Sharing my recent FB&G comp + AMA about interviews
I have had a lot of helps from the community throughout my job search. I wanted to give back by sharing my comp and do an AMA about interviews. I did not sign any NDA about comp so I assume it's ok to share.
1.6 yr exp in U.S., Canadian bachelor in CS. Yes, I posted recently and asked about negotiation and pissed off some people because I thought my initial offers were low balling. But anyway ...
Facebook E4, Google L3
Facebook 1st offer: 140 / 220 / 0
Google 1st offer: 140 / 230 / 0
Facebook 2nd offer: 150 / 240 / 0
Google 2nd offer: 145 / 300 / 30
Facebook 3rd offer: 160 / 300 / 50
1. What's the interview question?
Signed NDA. What I can share is Google questions were about medium while Facebook was medium/easy (leetcode levels). No brain teasers.
2. How did you prepare?
What really helped me and I think you should do if you are doing a system design interview is getting a mocked system design interview. It helps a ton.
3. How did you negotiate?
Someone on blind pointed me to this post which helped a lot. https://medium.freecodecamp.org/ten-rules-for-negotiating-a-job-offer-ee17cccbdab6
Thank you again Blind! Feel free to ask or PM. I might not be able to get back really quick though. Also please don’t ask me to break my NDA.
