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?

- WeWork / Eng vMuB14Not true. I was offered E6. Think twice if you want E6, tho. The responsibilities and expectations can be brutal.
- Facebook whodatttHitting 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
- 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)
