Amazon HailAr!!
Mar 15, 2018 35 Comments

Got an acceptance from Fb for E5 SDE role. What do I expect comp wise? Dont have competing offers.
My current comp is in 180K range.
Location: Seattle.

Also, will Salary differ if I move to Bay area vs Seattle for FB? I heard FB salaries are not location specific atleast in US.

    FB salaru s are definitely location specific. There will be a cost of living adjustment depending on where you work and your signing bonus could also be affected

      Austin is about 10-15% less and London is about 30% less.

      London makes sense because it’s in a different country. Didn’t know Austin had SWEs. How about Boston?

      I actually am a new hire at Facebook. I do agree that Seattle and MPK have the same salary but I don't work out of either of those offices. When comparing salaries with others this was my experience. I was told by my recruiter that the compensation team does in fact take location into consideration.

      But cost of labor is lost specific right? Cost of labor is cheap in third world country so salaries would be dependent on location

      OP
      What I meant is, do the stocks vest like Amzn? Or is vesting spread evenly every year?

      No, they’re vested linearly

      Amazon is the only major company with a back weighted vesting schedule and cliff these days. Even snap has moved to match the market.

      The worst part about amzn comp is, u gotta wait till year 3 and 4 to get real value of stocks.. till then your salary remains kinda static..
      When I joined amzn, I thought I was making good money till I realized what Goog and Fb can pay.. even If I go to L6, I wont be able to then match with fb.

    OP
    Is 300K a norm at FB?
    Surprised actually, i havent seen new hire L5s at amzn breach 300k mark.. in fb if it is a norm, Amzn surely have to update their comp model.

    Do they know your current level? Might lowball you if that's the case since they're familiar with comp ranges at that level. Also, if you don't have any other offers on the table
