Uber Palo Alto vs FB Seattle compensation difference

I have an offer from Facebook for the Seattle office, and Uber for Palo Alto office.

When the Uber recruiter asked me for other offers, I told her about the FB Seattle offer, but I haven't divulged any numbers.
I told the recruiter that I expect Uber's offer to be more than FB's because Bay area's COL and taxes are higher.

But, the Uber recruiter says their compensation for Bay area and Seattle are the same.
I find it hard to believe.

Can Uber folks that moved from Bay to Seattle (or vice-versa) comment?

    Lies. Compensation is whatever you can negotiate. Bay Area compensation is higher bc no one would live in this overpriced hell-hole if it wasn't.

      Huh! Thanks for the info.

      I knew msft and amzn have different comp values for seattle and bay area.
      Surprised that FB and G do it this way.

      Life is full of surprises, I guess!
