Google & FB refreshers (L4 & E4)

How much are their refreshers each year. What's the range, normal, and formula (reg*pref*etc)?

If possible how likely is it for someone to get a higher x based on performance?

FB recruiter said 100-140. Is that real?
What is Google's?

Just trying what to guestimate for I can add to future years TC.
If you also happen to also know E5/L5, doesn't hurt.

Thanks

    Sorry a dump question but at the end of an year of joining, facebook/google employee gets about $25k(100/4) refreshers on top of 15% bonus and RSU’s ?
    Is that how the refresher’s work?

      Facebook bonus is 10%, G is 15%.
      Yes, that’s how it works.

    • If someone started in 2019, when will first refreshers come in?

      at G you won’t get refreshers for the year you join in, so it is best to join at the end of the calendar year

    • But you get it at end of year 2?

      If you join Jan 2019 you won’t get a refresher for 2020, only for 2021. Managers have discretionary funds to make exceptions

    Refreshers at both places are around 80k if you get meets expectations. If you get higher ratings (easier at FB due to more opportunities), you get higher refreshers (much higher at FB because of higher multipliers than G).

      OP
      Thanks
      What are the multiples at each place?
      Any guesses on how likely to get higher multiple (like is it 50-50 at Facebook to get higher multiple)?

      Not that much higher at FB. It is all based on formula now, nothing to see here.

      What is 2EE equivalent for L3?
      May 15
    • Google kingslayr2
      I got 75k with EE SEE at L3 (but modeled for 67.5, rest is discretionary). 2EE at L3 is probably 60k.
