Hi —

I just got an offer for facebook L6 PM.The recruiter keeps asking me for salary expectations before giving me my number and has been dragging it for a few days now. Is this your experience? How do I play this?

Also indicated TC of 400-450 which seems low for L6 relative to other offers ive seen on levels.fyi.
Any PMs in the community care to give me guidance.

here is a sample offer he told me verbally but have not committed to.

base : 210
equity : 150
bonus :42

Any feedback on how to play this?

    I’ve seen 230/1M/75 (signing) for new PM6 offers. Go higher.

      Oh Snap will annihilate FANG. They offer obscenely above market. Did Snap indicate if it’s L5 (basically 6 equiv)?

      Warning: Working at Snap is fucking awful, especially as a PM. I spent 4 years there and that place will haunt me forever. Not worth it IMO.

      Extremely abusive Management. A man child for CEO that loves to quote himself and compare himself openly to artist historical figures. A bunch of new college hire designers that run the show (literally... I’ve seen NCG designers boss directors of engineering around because design is king there). CEO openly demeans certain disciplines.

      They also back load the vesting schedule— so maybe you will make the money, but no one is bullish on snap, especially long run

      FYI I have friends at snap they don’t backload anymore. They actually vest equity monthly now with no cliff which is crazy

    L6 PM at Facebook new hire can cross $500k with competing offers. Without the competing offers you can easily negotiate $450k+

      Does a current job at a FANG, etc. not do it to bring FB above $500k?

      May be only true for FB? I hear engineering managers are paid way more more than product managers? I am just an engineer so please enlighten

      I’ve got an offer for 415K TC + 45K sign on last year, which I declined because it was way too low. And they said - thanks and bye! :-)
