Are mechanical engineers treated like second class citizens at FAANG?

FAANG being predominately a software company are hardware engineers treated as support roles to software? Iโ€™m specifically asking for the team culture/dynamics in the product/hardware focused teams within the respective company. Thanks.

    Developers look down on everybody, even each other. So donโ€™t worry about it.

      This is true. When I joined software I didn't know I had joined society of elitist assholes. But it's cool because the money is so gooood. Once I make enough I'm switching to a research position in different subject and leave it all behind

    They are first class citizens in Apple. Third class citizens in others.

    Their pay scale is definitely second class. If you are still young, try to make a shift to software. Youโ€™ll be much better off financially and in terms of career growth options.

    Depends on the team and the company. I know many mech E guys from school who had great experiences in product design for example
