Comp cliff as Google T4: Best option for long-term comp/career growth
Have stayed in Google almost 4 yrs. I will have a comp cliff in July this year. I have hesitated to interview other companies or stayed another 1.5 yrs (I guess) for Google T5 title.
Status in current team:
- Not a TL yet.
- Ratings as T4 were: CME, CME, (EE, I expect what I will get this time). I guess I will get another 2+ EEs until get a SEE and promote to T5.
What is your suggestion for pursuing a long-term growth on comp (major) and career (minor)? Wait until T5 or interview now? Rationale is welcomed in comment.
Total comp: 270k
