I know its another one of those posts but need help evaluating offers. 3yrs exp non-swe.

Currently IC4 155/60/15% yearly

Have Google offer L3 119/40/30sign/15%

Another option is a series D startup 180base 60 equity per year

Work and team’s nice and interesting for both.

Google won’t budge unless there is a higher competing offer from a public company.

Thanks!

    Won't budge unless you got competing offer? What kind of crap is that? It means they think you worth more but just won't give it to you. I'd say fuck you to the recruiter. Reject the offer, state the rain: comp isn't competitive. Back again in a few months.

    Pay rise at Google is hard to get. Don't get trapped

      I heard this from my Google recruiter too. It's because it's illegal for them to ask for your current salary now so "legally" they can't consider it when giving you an offer. Agreed that that's bs though

      they can't legally ask, but you can disclose on your own.

      Nope, even if you disclose it unilaterally they still can’t record or use it to form the offer

      Doesn't seem to apply when voluntarily disclosed.

    Google base is pitifully low and the recruiter’s attitude is the deal breaker. It’s one thing to not negotiate but quite a different thing to basically concede that they will pay more if you got another offer. Unless you are desperate as in you are unemployed, google’s offer should be the first to out of the window

      What do they want to see in respects to another offer? An email? Cut and paste. I’ll be going through the process in a few weeks.

    Your current comp is same as a competing offer in this case.
