Cruise compensation?

I am a L6 Product Manager at FB (was at Yelp). A recruiter reached out for a role at Cruise. It seems like an interesting area to work on. Are they competitive with total compensation of FB? Do they give pre ipo stocks or gm stocks?

    GM stocks, go for it.

      New hires are getting cruise rsus, not gm stock (since softbank investment). In addition you get an equal amount of annual cash bonus.

      What is cruise RSU worth? Is it like a pre ipo stock grant at other companies like Airbnb, Pinterest etc. Any idea about price per RSUs?

      Yes, it's private stock. Valuation is public in recent news articles. You also get an equal amount of annual cash bonus.

    We are hiring senior PM roles, product team is really good, I used to work at FB and get paid more at Cruise. New hires get the new Cruise stake and cash.

      What’s cruise equity? Is it something that vests upon ipo?

      Yeah, the details are a bit sparse but essentially yes. I have a swe offer that we're in the final stages of negotiating.

    Cruise is paying top of market, but the new equity packages are still shaking out after the SoftBank deal

      We pay very well, but over 500k tc seems extremely high unless you are factoring in stock appreciation there. I honestly have no idea about pm, but equivalent eng TC for l5 would be in the 350k range.

      Anyway, if you're concerned about it it wouldn't hurt to ask the recruiter straight up and share your current comp, they will be honest with you.

    Is it a TPM role or PM? Did the recruiter say which team or product the role is for?

      I said product manager. Why would I become a tpm after having been a product manager?!?

      Just to add to confusion there are also product manager technical roles for some data and infra teams. This might be what recruiter reached out about.

    I don't think they are hiring at senior pm roles. Check with the recruiter on this.
