I got an offer from FB. E5. 200K/700K/15%/100K

Thanks to blind for this offer.

I did not know about leetcode before joining blind. It took almost 1.5 years to get to 500+ leet code questions. I know there are some intelligent folks who can do leetcode faster. But those who can not, just keep practicing, and you will certainly get it after you cross that 500 leetcode mark

YOE : 10+

All the best

    You got “selected in”? Where are you from? Just curious.

      Well “selected by” would sound more correct compared to “selected in” which seems like the wrong preposition. Most common would just be “I got an offer from”.

    Honest question, does doing 500 LC in 1.5 years work better than, say, grind 100 in a couple of months?

    I feel like unless I focus and work harder a shorter time, I forget stuff and I'm not at my top.

      Probably went over the ones he did previously as well/became very familiar with some patterns and what to expect.

      Also holy shit, you do a 100 in a couple of months?
      Oct 3
    • I've done 100 in a week. But then again, I went to MIT.

      Technically it was 300 in a month.

      Nice! That’s crazy. Were you working or in school?

      Also, did you do a 100 in a week because you went to MIT or are you privileged when it comes to IQ and can grasp concepts easily (and also got into MIT as a consequence)?

    • Also did 100 in a week. Didn’t need to go to MIT for it.

    430k is definitely good TC

    • StubHub / Eng WIID54
      Sorry if it’s dumb question, I am intern, how above numbers convert into 430k ?
      Oct 3
    • Twitter pNAK04
      200 base + 30k bonus + 25k joining bonus for each year + 175k in RSU per year = 430k TC per year

      ^ what he said. On that note, the signing bonus and stocks are divided over 4 years because that's the typical vesting schedule. In reality, your signing bonus might be fully available by year 1 or 2 depending on company
      Oct 3
    • Samsung / Product MtuC05
      Is the signing bonus split over 4 years at FB?
      Oct 3
    • 2017 post so things might have changed. Apparently you get half when you sign the offer, half on your first pay "Why does fb give returning interns such a large (100k) signing bonus? (Engineering)"

    Congrats! Is that equity number per year, or total equity in offer over 4 years?

    • AT&T MsdR32
      Haha, I'm sure it's total over 4 years. No way op is pulling just about 1 million per year
