Evaluate Tesla and Google offers

Apple / Eng RomEr
Apr 24, 2018 44 Comments

Company - Level/Base/Sign-on/RSU

Google - L4/$150K/$50K/$275K
Tesla - P3/$160K/$10K/$400K

Both offers are final, no room for any further negotiations.

Google has a guaranteed 15% target bonus each year, not sure about Tesla.

I know both offers are really good (as far as I am concerned) but I am really torn. Please advice which one would be best to chose given current market scenario and future prospects. Thanks in advance.

Edit 1: my total work ex is 7 years.

    With that offer, Tesla. Google had been saturated. You need luck to land on a good team. Culture across teams are wildly different

    What team at tesla? We don't have bonus afaik. There are no perks like free food etc, so you should factor that in when you calculate your take home. Pm me if you want to know more.
