1 YOE
Master's Degree

I have an offer with Google that I feel is lower in general based off of what most people post but I find it difficult to compare based on my YOE being just one year. It seems like it's on the lower spectrum and it seems low for L4. Can anyone give any insight into this?

My location team matched with a team in Sunnyvale.

I also have an offer with Amazon for Seattle but it was for Amazon L4 which is a tier lower than Google L4.

    L4 with 1 yoe and that TC is pretty fair.

    It seems good offer. I have CS PhD+6YOE and got L4 offer but slightly more RSUs. MS+1YOE seems a good offer.

    When did you interview? Did you have system design? Were you told you are being interviewed for l4 or that was after your onsite?

    I had a very similar TC figure for my L4 package with 1.5 yoe. Coincidentally, I also had an Amazon L4 offer.

    I am in a similar situation now. L4(SDE1) offer from Amazon, and L4 offer from Google, but no numbers from Google. I let Google know I have this L4 offer from Amazon, and Im afraid they may try to low-ball me. Did you accept?

    It's a good offer, u can always try to negotiate based on your other offers. If you reach a point where they won't budge more, you accept.
