      OP
      Sf for Pinterest, tentatively Menlo Park for FB. I live in SF so would need to commute unless I picked an sf team in FB bootcamp

      OP commuting is hell. Take Pinterest for quality of life alone.

      Looks like someone sort of put up the Pinterest offer for me with some slightly altered details, so I guess my work is done

      I did. I am the creator of Reffo and trying to promote it. Please give me any feedback!

      I can attribute it to you once you sign up and let your add the Facebook one

      I like the overall design, you should be proud

      Thanks took me 25 days but I'm just scratching the surface of what I want to do with it. I really want to give the leverage back to candidates by providing education about stocks and negotiation tips etc...

    Pretty strong offers for 4 yoe. I’d have chosen FB if I were you.

    FB, Pinterest is shit

      And why is that

      Your hiring committee is the most biased group of folks I’ve ever interviewed with.

      No where else have I felt more attacked for my age and ethnicity. I literally stood out like a sore thumb simply because of age and ethnicity differences, which ultimately didn’t land me the position despite my making it to the final rounds.

      I’m sorry for the bad experience you had. Did you share the feedback with the recruiter?

    • Lyft pogs-rule
      Yup.
      She even called me and I answered but she just kept quiet and hung up.

    What is the level for both offers? I would choose FB if I were you.

    • Twitch AFTX42
      OP
      Equivalent to fb E4 at both. I suspect these are close to top of band so I’m feeling uncertain about how much I can press for further but I figure there has to be some wiggle room

      I think the caps on stock are 450 and 600 for L4 at these two companies.

  • Microsoft / Finance Dunph
    I thought Pinterest can offer 600k stock?

    Pinterest will likely have better WLB. You can probably negotiate the Pinterest offer up since you have FB offer.

    are you a sde2 at twitch? whats your current TC?
    Feb 28 3
    • Twitch AFTX42
      OP
      Yes, my “TCT” is less than 240 though different due to stock appreciation.
      Feb 28
    • Amazon / Eng DQgE34
      nice congrats on the upgrade!
      Feb 28
    • Twitch AFTX42
      OP
      Thank you! although I am sad the industry incentivizes churn. I love my current team like family and believe in the company (both twitch and amazon) but we all have to play the cards we’re dealt!

    Pinterest just filed for going ipo. I would pick Pinterest for the crazy upside on the stocks! Those options might very well pay off big time if the ipo goes well!
    Feb 28 3
    • Microsoft / Eng h1bReceipt
      But you don't know how the stock looks like after the vest period. It will probably be a year and would be lower than ipo price

    • Twitch AFTX42
      OP
      They’re offering RSUs now instead of options but that’s only a plus imo. I am bullish on Pinterest as a profitable unicorn but I am naturally guarded about the potentially volatility and uncertain liquidity compared to fb. I do live in SF though which is weighing on me a lot

      Unfortunately I don’t think Pinterest stock will have much upside

    Do they mention refresher in the offer?
    Feb 28 2
    • Twitch AFTX42
      OP
      No written offers yet since it’s pending an acceptance but I included the quoted refresher amounts. Standard 4 year schedule for both so like a 100k refresher would be 25k vest in the next year, etc

    • Square / Eng sj42hc
      I actually don't remember seeing any refresher information in any contracts offered to me.

    Join FB and move to Menlo park/south bay.
