What’s everyone’s perception of the top 5 to 10 tech companies in the Bay going into 2019?

Paysa has them ranked as follows (based on talent):

1. Uber
2. Airbnb
3. Google
4. Snap
5. Facebook
6. Pinterest
7. Amazon
8. Apple
9. Lyft
10. Salesforce

How would you change the ordering of the above list? Who would you add and remove? What about companies like LinkedIn, Box, Twitter, Netflix, etc?

EDIT:
Folks the Paysa ranking was just an example. What is the ranking in your opinion?

      Uber and Lyft’s market is much bigger than Airbnb.

      I don’t underestimate their engineering team. But the product itself. It’s too much of a niche

      list looks solid but what about pinterest. should beat out at least box

    Google and Snap above Facebook?
    Salesforce in the top 10 instead of Netflix or LinkedIn?

    What are these people smoking?

      wait, so you think Airbnb above FB is correct?

      The same thing that ranks amazon above google in the LinkedIn rankings.

      Airbnb is never above fb. The ads market is much bigger than hotel booking. Airbnb << UBER/Lyft << Facebook/google/Apple. You take multiple Uber trips a week and how many Airbnb’s do you book a year?

    Please stop this circle-jerk, all companies have good and bad engineers

      Nope! Every company is equally good! We need to make sure no one has their feelings hurt and stop the circle-jerk!

      🤷 you're missing the point. There's no point ranking companies like this, rank engineers by TC and you know where you stand lmao

      OP
      You misunderstood the purpose of the post. I am literally asking for everyone’s personal opinion on what the rankings should be. I don’t care what your criteria are. The inclusion of the Paysa rankings was meant to be an example to use as a conversation starter.

      If you have a personal ranking and it’s based on TC, that’s fine! Feel free to share it!

      If you have a personal ranking based on the proportion of bad to good engineers, that’s also fine.

      If you think there’s no point in ranking companies based on arbitrary criteria, that’s also fine, but then this topic probably isn’t for you. 👍

    Ranked by what? I’ve heard terrible things about FB from people that actually work there in terms of happiness

    If google is not number 1 then it is a shit ranking. Uber cannot seriously be number 1 after the incredible amount of scandals

      How is Cruise rn? Culture? Tech? I've been super interested for a while
      Aug 30, 2018
    • Cruise Automation HmmisTaken
      Culture is good. Tech I don’t know, this is my first self driving job. Overall i think it’s doing ok. Progress is slower than expected but now the company is hiring crazily, which may be a boost.
