I’m an ex FB E6 engineer currently working in a startup (posting from a friends account). I’ve tried interviewing for Google L6 and Uber 5B a couple of times, but always end up with L5 at Google and 5a at Uber. I usually prep really well for the interviews, but out of the 5-6 interviews one of them ends up average and as result I don’t make it. People who have successfully interviewed for these levels, could you share some advice/prep strategy?

- LinkedIn / Eng abcd🤓moreUber are so full of themselves. 5a compensation is way lower than other companies. I got a $300k offer from them recently, and no matter how many competing offers I give them, they wouldn’t budge (I brought 400k+ competing offers).
- Uber lLjv00Uber has an anti discrimination system in place to ensure men and women are paid exactly the same down to the Millicent to combat all the sexual harassment claims. What they offer you is computed by a third party based on many factors but most important factor being equal pay, company policy is zero deviation from thatJun 16, 2018 1

Recruiters who manipulate and lie are what causes women to not negotiate. Women naturally trust easier than men. It’s not just a negotiation piece, when a recruiter lies and says “these are the best and final numbers” I think women believe that.
If you want to make real change, gut your recruiters.Nov 5, 2018 3
- Uber CJGW63Both companies tend to downlevel you a bit. Uber has better opportunities to quickly bounce back. I took 5a and making my way up.
