Was interviewed for E5, but finally got E4.

Any thoughts? Especially compared to 350k TC in Bay area in other company?

    My only thought is don’t compare against Bay Area TC unless you’re into comparing apples to salmons

    Just curious, for the same living standard and assuming single male/female, will OP save more with that offer in London or 350TC in Bay area?

    Very decent E4 offer in London. Particularly the stock. Unfortunately, TC in London is way lower than usa.

    The potential upside is there though. The company is growing a lot. I joined as E4 and was promoted to E5 in 1 year. The base of E5 starts at 100k.
    My total compensation doubled in 1 year.

    350 is for E5 I think. For E4, you would get around 250 in Bay area.

    You should be able to ask requiter to change your location to Bay area.

      It looks a low ball, according to levels.fyi - maybe someone from FB London can add more data.

      But overall you need to push these numbers up
