Hello!
I received an offer from Google Cloud for Staff (T6) Customer Engineer - 100K equity/year; 165K base; 30% (of base) sales plan (this 30% is variable, based on sales goals). Location is Houston. (FYI - Cost of living wise Austin > Houston > Dallas)

Unfortunately, I don't know if this is a good offer or if I need to negotiate on any of these numbers. Thoughts?

Thank you!

    @SpLQ73 - thanks! But wow, really that's Bay Area comp for Staff engineer? I read on Blind that it was over 500k. Yea, but I've no idea, that's why I posted :-)

    It also depends on your location and the skills ,you did not provided those so a bit hard to say. Out of the blue I'd say starting att 100k in non Bay Area location

    @xEon51. I've no idea. But my guess, it won't be the same across all locations.

    Does Google have the same TC band for all US locations or only for internal transfer?

    @Piggy. Thanks! No I'm sure the pay is more than sufficient. I just want to make sure I'm being valued correctly in the market, I'm so tired of being taken advantage of by corporations (granted I wasn't being smart either).
