      FB E6 would beat that 5B offer:

    This seems to be a very solid offer. Try get some sign on ~50k should be reasonable. How is refresh like at Uber?

  • Does EM start from L5B ? Or are there L5A EMs too ?

      No, not really. You can always answer in that structured format, though.

    No sign on bonus?
    Target bonus should be around 20%, 28k sounds too little to me.
    Cliff is a red flag. Most companies (F/G) don't have it.

    • Not sure standard is the right word but fwiw Apple also no longer has a cliff either.
