Considering a position in the Bay with Google and I'm wondering what the relo benefit would look like. Do they help with home sale? I've seen a lot of figures for points and lump sums for L3/L4, but nothing really for L5/L6.

    Why would a potential L6 care about relocation bonus ?

    Isn't that insignificant ?

      No amount of money is insignificant. There are also convenience aspects to it.

    The benefit is in points, which you can use for relocation services. The lump sum cashout value is generally not very much compared to the redemption value in services. At L5/L6+, the cashout value is probably $10k, or $30k+ in services.

      Why are you expecting more?

      The value of the points for is different than cashing out. It's not meant to be a sign on bonus.

      I guess that's what happens when you don't have MKs.

      I'm expecting more because my research told me it was probably based on your level, I understand it is not a sign on, this is not my first relo. Just trying to understand what an L6 would receive

    What are points? Negotiated services for moving/packing/ selling home?

      Points are usable for a menu of services such as movers, storage, temporary housing, rental car

    FWIK the reloc package does not change drastically (if at all it does) for L5/6. It is for VPs and beyond where they get extra benefits than the rest of the crowd (like option to buy a home and Google lends support financially). L1-7 are all the same wrt relocation benefits (points vs cash out)
