Career options for long time google engineer?
I am a long time senior level Google engineer/ manager with a TC I am very happy with (600K annual, stock vesting being a significant portion of it). I am just no longer enjoying the work I do and as the company has grown, having to deal with the politics just wears me down. I'd rather have more technical work occupy my days. A bit of a golden handcuff situation.
I understand my TC is on the higher end, hence the questions: Are there companies in the bay area that would match my compensation from the start? Match my unvested stocks? I am looking for a fresh start but don't want to lose compensation significantly. Or is transferring within the company my only option? Please advise.
P.s. Not interested in starting or working in startups. I don't have the energy for that.
