    Google is the only realistic answer here. I would say the majority of SWEs here work 40 hours per week at the most and many don’t do shit, while still banking 250k+.

      Many cases no. Some places have plenty of growth if you want it.

      Don’t do shit? How do they survive without getting fired or without promotion ever? Also, Google team has short iteration no? Finally, I heard Google team disband is quite common.

      You have to do basically nothing in order to be pip'd at G. And yet, some people still do, it baffles me.

      I know someone that got put on pip. Can’t ever get the full story out of him, but I’m pretty sure it’s because he’s a giant pain of a person and not because he did 0 work

      MSFT stock has been growing like crazy 😜. If only MSFT ups the stock refresh, it would be in par with G

    I worked at G & MS before in different teams and a few startups before that. Now at FB. And I tell ya, nothing can beat MS ever.
    G/FB are the same from my experience and WLB solely depends on the team. But at FB you have the luxury to choose the team during bootcamp with best WLB for you. Plus at FB Seattle there’s a lot of older ex-MS folks with families and kids. Ah, and same salaries as in the Bay.

    There are teams with good WLB everywhere. Choose teams with mostly older people that are married with kids. They won’t want to sacrifice their lives for their jobs at that point.

    • If you're in the same team as them, doesn't that mean you need to pick up their slack?

      You’re competing with the people around you. So if they are slacking you just have to slack less to be a superstar.
      Jun 23, 2018
    • But doesn't that mean your team as a whole will underperform?
      Jun 23, 2018
    • Microsoft / Eng PoolClosed
      Depends how the other teams are. Many places it doesn’t matter too much as you’re only really compared against your own team and the adjacent teams.

    These are companies with 10s of thousands of people. Experience will vary. Amazon is the only outlier as they do not believe in wlb and instead prefer the circle.

      "Ideally sometime before 11" according to my boss. If you show up after 10 you don't get free breakfast though

      I come in between 11 and noon no issue. I am relatively lower level but others do it too.

      My team always books me for 11 am meetings 😭

      Standard on team is 10 - 6, grab dinner and leave. People with families tend to come in a bit earlier (9) and leave a bit earlier.

    Amazon is shit at work life balance, but it’s amazing when it comes to work life harmony.
