      Google is huge, I imagine there's non-rest and vest options

    I got offers from Google (L5) and Uber (5a) last month. Uber’s offer was no where for me to even consider it.

    Google TC: ~$400k
    Uber TC: ~$300k

    • Unfortunately, the recruiter wasn't lying. They aren't able to be very flexible with offers after they instituted the fair compensation stuff last year.

      What is fair compensation algorithm based on? Max limit? Interview performance? Specialties?
      Aug 13, 2018
    • At a high level, one of the things the fair compensation stuff does is ensure that there is no statistically significant difference in pay between race or gender. Aside from that, I think it was implemented to pull up the minimum pay so that our minimum pay is in line with median pay of other big tech companies. Beyond that, I don't know what functions they use.

      As far as I know Linkedin levels are inflated. So a LinkedIn senior would be placed at low l5a at Uber. Google sr should get more rsu

      I don’t care if people say inflated or not. I was senior at LinkedIn, I got L5 (senior) at Google. Uber is the one that’s not paying up to market rate.

      Uber annual paper money TC will be around 350 in that case which is not above FANG compensation?

      It might not be above now but I think the thinking is that the share price will double on IPO

      I’m about to interview for 5a myself. Fingers crossed. Have a $320k L6 offer from Amazon but will drop it if I get in.

    TC will be slightly more, maybe 400k, but it won’t be liquid.

      I don’t know, but 20k is probably above the median.
