Thanks EY. What if I don’t want to give this info right away? I want to go through my interview and then negotiate

like

Senior program manager

Are they asking right away? I’ve only gone so far as initial round at one of the FAANG and had to turn down second due to issue with relocation. Comp wasn’t mentioned at all. If they’re pushing for that negotiation too early I don’t see any harm in saying something along the lines of “I am very interested in the work you do, and I am sure we can come to agreeable terms at that point in the process”

I’d say something along the lines of “my preliminary estimate is around __, but this is subject to change depending on the type of work and responsibility I would be expected to take on.”

Bands for FAANG are pretty fixed. Level and YoE. They generally will land in a certain ball park. Non-tech is lower than Tech for PM.

Asking early is a bad sign imo. Means there is a tight salary band which they think you will not fit into, junior recruiter, or a role which they just want to fill and move one. At some FAANGs there are many levels to a role. Level 1 is very junior but a level 5-6, etc is senior and strategic.

Usually say all in 250k

..oh and it seems that 170k is the highest they’ll pay for salary based on posts here..although it’s possible I’m wrong

Especially for tech companies, FAANG,

Break down ur total expectation by base, bonus, equity

Thank you. It’s being asked before the final interview (written request) and I also have a call with HR to discuss compensation before the final interview

Also, good point above.. I wonder how much I can negotiate with the RSUs..

I’m ok with then wanting to fill and move on. This is a senior pm role

Does consulting gives better compensation than tech and corporate? Right from undergrad, you can make partner in consulting a bit later than 30, even at principal level, you can make enormous amount of money while in tech (business roles) and corproate strategy (or business units) it is extremely hard to get even close.  e.g. principals in general makes much more than a director/senior director and even VPs+ while the former is way younger Is not taking consulting a mistake (post-MBA)? @mckinsey
