Randy was attentive, supportive, knowledgeable and encouraging. He helped me gain confidence in my value. The techniques and insights he provided were invaluable. I was apprehensive before the first conversation but Randy immediately put me at ease and began to demonstrate the value of this service. He rapidly responded to communications and none of our conversations were rushed. He genuinely cared and i felt it! I will take these lessons with me for the rest of my career. The levels.fyi website rapidly became my go to research location. It has a wealth of valid information and very useful functionality. Randy & levels.fyi thank you for this life changing experience!

My advisor Karis was awesome. At first, I felt it is difficult to increase the TC by 100k in this tough market, but Karis made it. She was very supportive and strategic. She anticipated multiple possible responses from recruiter and prepared suitable responses for each possible scenario. I sincerely recommend Karis for this advisory role. Thank you so much !

Randy helped demistify the negotiation process, and empowered me to navigate with clarity and surefootedness. He is very knowledgeable, and provides personalized and effective advice. Working with him on a Meta offer was an excellent learning experience, and helped increase my RSUs by 22.2% and base by 4.3%. His responses to my queries were prompt and effective. Going through such a process helps me start my new role with joy and peace of mind.

The sessions with Ryan were very helpful. Mainly , he 1) pushed me to do all my interviews even though I have had a potential offer that I liked, 2) talked to me about the TC baseline and what to expect (that raised what I had in mind), and 3) helped me with the back and forth with the recruiters. Given the potential outcome, the price is a no-brainer.

Randy was absolutely amazing. Not only did he help me negotiate the final offer and have a massive $200K increase per year but also from the initial conversation with the recruiters, he helped me push for a M2 leveling at Meta and L7 leveling at Google. FAANGs have a habit of down leveling you. Thanks to his advice I managed to be considered at the right level, which pushed my initial offer much higher than it would have been. It's a no brainer: take a levels.fyi coach. The return on investment is here and it personally gave me peace of mind to focus on interviewing. Randy not only delivered but he also supported me throughout and helped me lower my stress to focus on smashing the interview. I strongly strongly recommend Randy! He absolutely knocked it out of the park.

I paid $650 for a $63K TC return - talk about the best return on investment ever; wow, just wow!! This service was fantastic (and I've already recommended it to all of my friends) not just because of the financial return, but also the confidence instilled by Janet (my negotiation coach) throughout the entire process that you are worth WAY MORE than you think. I consider myself a decent negotiator, but it's just a different game when it comes to tech recruiting; to have a negotiation coach who is also a tech recruiter and thus knows the game is extremely invaluable. To expand more on why this was a life changing service, Janet started off with an ambitious question: what's your north star / dream offer? I threw a number that felt viscerally uncomfortable, but Janet did not waver: "let's go for it", which gave me all the confidence that this number was attainable (tl;dr, I was only 5K off from this number at the end, so confidence in your worth is key to a successful negotiation). And off we went - the negotiations game began! To not belabor this review with unnecessary details, where Janet played a pivotal role was all the small details. When to disclose/leverage compensation information; how to communicate deflection for recruiter questions that don't ultimately serve you; how to leverage competing offers with integrity. I communicated with her almost every day for a week and would share with her my recruiter emails & get feedback on ideas, and she responded very quickly. All in all, Janet and the Levels.FYI team were the ultimate partner-in-crime, from defining the negotiation strategy all the way down to the execution & communication. Highly highly recommend!!

The session was super useful on evaluating multiple offers and having negotiation conversations with recruiters. The session taught me on how to go about putting forth expectations and being responsible with the communication and negotiation.

Joe is absolutely wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable about the entire recruiting and compensation process. He quirky analyzed the situation and drafted the perfect email response to the initial offer. He even provided me timelines on when the deal would seal. I had an extremely smooth negotiation experience because of him. I was very stressed out about a few things and he responded to all my questions every step of the way. I was not offered a sign-on bonus in my initial offer but Joe included it in the counter-offer. I ended up getting a much higher sign-on bonus. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better coach. Thank you, Joe and the staff at Levels! Keep up the amazing work and I would 200% recommend you all to my friends and family.

Karis is absolutely wonderful. She was able to smoothly handle my negotiations as the situation developed. I would have been stressed out of my mind if it wasn't for her. I mean, I still was stressed out, but luckily she was there to answer my questions every step of the way. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better coach. Thank you Karis and the staff at Levels! So, if you're on the fence... her results speak for themselves.

Very helpful! Timi completely understood my situation, set my expectations correctly, told me exactly what I could ask for (and how), and practiced with me until I was comfortable. It only took one counter to increase my first-year comp by $52k and 4-year comp by $118k. I was already happy with my initial offer, and Timi helped me make it even better. Thank you!

Not being from the tech industry, I was inclined to undersell myself before the negotiation. Thankfully, the coaches from Levels.fyi educated me with a clear picture of the recruiting and negotiation process. They provided me with a reasonable salary range for my position, which was so much higher than my naive expectation despite my own research on the website. Most importantly, they also prepared me for how and what to say during negotiation. I wish I had received their help for all of my previous positions.

Software Engineer E4

Jason helped me a lot, not just in increasing my first-year total compensation by a significant amount but also in learning about how the recruiter-compensation negotiations process works. Before, I had taken negotiations courses and was taught to not share information about my best alternative because my negotiations counterpart would be incentivized to bid $1 higher than whatever my alternative is. Hence, when companies asked me what I wanted and what my numbers were, I was always hesitant to share. Jason taught me to reframe my thinking because we would be creating an auction where the multiple companies I had offers from would be bidding for me. In an auction, the highest bidder amount is always public, so I followed that approach. I had to be reminded 3 additional times by Jason to advertise the highest bid when I received it because it did not feel natural to me. I'm really glad he did though because the auction approach to salary negotiations helped me get very close to the top of the band for a Meta E4 offer.

It was definitely the right decision to choose levels.fyi for salary negotiation. I got a good offer already but Karis helped me come up with strong data points and communicate them effectively to even push the offer to a much higher level. Karis was very detailed and extremely responsive via emails and video calls. I learned a lot from her in this negotiation process. Thank you so much, Karis and levels.fyi!!!

I highly recommend this service. Timi was amazing. I was satisfied with my original offer and had no competing offers so I was not expecting to get much out of my negotiations. Timi helped me with my negotiation email and worked with me to come up with data points and strategies that I could use during the negotiations. This turned out to be a life changing decision for me. Thank you so much Timi and Levels.fyi

I had two very different competing offers for somewhat different roles on very different cost of life cities so negotiation was expected to be hard. Taylor helped me understand the whole negotiation process and what the recruiters could be thinking when comparing these offers against each other. This helped me focus on highlighting the unique qualities of every offer istead of just presenting numbers to the recruiters.

Two words to describe this service: No. Brainer. I have never negotiated a salary this large/complex before and Taylor was there to guide me the whole way. As I was going through the process of negotiation I realized how many times I would have screwed up and gotten less money if Taylor wasn’t there to keep me on track. He knew exactly how Facebook's comp process worked, how hard and when to push, and how to leverage other data to increase the offer. Using this service is money beyond well spent and the increase in comp I got will pay for their service alone many many times over even in just the first month.

I was really nervous about negotiating and had so many questions. I saw Levels' negotiation coaching service as an investment and tried it out. Taylor was very insightful and responded to all of my questions in a timely manner. Taylor was able to help me every step of the way and knew exactly how to respond to recruiters. By the end of my job search, Taylor was able to help me get the max possible offer at Facebook for my level and I couldn't be any happier!

This was an incredible service, especially for someone that had never gone through a negotiation process before. Taylor methodically walked be through the process and served as a very responsive source of encouragement throughout. His reinforcing attitude helped me put aside any nervousness I may have had going into a salary negotiation and push beyond what I would have ever imagined possible. I have immediately and wholeheartedly recommended this service to all I know who are in the job search right now.

The sessions with Taylor were super helpful. Taylor knew the actually upper bound for the exact role/ company that I was negotiating with. This information made it possible to confidently ask for what I wanted and get what I think was a very fair outcome. Taylor is also a seasoned negotiator and having his guidance meant that I was able to go through the process with minimal anxiety!

Jason was extremely helpful and provided some insider knowledge that made it much easier to understand the negotiation process. In addition to a video conference, a phone call, and a very comprehensive informational overview email, we exchanged more than 20 emails over the course of the negotiation. This constant communication gave me the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback along the way. It was absolutely worth the investment.

Wow I am so lucky to have Sarah as my negotiator! I highly recommend her because she gets great things done efficiently and elegantly. In a week's time, with 2 short-notice calls, she helped me negotiate more than 155k in total! In addition to that, her extensive big tech work experience definitely helped me join my new company with even more confidence and sense of purpose! Negotiating was stressful for me in the past, but Sarah's empathy and attentiveness made me have a positive view on it! Thank you so much Sarah!!

I would not have asked for or gotten the offer I wanted on my own. Mackenzie helped me write a persuasive letter on why I deserved a high TC that got me up 100k without having a competing offer. I'm grateful for the guidance and support, even though I was stressed out during portions of the process.

Coming from outside the tech world and getting my first FAANG offer I was totally clueless on how to go out negotiating with my recruiter. Sarah was amazing in crafting my story and responses. She walked me through the ins and outs of negotiations and the entire hiring process super clearly. This gave me a lot of confidence to stick to my ask and I ended up getting the top of the band offer.

The session was extremely helpful. Natalie framed the problem and asked just the right questions to navigate the negotiation, and substantially raised my final comp. Even assuming I would negotiate well for some kind of increase on my own, I am utterly confident that Natalie easily covered the costs of the service with her skills. In addition to the raw numbers, though, Natalie made the whole thing less stressful and more tractable, making me feel better about it (which is also valuable). I very strongly recommend you get in touch with Natalie or her colleagues early in your negotiation; it's basically free value.

It was amazing. I was so anxious and Philip listened, calmed me down and proposed multiple solutions as well as gave me a lot of internal insights he had. He helped me frame the mails as well and most importantly was always there on e-mail support for me. His replies were as swift as they could be, and he took out time on his busiest day as well because I was having an exploding offer issue. Absolutely loved the entire experience. It was really worth every penny spent. As a result I was able to negotiate and bring the offer to a better state, much closer to what I had wanted. I got a gain of 26k GBP to my annual compensation!

I am not sure what I would have done if I did not work with Sarah. I know for sure my total comp would have been 100k lower though. Because Sarah is so knowledgeable with FAANG negotiation processes/limits, she created strong game plan for me to negotiate with multiple companies at once to maximize what I can get and ultimately landing on a job of my dream with even dreamier total comp. Thank you so much Sarah and Level.fyi for helping me. I would 1000% recommend the service to anyone. Also, strongly recommend to go for the maximum session you can purchase if you are type of a person like me who struggle with negotiation or doesn't know what to say.

The negotiation was helpful for reassurance that I was not completely off in what I was going to try. I was pretty much going to do what was suggested, but the negotiator knew the upper bound on equity I could ask for (very useful information). She also drew my attention to trying to bring the base salary up 10K, which I am not sure I was going to try, as well as for the signup bonus. As for doing better, I would have liked a video call with a shared screen. The shared screen would make it easier to follow calculation and understand the numbers.
