If you want a big salary at Facebook and you’re not an executive or in the c-suite, go for a job in engineering, marketing or communications.
High level engineers can easily make a salary in the mid-six figures, as can people at the director level in marketing and communications, according to a year’s worth of Facebook pay data. Insider pulled the information from more than 15,000 work-visa applications the company filed with the US government in 2021. An engineering manager, for instance, makes just under $350,000 a year. A director of internal communications is earning $300,000. 
And that’s just salary. Facebook’s total compensation packages include initial generous grants of restricted stock units, usually equal to salary, that are “refreshed” upon annual performance reviews, like those wrapping up right now. A refresher is at minimum another equity grant equal to the dollar amount of a person’s salary. It can be three or four times that amount for those deemed good performers.
It all starts with salary, though. So how much exactly do other Facebook workers make?
It depends on the job, of course, and as remote work has become more commonplace, to some extent on where the worker is based. Facebook, aka Meta Platforms, now has full-time workers in 17 states, the visa data shows, from Hawaii to South Carolina. A data scientist in California makes $170,000 while one in Maryland makes $155,000. A software engineer in Massachusetts makes $123,000 and one in New York makes $160,000. 
The information has limitations. It covers only jobs for which Facebook is hiring from other countries, which was extensive last year as the company struggles to recruit and retain talent. It’s heavy on data scientists and engineers and short on executives. No stock grants are included in the data, nor is experience and its influence on pay. Still, it gives solid insight into Facebook’s pay scale.
Keep reading for a breakdown of what the social-media giant pays for close to 300 different jobs. Also be sure to take a look through Insider’s big tech salary database, featuring data on how much Apple, Tesla, Amazon, and other companies pay their employees.
