50k joining bonus
205k stocks over 4 years
15% guaranteed yearly bonus
Can I negotiate and get more?
This offer is for L3 position. I have 3 yoe. Currently i am negotiating on the basis of a competing offer from Amazon(sde 2 L5 total yearly compensation of 215k). If it helps this offer is for one of the YouTube teams. I don't know if YouTube can pay a little above or below average.
- U would need competing offers to get more. Google just matches competing offers; they won’t offer u more otherwise.
- There’s no such thing as a “guaranteed bonus.” It’s called “target bonus.”
It means if you meet exactly your role’s expectations, you’ll get your target bonus. If you exceed the expectations, you’ll get more. If you don’t meet all the expectations, you’ll get less.
In reality, it’s a little more complicated than that, but I wanted to keep it simple (there’s also the factor of the company’s performance.)
