Any tip on how to get the figures right when negotiating salary as an SE with the BigTech companies (Facebook , Google, Microsoft, etc) in an area (In my case DC) other than CA without without being short-changed ? . I am asking because I am aware that the hiring companies put cost of living into consideration.

    Been there. The only way to negotiate with them effectively is to have competing offers from other "BigTech" who they see as a talent poaching threat.

      Do you actually have to show them the offer? will they ask you to show it?

      Yes. Google recruiters are, in my experience, shameless enough to ask for proof.

    Target a TC and create a grid for possible ways to get there (base, bonus, equity)/yr. Know your worth and always negotiate, competing offer or not.
