FB decided they’re moving forward with an offer for M1 (level 6). Google is giving me the answer early this week (expecting it to be positive).
Now FB wants me to tell them my comp expectations. First question: should I really give them a number? What would be a good negotiation strategy?
My TC at Apple has been ~600k for the past two years. I’ve been thinking of asking them to match my unvested stocks (~600k), a base salary of $240-250 (my target is $230), and I’m open minded about a hiring bonus.
Are these numbers realistic?
They can’t ask your current salary (and won’t) but you can give them ammo to work i.e. comp expectations, invested stock, bonuses you’ll be missing out on, competing offers. All of that information is wildly helpful to the recruiter in getting you an offer you’ll actually take.
