Google offer exploded, can't be considered for 1 year?

Hello,

My recruiter sent me an unusually low offer then sent me a 4-day notice that the offer would expire. I had kept the recruiter updated about my timeline with other companies, and the recruiter knew that I would not be ready to make a decision. The offer expired, and now Google tells me that I cannot be considered for any role for 1 year because I declined the offer. What's with that.

    Even Amazon wouldn’t do that 4-day thing. Shame on GG.

    I'll give you a job right now with £500k TC, but you have to accept in writing before I finish typing this sentence. Ohhh, too late - the offer has expired.

    I am under same boat and I accepted the offer and wanted to keep my options open. Now I am thinking how can I counter the lower offer?

      Im in the same boat. Accepted out of fear of l3 freeze and got a couple offers in the weeks after. Im 99% they’ll tell me to fuck off though. We’ve already accepted why would they reopen negotiations at this point? Anyone have insights?

      that seems like a lot of information. I was offered L5 SWE in Tokyo but I did not interview in Tokyo.

    How well did your interviews go? Maybe you barely passed and that’s why they refused to negotiate?

      Whaaa? How about a 15 minute offer, are they insane?

    Maybe they were in a hurry to hire someone for that role? And maybe they knew of other qualified candidates?
