I've never worked at a FAANG or Twitter, Oracle, nor PayPal. If you have 7 YOE, please post what TC to expect if you are job searching in 2019 for senior fullstack web applications engineering roles at well funded tech companies in Bay Area. Is there a plateau in base salary for senior engineers?

    L5 if you have experience leading projects. L4 otherwise

    Base 150-180
    Sign on bonus 60-100
    RSU 400-500

    You're looking at TC 250-300.

    They don't pay by years of experience, they pay by what you're capable of doing which will be determined by your interview performance. You can have 7 years and lack qualifications that someone with 1 year experience has. FANGs are not basic CRUD shops, they have difficult technical challenges and are looking for strong problem solves with good CS foundation.

      How many people make 500 K in FAANG or PayPal or Oracle ? Like percentage wise . I think it should be less than 2-3%

      I think $500k is far too high for 7 YOE unless you invented map reduce or critical widely used libraries.

      I see here everyone post high salaries . I know Glassdoor is conservative . I checked LinkedIn salaries too and it is little more than Glassdoor . Here it is over inflated . I don’t know what is included in TC ?

      Role, Education level, previous experience type also surprised you consider 7 yoe for hitting a plateau...
