What is the comp range for base and RSUs

Pros:

- people seem to be very nice and genuinely like each other and like working there
- still seem like a small company and a lot to do. Particularly, if they monetization then it would be massive
- genuinely interesting problems there (and small enough for you to actually do it, but big enough for there to be really experienced people to learn from)

Cons:

- weak valuation growth; not sure how much progress they have made in 2 years
- competitors inching in, instagram, Houzz etc
- not sure if they can maintain this. All of my friends make / female have churned from Pinterest

    I believe the current default offer tends to be ~200K base + $1M RSUs for L5. Range depends on the other offers you have + where you are coming from.

      That's 450 TC... Is L5 same as Google L5?

      Our managers claims it's slightly higher than Google L5.
      Of course, remember that our RSUs are still paper money.

      Refresh yes (but not as good as initial grant).
      Bonus, not really.

      Take the $1m rsu value and half it’s value, or more. It’s a totally fictitious number and you should discount it heavily because of risk factors.

    Their refusal to IPO is akin to management spitting in the faces of their employees.

      I don’t blame them I don’t think their metrics are nearly good enough to sustain an IPO

      Premature IPO would be a poor outcome for everyone. Most employees understand this and prefer to grow the revenue more. TC interview misconstrued the company position btw.

      Everybody says that. Why? It's not like IPO alone killed Twitter or Snapchat.

    Judging. By open position calls I’ve recently received from Pinterest I believe they are working towards IPO
