Fresh PhD from top 5 CS school. No experience, undergrad and then PhD. Good publication/research record and position related to the area.

What is expected offer at Fb ( AML), Apple (Siri) and may be Google, not sure about it though.

Basically want to know what a good offer ( base/RSU/Sign on) should be in this case. Dont want to unnecessarily haggle a lot.

    With a PhD they'll likely start you out at the level above entry-level. There you'll be competing with people just 2 years out of undergrad and 90% chance the PhD won't help you any further.

      From several other posts it seems you definitely start 1 level above, like E4 at Fb or T4/L4 (forgot what its actually) at Google

    It’s same as bachelors. PHD doesn’t matter no one will even ask you about it or will give a damn

    Good offer would be 350. Realistic offer would be 250. The offer that will make you sad is around 150.

      Do you mean these numbers including sign on or just base + rsu + cash bonus.
