E7 at Facebook, looking for alternatives

I’m fed up with Facebook. I’ve done enough time at Google that I don’t want to return. Apple is not an option. Amazon sounds like hell. I’ll give Netflix a try. Is there anywhere else I should look? Current total comp is 700k, would prefer not to go down when changing jobs. Am a swe doing mobile dev, 20 years industry experience (not all in mobile obvs, but that’s what I want to keep doing)

      Not sure Netflix would pay 700k cash.

      You’d be stunned how bad the culture and engineering quality is at Netflix, if Google and Facebook can’t satisfy you, Netflix will definitely upset you

    Why is Apple not an option? They would pay 700k+ TC for an ICT5 at ur level.

    Anyway there are lots of places u could go, like snap, OCI, Dropbox, twitter, Microsoft, LinkedIn, unicorns, etc.

      Yeah OCI is probably a good place, since they are at early stage of creating a new cloud services.

      OP’s most valued skill seems to be mobile development. Why would a cloud company like OCI offer exceptional salary/stock?

      Apple ICT5 ranges are really broad, still 700k per year (as of the initial grant) seems unrealistic.

      @Cho chang, do you have any data to show otherwise? Which groups offer 700k+ per year for ICT5s?

      Ict6 perhaps. Or some M band.

      Yes, I personally know someone who was E7-9 at fb who switched to Apple as ICT5.

    Side question: with that much experience and level, do you still study algorithms for technical interviews?

    Seems that you don’t want to work just for the money, then avoid Netflix.

      If you’re interviewing why don’t you find out yourself

      My friend couldn't work at Airbnb because of his dog allergies. They just told him to take meds. Weird how your company mission to help people belong

    Sorry for off topic. What is your take on mobile development? Do you think it is comparable in complexity to backend?

    Never thought that mobile developer can be making 700k. What kind of expertise can get you to that level? Or you sort of at Directors level with mostly manager tasks?

    You should already have enough net worth that you can try something you are passionate about. Try a startup?
