Question about levels at LinkedIn, Facebook, and Microsoft

I'm an L4 data scientist at Google. I'm planning to switch companies currently and have a few questions:
1. I'm interviewing for a staff data scientist role at LinkedIn. According to levels.fyi (https://www.levels.fyi/?compare=LinkedIn,Google,Microsoft&track=Software%20Engineer) this seems to be mostly equivalent to L5 at Google. Is that right or should I have aimed higher?
2. I'm also interviewing at Facebook for an E5 role. Should I have pushed for E6?
3. A recruiter from Microsoft contacted me about a Data & Applied Scientist role. Is this equivalent to SDE (levels 59-60) at Microsoft? (https://www.levels.fyi/?compare=LinkedIn,Google,Microsoft&track=Software%20Engineer)

    I don't know the answer to your question but one thing I know.

    Linkedin inflates their titles more than pornstars inflate the silicon.

    Staff here spans L5/Low L6. We may inflate title but the comp is easier to map

      Thanks for the reply. It seems from levels.fyi that LinkedIn staff is comparable to high L4 -L5 at Google.

      Perhaps...that’s kind of fuzzy. I can at least say not comp wise. For staff swe offers are 350-450+ which maps to my prev comment

      The comp sounds good. Thanks for letting me know so that I know what to ask if I get an offer. :)
