Sep 28, 2018 16 Comments

I am SE3 with total 7+ years of experience.

5 (India) + Masters + 2 years in US

Current TC - Base - 140K and 110K stocks vested over 3 years

Getting E4 offer from Facebook. TC- 155/280/60

Want to know what’s difference between E4 and E5 level?

Have onsite with Google and Uber. If i get counter offers is there chance to negotiate and get offer for E5 at FB?

    Non US is typically discounted by half. I don't think FB would give you E5.

      Doesnt matter if it was in India or US. It matters what kind of experience you gained. For example I could have spent 7 yrs as a web programmer at a city library supporting an outdated-IE only webpage. Doesnt mean i should be hired as E5 mobile eng at FB

    Even with a higher level competing Uber offer and the highest Facebook would go for me was 160/300/100 E4.

    I don't think you can negotiate level. You might be able to negotiate salary.

    E5 at FB is super stressful. Take E4, the title doesn’t matter as FB promotion is extremely fast.

      Dude, the salary difference is way higher in E5. 180/600/100

      That’s the higher end.

    That's a solid upper end E4 offer. E5 would start a bit higher than that, like 165/300, so you certainly have room to negotiate up with competing offers

    Level is probably not negotiable though

      E4 max is around 160/300/100. This is pretty close to max

      What was the final offer? Did you ask FB about leveling?

      No I didn’t have anything on table to renegotiate
