Considering an offer from Facebook, current comp @AAPL
ICT4 7 years work ex, 175k base 20k bonus and total unvested RSU 374k (3/4 pipeline full)
New Offer
E5 , 180k base 40k joining bonus, 15k housing bonus, 320k RSU

I am trying hard to get the RSU up, does this seem fair and what max can I expect ? Does oculus compare to other FB orgs in terms of compensation ?

    Stay with AAPL. VR is dying. Plus oculus is shitty

      They're not the same organization

      I'm assuming OP got that offer from oculus hence the question

      And, AMD is the hottest company on the planet??

      For GPU yes. But you can assume anything if you want to feel good.

      Lol. A little company called Nvidia dominates GPU. AMD has been “also ran” in this ML hype cycle. Dude - don’t delude yourself and GTFO of AMD.

      Btw, Raja Koduri and Jim Keller are both at Intel now. So much for GPU leadership!

      Seriously? Of course I was sarcastic. But thanks for your explanation. Good demo of your EQ

    I thought most of Oculus Research is in Redmond with a small office is Sausalito. Just curious, what’s your domain expertise for which you interviewed at Oculus Research.

    Your offer from Oculus Research doesn’t seem to be that better from your current Apple compensation.

      OP
      I have been in deep negotiations with them but they are not very willing to change the RSUs based on what I have in Apple, the 374 number was based on 167 as stock price which now has increased so I am in the process of trying to get another offer to see if it helps my case

      Did they specifically ask you about un-vested RSUs at Apple before giving you the offer?

      No they didn’t but I had to bring it up as their initial offer was more of a pay cut

      Wow, I thought FB/Oculus pays way more than Apple but it might not be always true then!

      I feel it’s still different between FB and Oculus

      If I remember correctly, I noticed another thread (few weeks back) where a guy from Apple mentioned that s/he got an offer from Oculus Research, Redmond. You might check with that person directly on the details. I think for FB/Oculus, the compensation is same both in Redmond and Menlo Park.

      FB and Oculus have identical comp structure.

    320k is considered low for L5 SWE

      OP
      Do you have an estimate on what I should expect ? Based on other blind posts I was hoping close to 500k but I really don’t want to sound greedy and unreasonable
      Apr 28, 2018
    • New baQn60
      That is avg. 500k is typically phd with 10 - 15 yrs exp
      Apr 28, 2018
    • Mesosphere onsie
      I don’t think in any way $500k is the average for a l5 engineer. You can shoot for $350-$400k in total comp.

      What’s the average TC for L6 and L7 at Oculus?
      Apr 28, 2018
    • New baQn60
      Avg is 300-350 for l5

      Overall feedback (especially for domain interviews) is quite positive. However they didn’t have enough signal for my coding skills and will do an extra 1 hour coding interview.

    I had my interview with Facebook Reality Labs (Oculus Research) yesterday. The questions (domain specific questions) were pretty detailed though I will say the people were very nice. Overall I had a nice interview experience; let’s see what feedback I get from their side.

    Oculus research is now FB Reality Labs. Seems like it is getting more integrated into FB.
