Will these companies offer more than FB?

I’m currently in the interview process for a new grad swe position. I have a new grad offer from FB for $110k salary, $160k rsu/4 years $65k sign on. I was offered interviews at:

Caspar AI
Asana
Stripe
Airbnb
Rubrik
Robinhood
Optiver Trading
Cloudflare
Confluent
Affinity
Snap (Application Security Engineer)
Microsoft

I don’t have time for them all and am only interested if they can match or beat FB’s offer. Does anyone know which one of these companies fits that category?

    Optiver will offer more base and cash bonus but no RSUs, so if you're planning to use it as counter, it won't help. Above 4 will.

    Msft will if your interviews were good/you are returning intern with strong intern experience/strong competing offers.

    MS will match that if you do well in the interview (probably 50 sign on but 113-115 salary), they will max out at 200 rsu.

      Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha unlikely. From the company that was notorious for giving new grads 60k RSU offer?

      You dont know much about the latest offers from MS. I do. You just have to be a highly rated returning intern or a have a strong competitive offer, which op has.

      If you have competing offer , now Microsoft is aggressive in countering that

      This wasn't my XP. I had same offer from FB and MS capped out at 130/45 stock/sign even though I know they can go up to 150/50 at least

      Ive seen several offers for new hires around 125/200/50. Those are not the common case but strong interviews combined with being a returning intern or having a top competing offers will trigger them. OP's offer is well within range. Not everyone will get this, of course. A lot depends on how well they viewed the interview in addition to those other things.

    Airbnb may, it’s paper money though — snap maybe also.

    Rubrik might beat that TC. We have options though so depends on how you value them.

      I would say a bit higher than FB in about two years.

      FB pays the same for Bay Area/SEA/NYC. Other locations you take a pay cut. i.e. ATX is 10% cut, but no income tax there so you get the same take home.

      OP
      220 tc is insane... i’ll definitely try hard during my interview haha.

      I got the Stripe onsite today, but they said their first opening is Nov 30th (deadline with fb is nov 1st). Is it worth signing with FB and reneging later if I get a solid offer?

      Also do what’s best for you in terms of reneging, California is a free will employment state, wouldn’t worry about it too much , especially if stripe is this slow

      I got the offer for Robinhood yesterday and am in the process with Airbnb. Also some startups offered me options instead of RSUs (Rubrik and Shift). Do you know how I should value options if they’re in the range of 0-xxx?
      Oct 10, 2018
    • Rubrik hWNp37
      Yeah I definitely heard some of those numbers for some of the above companies, especially Stripe Airbnb and Robinhood, with RSUs. Options are harder to evaluate, so definitely do due diligence there
