Internal Microsoft Offer vs Final Round Google
Looking for advice!
Currently have an internal offer from Microsoft to move into a different PM role with a level bump and pay increase of about 8%.
However, I was previously contacted by Google and skipped straight to an on-site based on the hiring manager reviewing my resume along with my strong internal references there. They reached out this week told me the on-site feedback is “looking really good” and I have a “Final?” Phone call today with the Hiring Manager to “Discuss the role” aka make sure I’m not a tool.
Don’t want to accept internal, then external, and burn my bridge to ever return if needed which it seems like I would.
But also, I want out of my role and gambling is somewhat risky since either would be an improvement.
Is it risky to mention my Microsoft offer to Google? Initially I told them no timeline and no other offers because I had none, it came in from a previous interview cycle. Don’t want to come off as playing the field and getting denied from Google if I decline the internal move.
Anyone have any insight on what to say / do?
