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? I’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 don’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

    Most of the software engineers are from mechanical engineering background 😀.

    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. You’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
