      About 50k a year is typical refresher for L4 here, so I would assume 200k for initial 4y grant

      Stock grant is definitely L3. Even London/Dublin give more or comparable stock.

      OP
      How much is it in London/Dublin for l4?

    • Google / Eng itsxyzzy
      Less than in Zurich. Especially in Dublin. Google Zurich is top pay in Europe.

      ^^ I agree but in OP’s case that is Dublin/London L3 stock for eng.

    This is an L4 offer. Seems similar to what they usually offer, but you can definitely negotiate if you have competing offers (although don't expect a full match). Why go to Switzerland? Pay is way better in the US, and promotions come a lot more frequently.

      OP is in Singapore currently. US might not be an option for him/her right now.

      Do you have sauce on pay being lower in Switzerland vs the US? I had heard google paid comparable salaries in Zurich.

      Not true. Zürich pay is even higher. I am transferring from US to Zürich and they increased my base.

      I just know what I was offered in the (fairly recent) past and that they did not do a full match to competing offers (from US).

    If it’s their initial offer, looks like a very basic L4 one. But you can get much better numbers for both L3 and L4 via competing offers / negotiations.

    What would be the base for L5/L6 at Google Dublin (eng)?
