Google offer vs staying in snowflake

5d 23 Comments

joined snowflake a year ago. Got stocks after final round of fund raising (strike price around 8) 20k options per year.
Tc at snowflake 360k (200kbase /20k options per year )

got google L6 offer TC 470k (base 200/ 210k stock/60k bonus)

given snowflake is going for IPO/aquisition is it a nice idea to move at this point of time.

  • Personally - as someone who evaluates products every day per my role, I see a diminishing future for Snowflake.

    Right now it’s doing really good but, Amazon Redshift is going to capture the market that it lost to Snowflake. There’s Databricks Deltalake as well that’s competing in the same area and is gaining ground pretty fast.

    Long term, I wouldn’t stay with Snowflake.

    L6 at Google for sure. Unless you're part of the leadership team at Snowflake

      Definitely Google then. Even if Snowflake IPOs, the data startups haven't been doing well on the market - look at Cloudera for example. We don't even know if Snowflake is already profitable or not - and the market hasn't been kind to non profitable companies - like Uber, Lyft etc

      Work culture is good. Not too much pressure. Easy going manager. Work wise not too interesting as this is not my area of expertise.

    Is the Snowflake stock ISOs or RSUs?
    If RSUs, I'd wait until fully vested then jump. I can't imagine your IPO not crushing, unless something macro happens and takes the market with it.
