1 YOE
Master's Degree

I have an offer with Google that I feel is lower in general based off of what most people post but I find it difficult to compare based on my YOE being just one year. It seems like it's on the lower spectrum and it seems low for L4. Can anyone give any insight into this?

My location team matched with a team in Sunnyvale.

I also have an offer with Amazon for Seattle but it was for Amazon L4 which is a tier lower than Google L4.

      Might be because I have a master's degree?

    L4 with 1 yoe and that TC is pretty fair.

    It seems good offer. I have CS PhD+6YOE and got L4 offer but slightly more RSUs. MS+1YOE seems a good offer.

    When did you interview? Did you have system design? Were you told you are being interviewed for l4 or that was after your onsite?

      I felt mixed. There was two that was okay but two that I performed really well. The fifth was a leadership/behavioral which I aced.
