Next move after accepting a lowball offer from Google?
I didn’t have leverage when negotiating with Google. I accepted an l3 offer with 175 TC, 3 yoe. I desperately needed to leave Amazon, so I’m happy to have the lifeline and ofc I’m excited that it’s Google, but also after spending a few months on this app I’m finding it hard to be really thrilled.
I structured my interviews so that Google was last, and I failed at a handful of top places beforehand. I have a few interviews remaining but I’ve already signed the offer so I’m sure I can’t negotiate. I’m going to be joining a cool team in LA. I just can’t shake the lousy feeling that I left like 70k on the table by not prepping hard enough
I feel that my options are somewhat limited. Even at this “lowball” offer, the only places in town that might be able to compete are snap, tinder, and Facebook. Is my only recourse to stay for a year, leave to one of those places for two years, reinterview and return with competing offers? Promo would take 2 years, right?
Im just trying to plot out the next chapter of my career and trying to optimize.
