    FB E5 is harder to get than LinkedIn Senior. Both have great benefits, LinkedIn has slightly better. Due to level difference, FB may offer only slightly higher TC. Both are good, your decision should depend on where you are at in your life, and how involved you want to be with work.

      Yes really, kuvTb I was at LinkedIn before and the bar there is a joke. Money-wise LI covers a wider range, but not by much

      LinkedIn Senior is certainly a wide band. But I would say Facebook E5 on average would be equivalent to LinkedIn Staff

    Working in LinkedIn data infra.

    LinkedIn infra has everything open sourced, you gets exposure, visibility, and work at scale. LinkedIn infra is also undergoing major re-architecting, all teams, so tons of interesting projects.

      Will definitely match FB e5, but won’t be higher. I’d suggest you ask FB for the number first and argue with LinkedIn with that

    Please keep in mind that industry considers LinkedIn levels 1-2 below Facebook’s.

    Even if LinkedIn matches your FB offer, this is an important thing to keep in mind.

      That’s only true for managers, as LinkedIn usually have smaller teams

    I’d say e5 can pay higher than linkedin senior.

    LinkedIn if you want a life outside work. If your interviews went really well, LI should be able to match FB offer, even if it means bumping you to staff.

      It's 100% performance based so refershers are not guaranteed but if you perform well you can expect at least 100k a year. If you get placed at staff if will be more.
