    WLB is not gonna be worse than FB. Make sure your title is FEE instead of WDE.
    FEE is the in same family of SDE. WDE is second class citizen with less comps

    Your total comp is ~320k which is a significant jump from 200k at FB. It's a no brainier deal

      I believe the cap is higher in the bay area and maybe nyc

      It is higher - it can go all the way to 185

    Based off the interview breakdown and offer I'm assuming that's FEE2?
