Google considering L4 due to past interview
Embedded SWE. Try for Consumer HW.
Last year, Interviewed for L5, did terrible. Got L4. Turned down.
This year, interviewed for L6, went to L6 HC, they simply say leadership and system design not strong. Total BS. Anyways, HC approved but they asking VP to decide L4 or L5 JUST because I had L4 last year. Otherwise it would have been automatic L5.
Should have Apple offer in hand very soon. If Apple gives ICT5, will G uplevel back to L6?
