What's the average promotion time from e4 to e5 (senior) SDE at Facebook? Is e4 or e5 considered career position? Getting to senior SDE at Amazon is a shitshow while I see people doing that transition at Facebook regularly under 4 years. Is that standard or are those people exceptionally good?

    You are expected to go from E4 to E5 in 33 months. If it doesn't seem like you'll make it, you get managed out.

    Thanks for replies guys! What is the ratio of people who make it vs being managed out?
    Also, is the e5 career level then? Or is there expectation to go to next level in some time?
