    The answer is quite different for the two companies (I worked at Google for two years before coming to fb.)

    Why are you assuming that they’re equivalent? I couldn’t answer your poll because the answer is two different timelines. I would have said 3-4 years for FB and 6-7 years for G.

      I assumed they had significant overlap If not completely the same

      They do not - ask anybody who has worked at both companies. Fb is known for its fast promo ladder (relative to all other FAANG companies.)

      Internal promo maybe faster but we require 7+ YOE for external candidate

      The question implies it’s internal - why would OP be asking about how long it takes to get to E5 at fb if coming from outside of fb... ? Not sure why you’re chiming in to point out something that’s not relevant or helpful.

    l4 in G = l5 in Fb, l5 in G = low to middle l6 in Fb, as a whole levels in fb + amz are identical, while g is slightly different

    You mean expected YOE to reach that level or average YOE of people at that level? L5 is terminal or beyond at both companies, so there are plenty of people with like 25 YOE raising the latter number.

      Is expected yoe really a thing ? I mean they say they will level you based on your interview performance. Don't how true is that though. Also things are different for people within the firm and those who come from outside

    I think the younger L5s tend to be those who started as new grad out of college

    I was an external hire, so 7. But most externals tend to be more than 7.

    Those promoted to E5 from E3 could be more like 3.5-5. There’s a ton of external E4 hires as well so I would say the average probably skews later.
