Recently received one fb offer. Per recruiter the feedback signal is very strong positive. But it is still e5 instead of e6(Yoe 7-8). Asked around was told that fb never offer e6 for external hire. Is that true?

    Not true. I was offered E6. Think twice if you want E6, tho. The responsibilities and expectations can be brutal.

      Firsthand. Worked as E6 for 2 years. No previous faang experience.

      Senior SWE so similar to E6 at FB. Much more freedom to do things without worrying about “making an impact” and you can work at 50% capacity of what’s expected at FB and everyone is happy. TC noticeably smaller mostly due to lack of liquid stock.

      E6 is Staff SE at FB, but I get what you are saying

      Do you have kids? Is E6 bad for engineers with families?

      Would you accept an offer lower than your W2?

      Many take a lower offer. These are sort of golden handcuffs. If your compensation is much more than what the market pays primarily due to the fact that you got lucky, doesn’t mean other wise employers would take the bait.

      I don't doubt many people accept lower offers to move to Google or Facebook looking forward for future stock refreshes and better benefits.

      But, I would never switch from Google to Facebook (and probably from Facebook to Google) without a pay bump. It makes no sense.

      In general you are right and that is human nature. People might be more enthusiastic about better work or WLB. This doesn’t just apply to folks moving to F/G but any company in general. Also, I don’t think switching between G/F would get you a significant bump anyways unless it’s a level increase assuming you make close to your top of market. You would need to go a competitor that is a bit talent starved (not the top 2)

    Hitting the ground running as E6 is very hard so you really take a risk. Also at 7-8 yoe I would say generally E5 is correct

      Why is E6 hard to hit the ground running?

    7 YOE is typically 5. 6 is possible, but as WeWork mentioned, expectations are very high.

    Not true. You can find 3-5 yoe e6 internally.
