I am an upper mid level (L7) PMM at Facebook. I like it here overall and have been here about 1.5 years. Director promo, though, will take time...

Been recently approached for two roles
1) Twitter - Director of Marketing, not sure who it reports into yet
2) eBay - Senior Director of Marketing, reports into Chief Marketing Officer

Would you consider either ? TC 450K.
What comp can I expect (I am at $450K and would need 500-600K+ to move)

    I feel like Twitter makes sense to move to if same title as ebay. I feel like Twitter is more relevant than eBay imo

    eBay just shared target comp at $500K all-in. Probably not worth a move eh

      It’s a no brainer. For $50k not worth it

      Main difference is moving from 2 to 8 reports, M2 to Sr Director, and 6 people away from CEO to just 1 person

    • Make sure to find out how many are FTE vs AWF. Lots of on PE groups here are heavy on contractors (80% AWF and only 20% FTE is not uncommon). So keeping talent is difficult at times.

    eBay is putting a ton of money into marketing this year so that might be a nice incentive to join. Otherwise, idk.

    I think Ebay can be a gamble. In the next few years Ebay can either go down a lot or maintain status quo. If going down, be prepared to be fired. These days eBay fires senior leaders quite often. If stable, you can shine in your role. Or happily rest and vest. Don’t expect a huge turnaround story.

    Twitter- no idea. But in my opinion their purpose isn’t close to Ebay’s. Twitter’s future in financial terms may not be a lot different from Ebay.

    Are you an IC or m2? Getting to director at FB is a grind - I’d leave if I were IC and could lead a large team right away

    But the CMO at eBay is great. I've worked with her a lot. And yes the team is going through some changes but you can come in and help mold the processes

    You should remove eBay stock from TC and then compare, it has hardly moved up in last year or so.
