    I don’t have any suggestions for you but I request you to share your preparation strategy and interview experience. That’s stellar interview performance and your advice will help a lot of us.

      OP here. Leetcode + system design. Cover the breath on technical coding questions. The more you cover the higher the chances of you getting questions from the similar pattern and you can easily crack it. And practice, practice and practice. That's the only suggestion.

    This helped me a lot:

    Negotiate sure, they will often say “if I get you that X extra RSU/base/signon, will you accept that offer? I don’t want to go fight for that if you don’t accept”

    But you just have to keep playing the game until you get the best offer, play them against each other, and you’re satisfied.

      When they say something like this, and you're on your last round of negotiation with each company, don't be afraid to give a verbal commitment that you may renege on. Recruiters do it all the time, so it's only fair, and likely won't get you blacklisted.

      Congrats!!

      Did you get an offer from Google? If so what was their initial and after negotiation offer breakdown?

      Nope, DP technical round screwed my chances.

    Congratulations! But do you see the problem here? You have so many in hand that it will be difficult for you to select one, is gonna be a jungle!! If you have already mentioned the HR’s that you have cracked so many of them, they would understand that you’re a good shot and probably the one in lower tiers would back off from even giving an offer.

      OP
      Thanks. Yes and I am fine with that. So far none backed off but will see when the real number game begins. Hope it won't get messy as you mentioned.

      Well, I don’t see the heavy hitters yet giving offers, only lower tier’ish companies. Real money is to come from the places still in queue it seems.

    • Groupon timetogonw
      Yes and that's the reason asking if better to negotiate in the end or start the process now.

      Thats one bad thing you may be subjecting yourself to - timing needs to work well and you don’t want to start negotiation early only to disappear as you wait for the other offers

      They didn't shared any offer once I shared my expectations. I believe it was out of band for the level.

    Be prepared for companies to pull their offers as well if you can't make a decision. You're 1 person, they're running a business and will move on from you...trust me.

      I prefer to not join such company anyways 😉

  • Square / Eng ajjsjdjfjc
    Congrats. Shoulda done Google earlier if you're serious with them. Could take really long for them to extend an offer.

    • Groupon timetogonw
      That is true but for that I need to clear the rounds as well and don't want to miss that chance by rushing for it.

    Hey OP, just curious. Did the companies wait almost a month for you to make a decision? Any insight on how you pulled that off would be helpful
