- Facebook MNjV57Its better to join at E4 and negotiate a higher comp.. Joining at E5 is risky and I see a lot of industry hires being non-performant at E5, in spite of having 7+ years of work experience. It takes time to understand the tools, process and culture of a company and there is no breathing room for that at E5. Strong E4 industry hires make to E5 after two reviews which is roughly 1 year.
- Facebook / Eng UWBE87Expected for new grads (E3) to move to E4 within 2 years or they just start getting evaluated at E4 until they're weeded out
- It's kinda good to join as an E4. You have a clear opportunity for quick promotion at lower expectations. If you came in as E5 you'd be stuck with the comp you were offered indefinitely.
