which offer?

Google DXmy37
Mar 12 38 Comments

Currently L6 in G (6 years), got offer from
Alibaba, (220K + 1.2M).
Wish, (250k + 1.1M)

YOE 15 year, current TC 450k
P10 ali, L6 in wish (actually I am not sure)

From the figure itself, Wish is slightly better.
However, it looks there are quite some organization churn in Wish.
Anyone has more insight w.r.t. these two companies?

      Culture is not very good. Political. Our CTO is out recently. Our CFO got fired after joining 2 weeks. At lots of people left or let go last year. 0 cross team communication. You probably won’t get much help from other teams. Company growth slows down. We tried to raise money, but...
      I like my team, but i hate other teams.

      Quite a turmoil. Just check out linkedin. In your next call, you should ask whether the company is still growing and financially stable?🤭 Discounts don’t just apply to merchandise price alone wink wink 😉

    Alibaba is 9-9-6 so hourly pay is actually lower

    Sounds like a lateral move. So your reason to move is not strictly TC based, thus the slightly edge of wish should not be a factor.

    More about a question of specific team, projects to take on, office politics, commute, etc, all are very personal. Trust your gut feeling, you can always switch later.

      TC ~100k higher before stock appreciation.
      Definitely google tech stack is superior.
      mostly on projects,
      thanks for the insight,

    L6 only makes 450k? Many people on blind post L5 offers close to that

      OP
      It is before stock appreciation.
      I was offered equity match when joining google from startup, and lowballed into L5 (I did not care but realize it was a mistake).
      Promoted last year to L6.

    Congrats OP, great offers. I'm surprised you're only getting 450 at l6. I'm assuming you're swe. I'm l5 and nearing promo for l6. With stock appreciation I'm already at 410 so debating if going for promo next cycle is even worth it for me. With 5 I can easily change teams and rock it on new team but as a new l6 I'd probably need to stay in my area for a while.

      star L5 may have higher compensation than average L6.
      The TC is before stock appreciation.

    I don’t like either, but I’ll go to wish if I were you. I don’t think it’s great to work in a satellite office (assuming your Alibaba offer is in the San Mateo office)
