Google new grad negotiation

Microsoft M-x L3
Oct 15 13 Comments

Expecting offer soon -- (1) what's the max TC for new grad L3 at Google?
(2) Does it differ from industry hires and if so, can I argue that 5 internships is exceptional and different from new grads?
(3) Can I use CoL as justification for more TC (Chicago vs bay area is a very large difference)?

For those about to comment "get / depends on competing offers," I have competing offers from quant firms (detailed at bottom). I'm also expecting offers from quant firms in NYC (higher CoL, should be higher than this one)

For those about to comment "you're not worth that much as a new grad," in trading, a rule of thumb for fair value is somewhere above the highest bid (aka job offer in this context). I hope you get higher TC soon.

offer (quant firm in Chicago):
150k base
50k minimum first year bonus, 75k target, expected to grow very fast (much faster than RSU + refresh at L3)
50k signing
TC: 200(min) or 225(target) + 50 in lower CoL region
