EM usually exits to L6

Depends on the specific role at Big Tech. In general, MBA and your pedigree are of much less importance compared to your relevant YOE for the position. Outside of maybe small numbers of strat roles or other niche roles, a MBA is generally of limited utility in Big Tech.

Facebook RPMs make about $125K Base, $160K Total.

Google S&O will pay you around $150-170K TC and you’re eligible after 2 years.

You will generally not get similar exits to post MBA EMs until you’ve been in role for 1+ years if you are a BA to EM promote, especially if you get it at the 2 year mark.
