I’m in the process of getting an offer from Snap for an L4 PM role, and I have been asked to share my preferred location, without being told if it will affect my package.
1. Can I expect the standard L4 SWE package: 190k/750:4/0 => TC = 377k?
Or should I expect less as a PM?
2. I got approached by a Pinterest recruiter, but as Snap does not negotiate even with counter-offers, I’m reluctant to start their process. Could it help me, maybe to get one of those rare 50k-100k stock sign-on bonuses?
3. Assuming the package is city-agnostic, should I aim for:
-LA (Better weather, beach, better for fashion sideGigs) or
-SEA (No income tax, NO INCOME TAX, sweeter commute, more tech opps)
A. 1 kid
B. Partner working in Investment Management
C. 1 other kid soon, hopefully
A. Providing for my family
B. Saving (not wasting) as much as possible
C. Getting Fashion Brand and App off-the-ground (sideGig)
D. Buying-to-let multiple houses/flats (sideGig)
Current TC 264k (160/320:4/24)
Every time I visit Seattle I can’t help but wonder how entire population is not hanging themselves with weather like that. Entire city looks like concentrated depression.
