Tired of interviewing

Facebook Pack-Man
Sep 24 60 Comments

I want to move out of Fb, but I am not getting any good opportunities outside.
Rejected: Nuro, small startup
Awaiting: Airbnb(All rounds done) and Google(awaiting hiring committee)
Companies not interested in my profile: Netflix, Cruise, Pinterest, Lyft, TripAction
I am not interested in: Amazon, Apple, MS, Citadel

i currently have a startup offer, but it is a low ball offer and not sure if startup will succeed.

Phd + 6+ YOE
TC: 380k+
Any guidance? Thoughts?

      @easzss, depends on who you ask, I guess?

      I tend to confront a sad situation with humor since it's been a couple of days now. But too soon?

    You are still waiting for results. Don't lose hope
    Hopefully something will work out

    Finding a new job at senior level is hard. Keep pushing!

      Not tried that, but I was hoping after the MS takeover it would get worse

      LinkedIn remained separate even after Microsoft acquisition. Great culture, perks, WLB and high TC. Check levels.fyi for LinkedIn Staff+, which maps to L5, L6

    Why don’t you just try to find a better team? Or are you hunting for better TC? Your TC is already impressive

      The culture at FB has changed. So not trying internally. Outside exploring comparable salaries

    could it be because of higher comp? Have you tried snap, uber, twitter, oracle cloud

    • Facebook Pack-Man
      OP
      Snap is not interested. Uber didn’t have headcount. I didn’t try twitter. Oci, I don’t want to try as oracle culture is not that great

    Maybe that's the situation where you have high TC and top company, no place to jump? Start your own company?

      I thought about that and I have an idea too. The problem is finding funding

    I don’t want to work in the finance industry. Wlb is poor and the work is not that interesting usually

      There are a lot of interesting challenges and opportunities at financing. Dont underestimate it.

    Sometimes directly reaching out to a recruiter or HM helps.

    I have had cases where online application said rejected but then recruiter or HM reached out themselves. Try reaching out through LinkedIn?

      I have tried that multiple times. But nothing seems to work out

    What level are you in fb?

    I thought fb is one of the most innovative companies, especially for ML, maybe other than busy schedule and pressure, perhaps nothing bad about it.

      Are you sure? Do you know the comp range on good authority or are you making a smart guess based on blind data?

      I’m planning to interview at FB and a few others in six months, basically after I get my bonus at Uber. But I’m being paid much higher than the range you mentioned (and I’m working at a comparable level at Uber). Even after the drop in stock price it might not be worth my time to even interview if the comp is so low.

      The comp at L6 varies widely

    Citadel and hedge funds will beat your comp -why not go there ?

      OP
      Most of the companies are hesitant to proceed due to compensation. I did get some offer, but they were lowball offer, not even matching my base. DM me for details

      Also the headcount position in most companies at end of year is not good

    What about Expedia? Banking? Going back to Academia?

      Banking is not interesting in terms of the work. Academics is not an option. Expedia? Any specific reason

      Can’t answer why expedia. I just said an option. Why you want to leave from fb? People will not be able to give you different option

    How many yoe at FB ? Is your comp high mainly because of negotiation with competing offers prior to joining FB?

    I am surprised that Lyft and Cruise are not interested in you especially you are working on infra team at fb. They are hiring C++ experts for AV.
