Have following offers facebook & twitter to join as a senior software engineer. Live in peninsula so commute would be similar time wise.
Facebook E5 - Base:200k, bonus:15%, RSUs: 650k, signon:75k - TC: 392k
Facebook will join bootcamp.
Twitter Senior: Base:200k, bonus:20%, RSUs: 530k, signon: 25k - TC: 372k
Twitter offer is in specific team. Hiring manager is really interested in me joining the team and highlighted giving opportunities to grow to staff level.
Current TC at Workday: 285k
YOE : 12
I was in similar position some time back. Two points I hope can add some value to you (Full disclosure: My perspective will obviously have some bias. I do hope you will join us at FB!)
1. TC: First, that’s a really solid E5 package so congrats! FB TC is already slightly higher and FB explicitly has refreshers that is top of industry so the gap will only increase. For reference, an E5 on average will receive 120k worth of refreshers per year, all the way up to 360k a year for stellar performance.
2. Lateral move to future opportunities: Twitter has title inflation that industry aggressively adjusts for. A colleague chose Twitter and loved his experience while there but didn’t have much leverage when companies across the industry forced a down-level. In contrast, I’ve seen most coworkers at FB able to move to another company laterally, including to Google quite often, or even be up-leveled 1. A year at FB then to Twitter may be a faster career path.
Both are great options and companies though. Lucky problem to ponder!
