Google T4, 150k base, 500k stock, 25k sign on.
Facebook E5, 180k base, 600k stock, 50k sign on.

Offers are final. Stock is over 4 years. 15% yearly bonus. Both positions are in Seattle. Google’s team is pretty cool. Facebook has bootcamp.

    Go to FB and if you really want Google, try again after a year. 9 yoe seems like you're down leveling.

    I'd also push on the FB offer. I got a higher base than you with less than 4 yoe.

      Based on my experience, I would say 60 hours to get meet all rating is about right.

      Can you share your interview preparation? I have a similar profile like yours and my interview is in a month.

      Just worked through interviewbit.com, as someone recommended here on Blind. It took me a few months, but eventually both interviews appeared fairly simple: G was about medium difficulty, FB was easy. Probably I came over prepared.

      I voted fb, comp much better today, no need to wait 1+ year in best case scenario to catch up.
      That said, wlb is important too, 60k difference in pay is probably around 30k after tax. For some people this is not worth the extra hours.

      Amazing. We don't give out E5 to 63. Typically 64 and 65 gets E5.

      Well done

    I had my interview on a Thursday and received an offer by the following Thursday.

    They have specific days where they meet to review candidates. If there are too many, it could be that your application would be reviewed the following week.

      Cool. Would you be interested in mentoring or taking mocks? Let me know and I will PM you.

      Sorry, I'm not interested in taking on that responsibility. There are plenty of resources out there that'll help you. Best of luck.

      9.5 yoe. 1.5 as 63. Not enough to get T5 at Google, apparently. A friend of mine was 64 with 11 yoe, still got T4 with a bit higher numbers.

      Holy shit, my profile is exactly same as you. 8.5 instead of 9.5 but everything else same. And will be soon interviewing at these places too.
