Got a PGM offer for Mountain View. I have 17 yoe and current TC is $200 in NYC. Here's the breakdown for the Google offer:

Base: $115
Annual bonus : 15%
RSU: 100k/4

I'm also talking to Amazon and Facebook but haven't been on site with them yet. I would have to relocate my family from NY to CA, which would be impossible with this TC. Am i being lowballed?

ETA : This is for L4

updated : they came back with this:

base: 130
annual bonus: 15%
RSU: 250k/4
sign on: 15k

    Not sure what's normal for the PGM role, but in general Google will give low offers unless you have competing offers.

      So there's no room for negotiation?

      That's the point, to negotiate you need competing offer

      In this case current job is the competing offer. Don't do it OP. Tell your recruiter that this offer is far lower than what you would consider and walk away (unless they double it).

      I'm shocked by it. I thought it would be lower than I expect but not THIS low.

      You got down leveled with 17 yoe and lowballed in comp. I would keep interviewing

    Seems low. Is PGM a tech role? Do you know level?

      I probably wouldn't take it if I were you. Promo is very difficult to get without spending a lot of time in the role and level, so you'd be stuck making fairly similar TC for a while and the Bay Area is extremely expensive.

    That's low base. Try to get up to $130k

      OP
      130 is still way below my current base.

    Tell the recruiter the minimum you need to join. They'll hear you out. Otherwise, walk
