation
