I got an offer from FB at E5. I'm contemplating of accepting the offer, but I don't want to join FB any time soon since I'm in the middle of a project. How long can I postpone the start date? Can I push it to next year?

Btw, TC = 190K base, 550K RSU, 50K sign on bonus

    I suspect you can push it to any time within 12 months of offer receipt. Keep in mind RSUs are calculated based on the share price for a period before your start date, not offer receipt. I know people who have delayed in similar situations. Ask your recruiter. (After 12 months you likely have to re-interview.)

      I'm hired as a specialist i.e. a team has been matched with my skills. Would that make any difference?

      Maybe. Ask your recruiter.

      That’s what I’ve been saying: FB base maxes out at 180 for E5 unless you’re preallocated.

      If you are L5, Google might be already paying you so much. I think you can nego better.

    Wouldn’t recommend delaying: the stock is soaring. Also, G can kill you project anytime and waste your time&effort. Why worry so much about finishing the project?
    Btw, BA or Seattle?

    G@Seattle. The project I'm working on is interesting, I started it on my own so I want to finish it before I leave. I don't worry much if the project gets cancelled. There are many other things that need my attention, my current project is an excuse to not look at them.
