Uber 4/5 sufficient?

Had an interview with Uber ATG recently, for 5a/b (level decided in interview, presumably).

My impression is that I did extremely well on HM, Bar Raiser, and one coding round, quite well on the system design round, and medium at best on the other coding round. Got to a solution, but it wasn't optimal. Talked about trade offs, one way to speed it up a lot (memo/dp), and he pushed hard for a better way but time was basically up so I didn't get there. He also looked at his phone a lot, which completely threw me.

Chances of it being a success if 3/5 were fantastic 1 was good/great, and one okish?

L5, TC ~360k (not SF)

    Should be ok. Might be the deciding factor to level you at 5a instead tho and with that the corresponding TC for it.

      Yeah I thought that could be the case. Definitely better than a rejection. Would be a shame, but as long as the stock doesn't get totally clobbered by IPO, should be a significantly higher TC than mine'll be soon when I hit my 4 year cliff.

    If you accept the offer but join after IPO, will you get the stock by the 409a price or by the new price?

      You get a fixed number of RSUs when you accept.

    Any insight into if Uber can beat a FB E5 offer (185 base, 700k stock (over 4 years, vests immediately))

      It's about a Uber L5A offer so yes. Not going to get it if you end being leveled at L4 though.
