Interviewing with no intention of accepting? (& 4yr cliff worries)
Does anyone interview while happily employed? Just to check market rate/practice? I'd feel weird going all the way through the process just to decline.
I've been with FB for a few years now and am very happy with my team/role. I'm an engineer (IC) in a fairly niche ops area. I believe I'm compensated well and due to team specifics (international travel, flexibility, good ratings) / tenure (understand/shape our mission well) at this point I believe would be difficult to find a better company. Only thing I'm worried about is RSU drop off at year 4.
At the same time, I'm getting hit up by recruiters even more frequently now on LinkedIn. Am I doing myself a disservice? Should I just be happy with what I've got?
MPK, 3.25yr experience, IC4, 145k salary, $90k RSU every year (stock appreciation of initial grant had a big effect on this, will get cut in half after 4yr mark).
