Wondering if anyone can give their experiences around this. Fb and goog expect you to reach e5/t5 after a certain amount of time. Anyone actually got fired because of not being able to make it?

    What is e5/t5? I think we should have a pinned with the acronyms here.

      These are short for engineer/technical level 5 which is job level. In other companies these levels are equivalent to staff level.

      They may be equivalent to staff level in other companies in terms of comp, but not in terms of scope. People are expected to reach these levels at fb/G, but most people don’t reach staff levels at other companies.

    I know a few people who didn’t make it. Different reasons. Usually something wrong with the person.
