    Google. Much better resume builder and higher TC once you consider COL.

    BCG is a wonderful company with better benefits than Google. They’re still learning how to employ engineers, you’ll get frustrated being second class to the consultants. Go to Google.

    • Jeez how did you have that conversation with your manager? Or were you granted stock by default based on performance or did you ask for it

    If I see it right, Google is paying less than your current tc. That's a red flag for me. Also that google stock grant is lower than what I have seen recently for l3 even after considering non bay area location. You should definitely negotiate there.
