Close to a 5A/5B offer : Path to EM ?

1) I am close to an Uber 5A/5B offer, interviewed for Senior Engineer. How is the 5A vs 5B decided - depends on YOE / Interview performance ? I have 14 YOE.

2) For those who want to go the EM route (I have had managerial experience before), how is the process to move from 5A/5B to an equivalent EM role ? Is it much easier at 5B than 5A ? Does it take too long ?

    If your space allows you could change the role to TLM and then fully switch to EM after a while.

    Could you elaborate a little more on what position exactly you applied for was it engineering manager or was it a senior engineer?

    What was the interview like what did it consist of?

    For the EM how does a path to EM work?

    TLM is technical lead manager?
    How would you go about asking your manager to turn into TLM or EM from an IC?
