Getting Facebook E5 offer with below rough numbers:
Base: 200K
RSU: 600K
Sign On: 100K

YOE: 12

Any chance FB can get higher offer given competing offer in hand? How much higher they can go and which part of comp they can increase?

    Maxed out as others are saying. How did you get this without competing offers? And from Groupon no less

    That’s the highest they could go at E5. Sign it now before they change their mind :)

      What do you mean "before they change their mind"?

      It was just a joke.

    Are the RSUs spread over 4 years? Spreading the sign on bonus over 4 years, that's a TC of 375k per year. That's great but I was under the impression FB offers go even higher for E5? BTW, congrats on the offer!

      it is 405k because you forgot 15% annual cash bonus. 200*1.15+(700)/4

      That makes sense. I still feel like I've heard of more here on blind

      SnuP18: there will be the outliers and the bluffers, but averagely 400k is the starting of the L6 band. So finding L5 there is rare

      I’m gonna call troll without competing offers. Knowing recruiters we don’t hand out signing like this without other offers

      @ahwbaus
      What if someone is already making more than that at present job! Will you still require competing offer?

      The goal of a company is not to hand out max band offers

    • Amazon cnnfox
      I understand. But if you interview your goal is to make hire-able offer. If a candidate is already making 375K and pass the E5 loop without competing offers will FB not make an offer of 375K tc (excluding signing bonus)?

      Competing offers are the benchmark, not current TC. Competing offers are a great signal for market value of your skills. Current TC could be high for idiosyncratic reasons - stock appreciation, eg

    That’s already the max. Move to Seattle to bump it another 30%.

      more like saving 30% of the numbers, not 30% bump of what is being offered but yeah...

      Can you share what you heard before on blind? Helps me to negotiate better.

    • Google SnuP18
      TBH I don't recall specifics but I would try searching on blind for "E5 Facebook offer" if you haven't already and see what comes up. I also recall at least one case of a friend telling me someone they knew got an E5 offer for 450k (with several competing offers including from Google). However several people here have confirmed 400k is the really high end of E5 so thats probably the most accurate info. Perhaps these anecdotes I've come across are outdated or really extreme cases.

      I do have strong offer and want to see if fb can match that. And so far it's low

      OP
      Thanks, quick blind search revealed lot of offers higher than mine. RSU seen going ng till $700k / 4 yr. Wondering if then reach $800k mark given strong competing offer. Let's see.
