By how much % does comp between bay and Seattle vary , also the base.
Say at 160k base in MTV would be equivalent to what base in Seattle

Got offer T4 Seattle
Base - 140k
Stock - 360 k - 4 years
Sign on 10k
Target bonus 15%
Total tc first year 260y(with sign on )
Yoe 7
Current TC 210k (129k + 81k stocks) - SDE 2

I see bay area base around 150-160 k and stocks around 400k regularly.
Is my offer lowball ?
They seem to be in no mood for any movement.

      I could, but is it when a 90 percentile Seattle offer match 50 percentile bay ?

    How many years of work experience do you have. How did you prepare for the interview? Leetcode medium/hard?

    Last year, I got an offer for T4 with a 220 TC in the Puget Sound area.

    I was told and realized it was true that they needed a competing offer in order to negotiate (I did eke out a 10k sign-on, so first year would have been 230k TC).

    The Google brand has no premium to me over the Microsoft brand, so it would have taken me more than that to move.

    Probably, a TC over 300k would have convinced me.
