Have offers from L3 Google vs Senior SE Linkedin.

LinkedIn :
WLB
Goot team, good work
Impact
- Not as flashy as google

Google :
Google stamp
YouTube ads team
Manager seems to have high expectations from team match call.
- Worried ending up in maintaining legacy

Any other things I need to know about Google to help me decide in favor of Google.

      I thought G stopped asking sys design below L5.

      They ask system design for some L4s I believe.

    If TC is comparable, G is nobrainer

      You would accept a lower level position for same TC just because it is Google? Damn...

      Of course, so you can easily climb to L4 and get more TC. If the current TC is same, I'd always choose a lower level. Think about it. If you are given the same salary and put at s/w engineering, I will blow away my expectations and get a promotion

      A bit late to this thread, but I completely agree with Weiner. I don't understand the obsession with levels. If the TC is to your satisfaction, who cares what the level is? The lower the level, the easier it will be for you to exceed expectations, get promoted and thus get EVEN MORE money. It's a complete no brainer.

      TC is far more meaningful than some arbitrary level number any day of the week.

    L3 for 5 yoe is stupid unless you did nothing in those 5years. All the way LinkedIn. Don't sell yourself for less.

    So you think you’ll be working on maintenance at Google, and still think its flashy? No one gives a F if you work at G or not (unless you graduated from college yesterday)

      All things being equal, google obviously sounds more cooler than Linkedin.
      Better brand on your resume too

    Google obviously. Comp with refreshers will be better than Sr Swe in LinkedIn.

    Comp will be similar. Choose one with the higher comp. So TC or GTFO.
