Comp expectations if I leave FB?

Facebook GDSI06
Jan 27 13 Comments

Getting a promotion to E5 at Facebook in a couple weeks, expecting base + bonus to be 200 and about 110 in stock vesting every year. I have just over 2 yoe. Assuming I’ll go down a level if I went to Google or other companies, roughly what TC could I expect? In MPK now, interested in Seattle and MTV.

Clarification: I know I’d be making less if I moved. Just want to know how much less.

    E5 in 2 years? Isn’t that pretty much unheard of. That’s ridiculous to call someone a senior swe with 2 yoe

      Definitely not unheard of- I know a few people who have reached E5 in 3-4 performance cycles. Agree that calling me senior is ridiculous though...

      Each performance cycle is a year or shorter?

      That’s insane. That means you were E4 for only 1 year before promo? I have a similar tc and yoe as you, but I don’t even want to touch the equivalent of E5 somewhere until 4 yoe

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the default offer here were L4 at about $220k-$240k. Actually, that may even be optimistic...Each case is different but in general G does not match your existing comp without competing offers. FB specifically may be treated specially though.

    Is FB really that bad you want to move with that kind of trajectory?

    Don’t interview at google; instead interview at companies that would offer u their L5/senior equivalent based on ur level at fb, like snap, Dropbox, twitter, unicorns, etc.

    Google will give you L4 but might be possible to match your current TC

    With that kind of promo velocity why are you even thinking about switching ?
