      Sf for Pinterest, tentatively Menlo Park for FB. I live in SF so would need to commute unless I picked an sf team in FB bootcamp

      OP commuting is hell. Take Pinterest for quality of life alone.

      Looks like someone sort of put up the Pinterest offer for me with some slightly altered details, so I guess my work is done

      I did. I am the creator of Reffo and trying to promote it. Please give me any feedback!

      Thanks took me 25 days but I'm just scratching the surface of what I want to do with it. I really want to give the leverage back to candidates by providing education about stocks and negotiation tips etc...

    Pretty strong offers for 4 yoe. I’d have chosen FB if I were you.

      And why is that
      Feb 28, 2019
    • Your hiring committee is the most biased group of folks I’ve ever interviewed with.

      No where else have I felt more attacked for my age and ethnicity. I literally stood out like a sore thumb simply because of age and ethnicity differences, which ultimately didn’t land me the position despite my making it to the final rounds.

      I’m sorry for the bad experience you had. Did you share the feedback with the recruiter?
      Mar 1, 2019
    • Yup.
      She even called me and I answered but she just kept quiet and hung up.

    What is the level for both offers? I would choose FB if I were you.

      OP
      Equivalent to fb E4 at both. I suspect these are close to top of band so I’m feeling uncertain about how much I can press for further but I figure there has to be some wiggle room

      I think the caps on stock are 450 and 600 for L4 at these two companies.

    I thought Pinterest can offer 600k stock?

    Pinterest will likely have better WLB. You can probably negotiate the Pinterest offer up since you have FB offer.

    • Twitch AFTX42
      OP
      Yes, my “TCT” is less than 240 though different due to stock appreciation.

      nice congrats on the upgrade!

    • Twitch AFTX42
      OP
      Thank you! although I am sad the industry incentivizes churn. I love my current team like family and believe in the company (both twitch and amazon) but we all have to play the cards we’re dealt!
