How much can I negotiate and increase this Google offer?
Location: Austin, TX
102k base salary
87k GSUs / 4 years
30k signing bonus
Location: Seattle, WA
112k base salary
80k RSUs / 4 years
36k signing bonus (first year)
22k signing bonus (second year)
Based on the provided numbers (not including reloc) + 15% annual bonus, Google matched Amazon's offer.
I'm likely going to accept the Google offer, but wanted to get some advice negotiating equity a bit higher (ideally 100k or above). I'd also like to benchmark this against other offers for Google's Austin office.
However never choose amazon tho.
Plus Austin is the booming city.
