I got offer E5 @ FB. 190k base 15 % bonus. 100k signon. 600k RSU.
What do you think.?
20 yoe.
Current TC 250k.


Update: I have interviewed for L6 @ amazon. They came back with L5 and promise of L6 in a year. Ready to give 325 to 350 K TC. I have given these numbers to FB once I cleared HC. FB initial offer was 550k rsu others same. I asked for 600k. Got approved same day.

Cleared for linkedin staff, uber sr software ang google onsites. But linkedin and google want me to join on H1b receipt. I don't want to do that. Differed interviews until premium processing started again.

      @Yasha thanks. I have already accepted offer. How difficult to move to E5 to E6 and how many review cycles expected.

      E6 might be really tough to just keep your head above water. Strong offer and and level is appropriate

      I am not E6, but from the company guideline, you need to consistently perform at the next level in 2-3 cycles, 6m each, to get promoted.

      Coming in as an external E6 is tough. For long term success, you’re better off ramping as a 5 and getting promoted

      Anyone who suggests going for the higher level usually doesn't know what they're talking about. Getting PIPed is not worth it. Usually companies will put you at the level they want you to come in at that they think you'll be successful.

      Many companies do not count international experience, pretty sure this is the norm? Don't mean to discriminate and I was congratulating op; this is badass.

      I don't see how that holds much water. Just depends on the company. OP could've worked at Google in another country for what we know.

      Some people have privileged, linear view of life. They assume people end up in bay area as soon as they wean off the studies.

    You know the recruiter is lying to you when they tell you your offer is on the higher end of the level then you see someone else get the same level with a significant amount more than what you got. #notbitter

      OP
      I think so. Actually my linkedin onsite was scheduled before FB onsite. But just two days to onsite, they said they can't wait until h1b transfer. So I have to cancel linkedin onsite and possibly re-schedule early next year when premium processing restarted again. FB and Amzn were ready to wait until h1b transfer. So gone ahead and cleared onsites. Signed FB offer. They have started h1b transfer process with tentative start date in april.
