Offer eval

Apr 15, 2018 11 Comments

Senior software engineer: ~180k base, ~13000 stocks/4years, ~15% bonus.
Currently <1 year L4 6 years exp. at Google annual comp 275k.

Does Uber have a lot of potential for growth with ipo set next year?
How’s the work culture and WLB at Uber?

I am also looking for advice on how to tell google to match. I’d stay if comp was the same but depending on how you value it, Uber stock maybe worth 650k.

    Bay area? I’d say stay at G, comp will get better with time, Uber isn’t worth the bump.

    How many years take you from l4 to l5 at google? I’d guess it’s gonna be 3-5 years on average from several years ago but it may be faster now?.

      That doesn’t seem to happen often. Most people stuck at L4 for at least 4-5 years.

      Median is 30months. Although this probably doesn’t include ramp up time

    I think you should go to Uber now and may be come back to G in couple of years as mid level L5. Since you are getting senior role at Uber and couple of years in that may push you to 5b (hopefully) making it easier for you to come back as mid level L5. That would be faster than just staying here.

    What's your current comp with split at L4 ? A friend had a very similar offer from Google for L4

  • Work culture and WLB are both good at Uber. Come join! IPO price is anyone’s guess.
