Reviving Google offer

Dec 3, 2019 18 Comments

If I were to activate my Google offer (L5 SWE) within the 1 year timeframe I understand that I wouldn’t have to interview again but would have to do team match.

I have two questions that hopefully the good people at Google could help answer:

1. What about HC? Would my previous interview feedback have to go through the HC again?

2. Would compensation have to be renegotiated as well? Essentially would Google try to lowball because I don’t have any competing offers?

    Your TC at fb is awesome. Did you join FB as E5 or E4? Wondering with what level in MSFT were you able to get E5/E4 in FB

      Yup, 59 to 64 in 5 years. I was very blessed to be at the right place at the right time and to work with and learn from some top-notch engineers. Moving was a very hard decision.

    Thanks for sharing. I am a recent 62 and keep hearing that it takes 3 years to 63 :/

      I know first hand of plenty of people who have done it in a year. The average is probably higher but I don’t think for the last decade it’s been that high.

    Google will try to lowball you for sure. Most likely they won't even match your current TC :(

    Answers: you wouldn't have to go through HC again and there will be no negotiation on compensation again. Just team match.
