Companies with no cost of living adjustment?

Most companies reduce/increase your salary based on your location. Are there any companies that will give you the same salary regardless of location? Does Lyft, Uber, Salesforce, Air BnB etc adjust your compensation based on location or pay same as they pay in the Bay area?

      Wow so Facebook will pay the same amount to someone in Atlanta, Denver and Austin what they will pay in Melno Park?

      So many missing variables but I hear for SWE it is yes, especially between NY, MPK and Seattle. If non-tech, that’s a different story.

      Remember NY, MPK and Seattle are pretty expensive so sounds plausible. Atlanta, Denver and Austin are not as much. If you can get a TC of 300 in Atlanta that's pretty good

      Yes, FB pays equally everywhere across the US. Last time I checked folks in Seattle effectively get about 25% more take home income than those in MPK.

    Google does not adjust your compensation if you reallocate within the US, but I'm not sure about the starting salary for new hires

      G does adjust the base.
      Eg. it gets up to 10% lower when you move from CA to WA.

      Maybe they have changed then, when I used to work at Google it explicitly said there is no adjustment in case of reallocation in the same country

    Depends on manager. Some teams at uber allow remote and no pay adjustments. Though you should be able to work in the same time zone.

      Which teams/orgs at Uber are this remote friendly?

      And if you move to Washington for example, do you still need to pay CA state income tax?

    It depends on the circumstances, but it happens. Usually only for L6+ who are integral to the org. (At Amazon)

    Google has very minimal adjustment inside the US.

    Schneider Electric Software , now Aveva, does. I know of several colleagues who left California for lower cost states and maintained their pay

    So they would do this for a candidate they want badly but it's not the standard corporate policy is what I get from that.
