Google Pittsburgh Comp

What is pay like for an L3 there? Also, I put it as my preferred city since it's close to home, but after my girlfriend graduates at the end of 2020 we wanted to explore the possibility of moving to the bay area eventually. Then again, would probably be cool w/ staying in Pittsburgh too.

I'm on team matching stage but haven't yet passed HC, so still up in the air if I get an offer. But I'm just wondering, if I get a lower offer in Pittsburgh, but wanted to move to MTV, it's unlikely that my total comp would rise much to justify the COL increase right? Would I be that far behind starting at Pittsburgh as opposed to MTV?

Im only asking because my recruiter wants to know location preferences before team matching

      Oh yeah savings wise it’s probably hard to beat. But you have to live in Pittsburgh so

    Google pay is pegged to market, which is close to pegging to COL but not quite the same. When you transfer the comp is adjusted accordingly--if you start in Pittsburgh then transfer to MTV a year later, your pay should be pretty much the same as if you'd just started in MTV.

    OP, what happened at the end? Did you match with a team? How long it took?

    I am also at team matching for Pittsburgh. So any insight would be helpful. Thanks
