I am at Microsoft Level 61. Google is offering me L3. New grads also get L3 at Google, I feel my 4 years of experience doesn’t mean much. Should I join it or decline? Would it be a step down in career?

- Amazon Hill BillyWell hate to break it to you, usually a Microsoft L61 doesn't stack up to an L4 at Google or L5 at Amazon. Promotions at Microsoft are easier and the quality of work isn't that great at Microsoft. I had a similar situation like you where I reached L61 in 2 years at Microsoft but only got L3 at Google. But if you are good, you should be able to make L4 in a year.
