FB E4 offer

Western Digital JavaKiBava
Mar 7, 2018 25 Comments

I have an offer from fb for E4 and a competing offer from another giant company. I was awarded the following:

Base: 155k
Bonus: 10%
SignOn: 50k.
Stock: 350k.
Experience: 5+ years

How good is this offer ? Any help would be highly appreciated, also I was interviewed for fb in menlo park does it allow me to start bootcamp and work in seattle too ?

I am little bit confused if I need to ask for E5 considering the performance expectations for E4 vs E5.

    You are at the top of the band. This is good because you can’t get a better offer. It’s also bad because your comp won’t increase until you make it to E5, which can take 2 years depending on the timing and refresh cycles.

      Should I ask for E5 ? How will the performance expectations vary for E4 vs E5 ?

      You won't get E5. Your interview is your ask and you got the answer.

      But you could get promoted in a half or a year. If you're that good you'll get promoted.

      Don’t listen to Google guy/gal. Your salary increase might be small if you truly are at the top of the range at E4, but you will still get an increase yearly if you’re performing at or above expectations. Everyone also gets a refresher and that is 100% performance driven and has nothing to do with your current salary.

      Asking for E5 will be optimizing for more $ while amping up the expectations significantly.

    Awarded? You earned it. It's not a prize.

    I think it’s solid but maybe you can push for more RSU by giving them a final number that once you get it you’ll sign. I got similar offer with 1.5 yr exp and competing offer: E4 - 155 / 300 / 50.

      Gosh... E4 with 1.5 yoe?.. OP with 5+ yoe must be E5 at Facebook.

      That’s possible for OP to get E5 just IMO. FYI FB is not hiring E3 at this moment.

      Nope. I had four year exp and was hired as e5. Plenty of incompetent and slack e5 here.

      Interesting... What are the teams with slack e5? Is Live streaming team in that group?

    That's an extremely strong E4 offer. The RSUs are in the E5 territory.

      I thought there was a $300k cap on RSUs for E4

    10% bonus on base? So 15k cash per year? That makes your tc 270k a year. Good.

    A solid e4. If both MPK and SEA have headcount then u may be able to choose teams at both locations during bootcamp, although typically your offer will clearly state which office you are supposed to join
