Saying no to an accepted offer after promotion at current job
I had accepted an L4 offer @ Google HW in July, with a start date of November (waited for the Apple October vest and bonus). This review cycle, I got promoted to ICT4 at Apple, with really good numbers (exceeds in all areas).
Now ICT4 is (quasi)-terminal level in Apple, unlike Google, where I need to fight for T5 promo. Also the comp for next year is substantially higher at Apple @ 330k vs ~290k at Google. I believe the average ICT4 refresher at Apple (@ ~120k) is also higher than Google T4 (esp. HW) refresher.
Because of all these reasons, I am reluctant to go to Google and had a few questions:
1) Is there a way to reneg the on the Google offer without burning bridges?
2) Is it possible to use the Google offer to ask for more dough from Apple, or will it be perceived negatively, especially coming immediately after a promo. I'm on great terms at Apple, with our Sr. Director personally knowing me and my work. So I have good bargaining power at Apple I think, but don't want to spoil long term prospects for a few grand. Planning to pitch this as a request for more cash rather than a counter offer.
Would really appreciate any feedback from the community.
