    Similar experience to me in in terms of years.

    I got an E4 offer of 160k/300k/100k signing. Not sure where this sits in the band though.

      100k signing? Respect.

      Yeah, I'm not sure how to really calculate that in to TC.

      From what I've heard, average E5 tends to be around 170k/400k or so. Hopefully someone at Facebook currently might be able to give more concrete figures.

      That's about what I've heard as well.

      Does the offer have golden handcuffs @ 1yr mark, or did they add on more stipulations since the signing was so large? Since signing is taxed so high I'd say ask them to double it and look for another job after you break the golden handcuffs. Would be a great way to make ~500k in a year!

      Thanks for the information, I'll negotiate hard on my signing if I continue forward.

      The stipulations are the same regardless of amount, and yeah I think you no longer have to pay any back after the year mark.

      Haha, nah man it's a huge pay increase for me, Facebook was my number one choice, so pretty happy to just have landed a job there.

      I also had a competing offer from Uber, which I think was the primary reason behind the signing bonus since, since from my understanding they couldn't match salary in the E4 band.

      Good luck! Hope you get a killer offer.
