Offer evaluation Google L4 vs FB E5

Jun 28, 2019 35 Comments

6 years@ Amazon, L5.

FB: 200/600/100
G: Recruiter says an offer close to this is pending approval. And saying 350K is already out of band for L4.

I’m leaning towards FB at this moment because one level higher (I know it’s not 100% match). FB WLB said to be bad, google L4 would be very comfortable. Thoughts?

      This. FB E5 will fare better in the long run. It's going to take a while to get to L5 at Google.

    Higher level means higher stress. Choose Level 4.

      Why make $100 working one year, when you can make $1 each year working 100 years

    Fb. If not work out after no longer than a few month, ask google if you can go there without further interview

      If he's going to make comparable comp to FB with less stress, does that really matter?

    You need to work much harder at FB to earn the same money.

      But I heard they have good refresh bonus afterwards. Is it not? Maybe one year is not too long. At least get the additional 100k, then boomerang for L6 or higher at amazon
