Qualcomm / Eng Roosy

My problem is that as I learned more about the job profile during team fit calls the more I disliked it which is just talking to partner and back to PM/engineering. It's like a shallow middle man work. I am an engineering lead in my current profile and have not coded in a while even though I cleared the coding interview

What to do? I don't want it to take just for little extra money. Should I simply say no or do I have any other options?

    Take it and FIRE (financial independence early retirement).

    If you're an engineering lead and don't code, I would say Google is giving you a good exit strategy and be at a company with 3 times more benefits than Qualcomm.

    If you're there for 4 years, that is 1.6 mil. You end up spending 1.0m, you are still left with a huge chuck of stable Google stocks and other savings you can use in retirement.

    All of the above is if you aren't changing location.

    At L6 you are expected to shape your position and organization. If your management is good you can improve things. If not, do good work for a year and try to transfer. In either case you'll have Google on your resume and an interesting experience.

    Think of your stint with Google as a step to the next gig. You will have many more opportunities open up once you have google on your resume.
    You get to put ex-google on your linked-in profile

    • This^.

      Why did you even interview if it was not a proper match (expectations or otherwise).

    Do you have to relocate to the Bay Area from San Diego? If so, you don't win any money

    I would definitely do it. Your exit opportunities would be better than they are now

    I have to move from San Diego and for the sake of comparison it is $1.2xx vs $1.6 over 4 years so there is no FIRE here

      Ok makes sense. Don't take it if there is a location change like I said in my post.

    So from all the suggestion so far it is between Yes and No. Is there a middle ground for asking some other role? Maybe Google folks can pitch in
