    TC aside, you are probably not doing too well if you are seeking validation on Blind.

    You're doing well, but not amazing. This is pretty average for FAANG. For example, good undergrads can get around 200-220K TC at Microsoft in Redmond fresh out of school (0yoe), which is much higher than what you're making after COL adjustment. Facebook and Google pay even higher.

      Ok a few things.
      1. L59s don't get 130k base
      2. Your signon bonus should be /4 because TC is generally calculated as that. Or you can do /3.5 to keep it consistent with stock vesting.

      Sign on should be divided by the length of time you plan on staying at the company, which most people and studies say that the optimal is 2.

      That's just...your opinion bro. Most others here compute TC a different way. So whatever numbers you mention can't be used for comparison.

      FB new grads makes $250k+ by that comparison.

      $110k base, $45k stock per year, $100k sigon + 10% bonus

      Yeah exactly. It throws off all the calibration we have - 150k to 200k for L3, 250-300 for L4, and so on.

      Generally not, but I got recruited by an executive. I had very relevant experience in a technology they needed help with. Leaving in 2 weeks for Netflix :)

      It’s not, this is my first time making this much and I’m happy about it but I want to stay inspired and not get complacent

      I hope the poll on blind inspired you lol

  • Not bad. But nothing to write home if you work at a bank on the tech side in NYC. If non-tech and non investment banking then it’s pretty good!
