Still don’t have the numbers but was given positive news. I’m now trying to understand what to expect for senior software engineer/ staff software engineer

I’m clueless about what to expect from them. I see around 180k as being a good base. But not sure of what to ask for in equity.

Current TC: 165k / year
Experience: 7-8 years
Location: Bay Area
Could someone guide me?

    Let them give you numbers. Look at offer numbers on blind based on your level and the numbers offered to you. You'll get an idea.

    Congrats on the offers!

      It is better to take this approach, get numbers, and post first. Otherwise, you may be tempted to give an answer right away. They are good at pressuring for an answer. Talk with your family (and us🙂) first before deciding and we can see which of the numbers have more room.

      This helps a lot. I did look up levels.fyi but it’s hard to confidently ask for those numbers considering my current TC. 😂

    Did you disclose your current TC. I never do that. No matter how much they pressure me to disclose that info. That way they can't say what you are asking is too much.

      Didn’t do that. That would be terrible.

    check levels.fyi. Let us know the offers once you got them. I bet Facebook will be strongest, both Twitter and FB definitely 300k++

      Lots of levels.fyi info is very incorrect. It’s clear half the people don’t know how comp actually works. Some people also base numbers based on original offers that have had massive stock gains. It’s clear that you aren’t getting that amount of stock. If someone posts that they have 75k RSUs a year but the stock doubled and they are now getting 150k you aren’t getting 150, you are getting 75 because that’s your walk away target for that level.
