TC Expectations for Google and Facebook

Bloomberg humans
Jul 29, 2018 32 Comments

hey guys, Will appreciate some feedback on tc numbers I should be expecting. FB recruiter vaguely mentioned 190K base/450K RSU & potential sign on. Waiting on fb to give final numbers for E5. Also cleared Goog L5 & waiting to get final numbers soon. Recruiter mentioned targeting around 400K TC w/o including sign on candidly. Goog and Fb recruiters know about my competing opportunities. Will be talking to both recruiters soon. Excited to join either of them though as both have amazing engg talent.

Current TC : $270K
YOE : 8 years

ps: Anyone interested in how I prep’d, I’ll be writing a separate post soon. Will definitely give back to the community.

    $300k TC without bonus is the standard offer these days. If you get $400k TC that would be insane. Let us know

      Just base + Rsu. Add $30k for annual bonus

      So basically you mean 300k not including sign on is standard. Yes agree and actually its on the low side. I think 350k is more common
