Facebook Intern return offer

NASA Sybil
Apr 2 22 Comments

Just got an intern return offer for a E3 new grad position last week. I got EE ratings and thought I did really well on the internship despite the lowball. Recruiter said base and stock are non-negotiable but signing is.

110/150/65 and 10% target bonus

What do you guys think? Also what are some companies you'd recommend to get offers from to better my position in negotiating with Facebook?

I'm interning at Google in the summer btw so definitely looking to leverage their return offer to negotiate as well. Thankfully the FB recruiter let me push my offer decision till 2 weeks after the end of my Google internship.

Right now I'm thinking about trying to interview with Airbnb, Uber, Apple, LinkedIn, Lyft, and a couple HFT and algo trading companies. Is it worth interviewing at Microsoft or Amazon as well?

      But think of all the things they bring to the table! It'll only take them 2 years to start doing quality work!

    Google doesn't get back to their interns about returns until like 1-2 months after the internship. I think your fb offer will expire by then.

    If Fb return offer is considered lowball I wonder if there is any places could offer you a non lowball Offer. Good luck

      No, they want to be paid as much as they can. I know new grads who have gotten offers at 300k TC. Don't be mad cause you're broke.

    That’s the highest intern conversion offer Facebook have for the base. You can potentially go up to 100 for the sign on but you better have had stellar performance during your internship, GE or above. Don’t be greedy.

    I am so impressed by “kids” like you Sybil. Career focused, assertive and thoughtful. (Not a troll)

    This looks like a MA offer. Why do you think this is EE?

    That's the standard EE rating offer. The recruiter is right that base and stock are non-negotiable. Getting a competing offer would allow you to push for 100k sign on.

    Ask for more sign on bonus then take it. I know 75k used to be the minimum intern return offer signing bonus. Very very few companies will offer you more. Google might not even match this.

    Bloomberg lp might give you 160k TC (all cash) plus around 40k sign-on depending on interview performance.
