Can anyone tell me how stock refreshes work at FAANG companies? Do you get additional stock every year based on performance?

It depends on the company. Some will give you a refresher every year based on performance, others will take stock appreciation into account. At Amazon for example let’s say you’re rating Exceeds for a Manager and the target cash comp for that is $300K. You are at $200K base and got $50k per year in stock when you joined. That $50K has grown to $100K, so you’re making $300K / year. You would get no refresher since your comp of $300K is your target cash comp.

Wow. That takes a big chunk of the wealth creation lever out of play. I’ve worked at two places with RSUs and you get a dollar value of new shares every year that vest over time. But stock appreciation form previous years’ grants doesn’t impact the current year’s grant.

Do you understand how RSUs work?

@ACN 1, don’t be a dick...if OP knew, they wouldn’t be asking

At my company (public, FAANG adjacent) you start with a chunk that vests over four years with a one year cliff. Every year with performance review, they will award additional RSUs as a part of the performance review cycle. At that point, HR will take a look at the overall comp to ensure the initial grant remains at least on track with what was negotiated at signing. If it’s significantly below, adjustments may be made.

How tough is it to break into a FAANG PM role at mid-level if you have less prestigious experience? I have 10+ YOE in product, but some was at a tiny meh startup that fizzled out, some was in the digital wing of a large old healthcare org, and though my current role is GPM at a “name brand” tech company, it’s on the smaller side. Went to a good-but-not-Ivy school. What qualifications and experience are FAANG companies looking for when hiring mid-level PMs? Can I break in at mid-level from here?
