Received a Senior EM offer from Apple and M0 offer from Facebook. Did not do very well on technical portions in Facebook interviews and was told I was not technically strong enough to make M1 at Facebook. Was told M0 is a TL / EM role with management responsibilities but with some restrictions (seniority make up of team and types of technical decisions). I’d be coming in from EM role at another top tech company.
Don’t know much about leveling at either company. How do these levels compare, in particular for engineering / people leadership career prospects? Also, how bad is it to come in as M0 at Facebook?
Any other advice on relative benefits of Apple vs. Facebook for engineering leadership career growth much appreciated!
Fb M0 = Apple M1
Fb M1 = Apple M2
Fb M2 = Apple M3
If Apple matches/exceeds ur fb comp, i would suggest going with Apple, for the higher manager level. The companies are pretty similar in that they each have 3 levels of managers, then 2 levels of directors, etc.
