    That’s a very good offer considering that the stock is down a lot right now.

      FB is known to promote fast, in fact, you have no choice at E4 but to get promoted or let go after a certain period of time.

      Don’t second guess yourself, everyone has impostor syndrome sometimes. Also, I think you have 33 months to get to the next level. Oh and moving up in levels has less to do with pure coding ability and more to do with how you work in groups, how you’re proactive, lead, mentor, communicate, etc. if you have work experience, this should not be a blocker for you.

    Damn is it normal for a company to ask you to rescind all other interviews? That seems sketchy as fuck

      If they are willing to give 2x initial comp why not. Once I was given an offer I was requested to cancel all other onsites and decline other offers.

      increase some rsu/bonus only if I cancel other interviews. No negotiate exp before, is fb’s ask illegal?

      It’s not illegal. Ofcourse if you don’t accept offer you are free like a bird to interview. If you accept the offer then you still are free as a bird to interview with others without letting them know

      What’s wrong with FB?
      Nov 9, 2018
    • Facebook dwws74
      It depends who you ask. I thought work life balance wasn’t great, the PSC experience is stressful, there are lots of shitty projects and manager turnover in some teams (I experienced that).. the concept of Impact can be subjective enough that politics easily slips in to affect your livelihood. Also lots of shitty code and hacky garbage, but that’s almost every tech company. Mainly though it’s that the blue app has harmed the world.

      thx! should I do 2 years in fb and re-interview for g, or just take the risk to continue finish g now and take g offer if I got it? worst case, I may lose the increased offer and fail at g at same time. fb’s e4 title sounds good, and g properly only give me l3
