How long does it takes to get the offer letter afer team matching process. My team was finalized on last friday.

Recruiter told me that my comp is very high and will go through director/vp approval. Its L4 offer. Is it possible that offer gets rejected at this stage?

Google recruiting is super slow.
What’s going on?

    Random question: would a recuiter ever tell you the comp is average?

      Haha, good point, but does every offer letter goes via director approval at google? Its only for L4.

    • It goes to one of the 3 HQs for pre-review (before the numbers), then after offer is accepted it goes to final executive committee review. Super long process with multiple steps where you can get rejected when you thought you had an offer in hand

    Yes. All offer letters go through that. Yes, it might get rejected here and comp may be one of the reasons.

    • There is a pre-review executive level committee. It's not final and it's done before official offer is extended. Recruiter was very clear that HC recommended a hire at L4 or more interviews for L5. I chose the former and got a team match. Pre-review committee didn't see L4 as an option unfortunately

      So now there are 3 committees? HC, Pre review and Exec?

    • Yes, that's what I've found out in posts e.g. on Quora and it matches my experience, unless recruiter is lying.

      Pre-review is also executive level btw

      But that won't make sense, why would Exec level go over twice. Let me find out more.

      OP - did you end up giving more interviews? Or did they accept you for L3? I am in the same boat

      I am running into a similar situation with my amazon TC at 280. Did google end up matching for you for L4?

    Everyone says it’s goes to VP approval. This is just a bait. So that you don’t ask more.
