Slow Google Offer Process

Why is Google so slow in putting an offer and doing the team match appointments?

The recruiter ghosts for 1-2 weeks then comes back with news, when I was about to accept another offer.

It looks as if they’re stalling or trying to earn time, even though they know that I have 4 other offers waiting!

Also the recruiters never transmit written feedback.

Their process is a pure dark magic blackbox to me.

For people who are or have been working in G, how long did this team match process take?
Then how long to wait an offer?
I see some persons mentionning 5 months on some threads which seems insane. I do not think that several companies will wait 4 months for a hypothetical G offer which may be lower than theirs.

Since it seems they always lowball at first, how long to get a real offer after?

Thank you Blinders!

    If you take one of the other 4 offers, they have a million other resumes.

    My process there took months and they finally got back to me with a lowball offer after I had given up on them and accepted another (better) one.

    1. Have google offer.
    2. If low balled, do not accept, it is still valid for the remaining 12 months.
    3. Use the google offer to get the top position and/ or salary at other places (your next best company). Optional: See if Google can match this later.
    4. If you cannot succeed (3), at least you tried, accept google offer.

  • I had experience working with two different recruiters in google where one was similar to what you have described here but the other was night and day different. So I think it might be your recruiter.
