TC: 203K
YOE: 1.8(20 months)
Was a TT this year so I have 97 stocks ready to vest until July 2021.
Location: Seattle

FB offer:
160k base
320k stocks
50k joining bonus
First-year compensation will be 313.5 k if I just meet expectations.

Uber offer:
175k base
345k stocks
50k joining bonus over 2 years
First and second-year compensation will be 303k if I meet expectations.

Both have similar performance-based bonuses. And Seattle is the location for both.
I will be changing jobs in July so probably Uber stock will be stable enough and I will get RSUs based on the price on 15th July.

Initial offers were lower from both, this is the 2nd offer.

      If you are proud of the product that Facebook is building today then sure, go full steam ahead. But I'm pretty sure that deep down you know that Facebook main product is a shitshow that exacerbate the worst part of society. It's a tool of mass control where billions of people lose their time everyday just so that a couple slumbags can sell more ads and increase their TC. I know you know that when you are trying to justify that sweet TC.

      Say what you will about FB. I can get connected to ppl back in Korea without making too much efforts because of FB. Millions of small local businesses can have a chance in internet era because of FB/IG/WA. Ppl w rare diseases can find each other
      because of FB. I left FB job, but still love FB.

    Less than 2 years experience and $300k in TC. Either OP is James Bond or I am working for the wrong company.

  • What level is the FB offer for? If that’s for E4 as I assume it is (given your YOE) I think that’s a top of the band offer

      OP
      Yup E4

    What level is that Uber offer? That base seems too high for L4..
    May 15 4
    • Amazon () { :; };
      OP
      It’s for an L4, they told me it’s the best they can do for this level
      May 15
    • Apple xndlr
      That base is 20k more than the highest I have seen..
      May 15
    • Amazon () { :; };
      OP
      Ya, I thought so too, as per levels.fyi I cannot see anyone at L4 with that base, my assumption is since their IPO is done it’s not paper money anymore, and they don’t want to pay 100k in stocks every year.

    Jesus man, I’m the exact same YoE but already have a 10% lower current TC and have not looked at other companies at all.

    Time to LC I guess

    RSU can go a bit higher ($360k at FB - but you will need competing offer). Base is pretty close to max.

    Actually, tell the recruiter you will join right away if they offer $400k RSU, otherwise you will need to go to your coming onsite (Google, Airbnb and make some shit up).

    Hey OP, how long did it take facebook to respond with an offer after onsite? I'm going thru so much back and forth for more than 1 week now, i feel like fb recruiter is toying with me, one day she comes back with good news, another day bad... So many approval processes. Any insights u can share
