Negotiation service from levels.fyi was invaluable in my job search. In such a hot market, it is hard to determine what the market rate is for roles that are in-demand. Working with recruiting professionals whose job it is to track these trends is great and gives you insight to what is going on the employers side of the negotiation.

During my job search I was very fortunate to have received a few different offers. While this is a great problem to have, it was definitely stressful to navigate the tight timelines, confusing numbers, tricky language, and different expectations for each company. Sara was able to help me at every step of the negotiation process, including how to respond to offers when they're given over the phone, how to manage a company's expectations and timelines, and the actual negotiation of the offer. I ended up increasing my total compensation more than $10,000 as a result of Sara's help, and even better I felt confident and in control while doing so. Would definitely recommend the service to others!

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.

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.

Mackenzie is knowledgeable about the Amazon negotiation process. An initial call to level-set the expectations followed by one other one to review the offer and plan of action for a counter offer was all it was needed - worked like magic. Mackenzies skill in crafting a cohesive response based on the current facts has secured me with an yearly raise of 33K from the initial offer.

The strategy call is well worth doing at least once in your career because it'll give you a playbook that you can run everytime to maximize your compensation whenever you make a move. There are multiple opportunities to negotiate and leverage - having it all laid out for you helps you take advantage of each opportunity in the process. Without it, there's a pretty large probability you are leaving money on the table.

Using the negotiation service is a no-brainer. You're losing out on potentially tens of thousands of dollars, or in my case, almost 100k. If you feel anxious, ill prepared, or at a disadvantage negotiating, then I recommend using the service. My negotiator helped educate me on what was coming - the strategy to use in negotiating, what's happening on the other side of the negotiation, and what steps to take for every situation. It was a playbook that I followed step-by-step that helped me get a much higher salary than what was initially offered.

This session was amazing. I loved how responsive and knowledgeable Sarah is. I would highly recommend throwing money at this service, it was extremely profitable for me. The knowledge that Levels has accumulated about the negotiation process helped me yield an additional $100k annually over what I would have been able to negotiate myself. Even just the fact that Levels researches and drafts the negotiation emails is frankly worth the $3000 dollars. I would have spent at least 10 hours trying to research and draft the negotiation emails and I would frankly have done a sub-par job compared with the draft from Levels. At which point its significantly more cost effective to pay experts for this service.

I wasn't sure if I should use this service initially because I had already started negotiating. Timi told me how much to counter, what justification to give, and gave me tips on how to negotiate on the phone. With market data on salaries, Timi helped me aim much higher than I would have if I completed the negotiation on my own. I highly recommend Levels.FYI not just for maximizing your current offer but also for learning some incredibly valuable skills for the future.

This was the first time I was able to negotiate an offer. I knew I had to do it as a matter of course or I'd be leaving money on the table, but my situation was a bit odd so I had no idea where to start. Taylor was very helpful in formulating a strategy and helping me execute on it by answering the many questions I had and preparing me for calls with recruiters; I can safely say that there's no way I would have gotten this much of an increase if not for his assistance. Suffice to say, this service more than paid for itself.

Taylor is an absolute rock star and Levels.fyi negotiation coaching is the real deal. I had a recruiter with over 10 years of tech industry experience in my corner helping me to simultaneously negotiate two offers against each other resulting in > $50k/yr TC increases to both offers. One offer even leveled up the job title/seniority to help meet the compensation goals that Taylor helped articulate! And, Taylor calmed my nerves and kept me negotiating long past when I would have bailed without a coach's support. This encouragement netted a final round of increases after over a week of negotiating before we reached the best and final offers.

I was very unsure how to handle the various steps in the negotiating process, and Sarah walked me through what to expect and how to respond in each step and scenario. The email Sarah wrote for me was very strong, and from there, I only had a couple short phone conversations with the recruiter that I had to handle (and Sarah gave me pointers for all of those as well). Before talking to Sarah, I was only planning to ask for 8k base salary increase, but I ended up with 13k base increase plus 10k more equity and a signing bonus. The guidance relieved a lot of my stress and anxiety about the situation, and gave me peace of mind at the end of it that I had gotten the best possible offer.

It's clear that Philip is a skilled negotiator and is extremely knowledgeable about the recruitment process. Deciding to get more sessions was a no brainer as I progressed to the offer stage. Again, I could not believe how efficient he was in communicating the process to me. Everything I wanted to know was answered in such an efficient and effective way. The sessions I had with him got me way more than a significant increase in my base pay, it gave me more confidence and helped me refine a skill set I'll be using for years to come!

Phil was very friendly, knowledgeable, and always responded to my email questions quickly. His guidance was instrumental to my negotiation process. I worked with a particularly challenging "old school" recruiter, and Phil helped give me the confidence to advocate for myself and really push for an increase in base pay as well as a full relocation package and signing bonus. Without Phil's coaching, I'm sure I would have capitulated to the recruiter's pressure and car salesman-like manipulation tactics and ended up accepting my original offer with no increase in compensation. The coaching costs money, but it is SO worth it!

All of the sessions with Natalie were amazing! She helped me navigate a complicated situation with two FAANG companies and helped me increase my offer by more than 50K in TC and this was an out-of-band offer for my role and level!!! Natalie went above and beyond and worked with my comfort level and gave me very clear language (word for word) to use with the recruiters both for calls and for emails. She even pre-empted what the recruiter would say to me and she was right every time. She always came prepared to our sessions and was responsive over email and text and answered all of the questions I had. It was clear that she is experienced - she knew exactly how compensation and negotiations work within each company and what the market worth for an individual is based on their background, interviews, competing offers, level, and individual circumstance. I felt confident and prepared walking into each negotiation conversation/email. I would recommend it to anyone, even the strongest of negotiators! We'll be requesting this service, especially Natalie for my spouse's future negotiations too!

I had only one session with Dan and it was fantastic. He was able to understand my situation quickly, brought up key points and shared amazing tips. He helped me review the drafts and revise them before sending it to the recruiter and answer all my questions promptly. Recruiter got back within few days with most of the revised changes approved! I highly recommend the service and am really happy that I decided to try the service. Totally worth it!!!

Timi is really helpful even if my request for meeting is very last minute. He helped me to benchmark offers quickly while I was on a fairly tight timeline. Although I've done quite a bit of homework to estimate a salary range myself, it's still really valuable to get more confirmation from a professional, and knowing exactly where to push/and how to push convincingly. Outside of benchmarking compensation package, Timi was also patient in answering my general questions.

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.

I have a habit of undercutting myself when asking for compensation at a new company, on top of that, my new position is in the Bay Area, where I'm unfamiliar with salaries. I hired a levels consultant to help me understand what I should be asking for and how to go about maximizing an offer. Thanks to one 30-minute session with Patrick, the difference between what I would have asked for and what I got in my offer was >$75k in total comp. I cannot overstate how helpful Patrick was in this process. The information he provided was invaluable and will change how I negotiate and value myself in all future negotiations. I will absolutely hire another Levels consultant for any future salary negotiations.

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 began speaking with a number of negotiation services, including Levels and some competitors. Levels was the only one who genuinely seemed to want to see me succeed (instead of see it as just a transaction). Other services lowballed my estimated compensation - Levels aimed way higher, and we achieved it. Sarah was an absolutely godsend when it came to negotiation with Google. She was kind enough to walk me through the entire negotiation process from start to finish. She gave me some really great tips on "how things work" with Google's negotiations. And most importantly, she gave me the confidence to push hard in negotiations and not give in! I cannot express how great Sarah is - helpful, patient, knowledgable, super responsive. I'm excited to start at Google knowing I negotiated the best offer I could!

Carlos was very friendly to talk to and knowledgeable about negotiating for applied/research scientists. He helped me work through my offers and understand the situation and options. We worked together to come up with the plans for negotiation next steps. He even helped draft an email to send to the recruiter. I also appreciate it a lot when he helped with some last-day rescheduling of my sessions to fit my timeline. I successfully negotiated all my three offers under Carlos' help, including one that is already high initially. What's more to me out is that I had more peace of mind in negotiating offers because I understood more about how it works on the other side of the table.

The session was very helpful. I was worried that the consultant would try to drag things out or up-sell me. He did neither. He was concise, but thorough, and his advice ended up getting me an additional $20,000 per year in comp. My only quibble was that he told me he would follow up by emailing me additional research material on comp bands, but I never received it. Regardless, the additional material proved unnecessary, and I was more than pleased with the result.

Negotiated a Senior Staff Engineer offer at VMware

Overall the sessions were very helpful, I definitely learned some good strategies as well as the general playbook some of these companies follow when negotiating. I paid for three sessions and only used two, but had many exchanges over email/g-chat. The consultant was very willing to give time and advice - over email and even beyond the allotted session time. From my experience the service/data seems more geared towards software engineers (rather than system, research, and/or hardware engineers like myself) and very specifically towards FAANG. I ended up with a number of offers, but all of them were quite far from the target my consultant said would be possible (and far from what peers in similar roles quoted). And after a couple of rounds of negotiation I ultimately hit ceilings that were still quite far off (the one I accepted didn't actually go higher). This may be due to some issues in communication with the consultant, less data/experience with people in my "technical demographic (right out of PhD)," hiring differences due to the pandemic, or some mixture of the above. In the end, the service is still worth it - even if your offer increases only 1%, the service can easily pay for itself. It's definitely still necessary to do your own homework, especially if you don't fit the same demographic as most of the data on the site.

2 / 2021

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.

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.

Very helpful. I literally can't think of anything to do better. What to say, what to ask for, reasoning... all presented clearly and succinctly.

Using Sarah's suggestions, I was able to negotiate a better offer without much leverage on my side. I would highly recommend this service in general and Sarah in particular.

Negotiated a Sr. Software Engineer (level 5) offer at Facebook

The session was incredibly helpful. I sought general information related to early stage negotiation and salary expectations for a few forking career paths ahead of me. I left with more clarity around my prospects, more actionable information than I anticipated, and felt empowered to start my next step.

This negotiation service helped me get a 20k extra sign on bonus with Snap. Truly an excellent service that the folks at Levels.fyi are building! It's been my favorite product I've discovered in 2020 :)

With a 90K/4 year return with Levels.fyi negotiation service - it's a no brainer! Sarah helped and conversed with me in over 80+ emails and two 30 minute phone calls and helped me in every step of the way!

Sarah blew me away with her knowledge and energy. She was so thorough, I took pages of notes. I think my offer might be $100k higher as a result of working with her. She helped me understand my true market value, and more than that, my options along multiple career paths, both present and future. This was a career-altering chat.

Negotiated a Software Engineer (E5) offer at Facebook

The session was invaluable to me in adopting the right strategy for maximizing my final compensation given the offers that I was expecting. The advice was easy to understand and perfectly sensible in retrospect, but I would never have thought of it on my own. I only regret that I had not had this conversation earlier in my job search instead of waiting until the offer stage.

The Levels.fyi advisor reviewed my offers with me and gave me helpful negotiation tips. I was able to convince one company to 2X my bonus and bump my stock options... a $30K/yr total increase! Sarah, my Levels.fyi advisor, went over the tactical details of how I should ask for adjustments and play one offer off the other. I was in a time crunch (one company wanted a response in 3 business days), and she even offered to review my draft emails over the weekend before I sent them to my hiring managers! It all worked out, and I've got a great job with great pay!

Levels.fyi takes the guess work out of negotiations so that you are armed with an offer strategy customized to your situation and backed by hard data. More importantly, my negotiations expert knew the ins and outs as a former recruiter for FAANG companies and was able to provide nuanced guidance at each of my options. I also appreciated the thoughtful guidance and coaching support I received as a fresh-minted MBA graduate entering into one of the most volatile job market in the past decade. Levels.fyi was super responsive and always went above and beyond, even providing tips on how to prepare for future interviews. I only wish I had contacted Levels.fyi sooner. I can't recommend the Levels.fyi team enough. I chose Levels.fyi because their expertise, access to data, and professionalism exceeded other options out there and know I wouldn't have been able to get a 10% increase during COVID without their help.
