Base: 110k
Equity: 100k
No sign on.

They are forming a new team. It's lower than my current compensation (base plus bonus wise) Recruiter says final offer.

I'm surprised as to why they offered me number lower than my current comp.

Interview feedback was all great. Did two phone screens and 4 onsite rounds. Did additional with director post on-site.

      200+ per year would be great for 1.5 years of experience, no?

      Caveat is that anyone who joined FB or G out of undergrad is already close to L4 promo. Otherwise 200 is alright.

    Is this dev/eng? This is for E3. Seems a bit low.

    Ask for $200k stock
    and $30k sign on.

    Base is good.

    Base is good, stock is low.

    I joined as E3 after 1.5 years of experience. Initial offer was
    112k base
    15k sign on
    150k stock

    Negotiated to 35k sign on, 200k stock

      That 100 was after negotiation. The first figure was 75k. I'm taken aback that they don't honor my current comp numbers.

    To my knowledge, if you get one more round interview after onsite, you prolly don't have a strong hire feedback but still pretty good. So is phone interview. This may result in a lower offer.

      I thought it was always 1 phone interview before onsite. When would you get another one?

      Even if the post onsite phone interview is non-technical?
      Jan 24, 2018
    • Facebook Pbuj80
      I'm afraid yes. Basically in interviews they are checking the boxes. They found one of them was not strong enough but others look good so the follow up one is particularly on that.

      If I were in your position, I would reach out to google, amazon, LinkedIn, Uber, and tell them i have an offer from fb(not tell them the numbers though) and expedite interviews and get offers.

      No it isn’t, 221k would be really good TC for an E3.

    IC2? Also, where (city)? Seems low, but could be in line with a sub-5yr exp.

    Can you give us more details?

    Sounds like a good offer for your experience. Most likely you are joining as E3. May be you can get 120k equity but that's it.
    People that suggest 200k and so on are talking about high E4 grant.

    I would recommend to focus on negotiating sign on, that's the easiest for recruiter to give. 35k would be great

      Not true. Many L3s and E3s now have close to 200 in equity. L4 is 300-500 standard

      Wow if that's so then offers really moved up since I joined. I got 320k initial offer and renegotiated it to 400k for E5. That's with multiple competing offers too...

      Stocks have just run up. Google used to offer 250 standard RSUs, worth 300k today.

      If you’re homeless after making >160k per year, then making 200k isn’t going to fix the real problem.
