i recently interviewed @ Zillow in Seattle.
after the interview in one week recruiter got back saying, i interviewed for Sr position but based on my performance Hiring Committee decided to offer me SWE position. i didnt do well in one round, so they are not sure!!
i have 2 offers at hand and the offer at hand max TC is $230K - i have a deadline for this but i liked zillow so told recruiter that i have offer and i would like to move forward faster if everything works out.
now, recruiter comes back and assured me that i will be given SWE offer for sure but if i want to - they will give me one more telephone round for Sr position.
by mistake during the conversation with recruiter i mentioned the company i have offer and also mentioned my pacakge. did i screw up!?
a) should i just take SWE or try phone round for Sr position?
b) i have deadline in 2 days for other offers, shoukd i just decline it!? feeling moraly obligated! :)
c) will recruiter take advantage of the details i have provided and will give very low package!?
lots of confusion... need help!

TC - $180 in San Diego
I would say ask other companies for more time and do another round. You are not losing anything
