    I have an onsite next week for a similar position. These numbers don't get me excited. I hope I crack it though. @OP any pointers?

      @OP, Is grokking system design all that you needed? Or did you have other experience from work or use other resources?

    Are you relocating form India? My recruiter tried to convince me that the maximum relocation package is 8K. Offer was for L63.

      No way I have seen 13.5 k relocation as well. But I guess it all depends on family size and from where you are moving
