How to ask for E5 at Facebook?

Uber giggled
Sep 6 12 Comments

Had an interview at Facebook with 3 rounds of system design interviews. I told the recruiter that I am looking at a position at E5, but was eventually offered at E4.

The recruiter told me that levelling up after hiring committee is not impossible. I need to give them my counter offers. I do have some other senior offers.

What is the chance that I get levelled up? Are there other ways to help me in this case?

YoE 3.5

    Wait 3 rounds of system design??(e6 gets 2) If they give you 4, there is no way getting 5, you exhausted all chances this time.
    Accept 4, or try in a year again.

    Focus on comp and not level.

      Comp is associated with level. There is fine line.

    If the offers are higher, give it a shot, otherwise your SOL.
