Not interested in hedge funds/quant or Palantir. FAANG NY positions for external new grads seem limited. What are some other solid companies with:
-good learning and growth potential (as an engineer)
-growth potential/doing well (as a company)
-impact
-healthy work culture
-interesting work/product area

Let me know! :) Looking for a good place to launch my career.

    I think linkedin is worth considering. Good work life balance, high scale and nice problems to tackle. I also find the work meaningful and believe it is beneficial for society

    I’m not sure why you perceive FAANG as limited in NY, there are definitely spots, and you should apply anyway! (Ok, Apple is really small, but besides that...). Recruiters try to bring you to HQ but if you put your foot down, they often acquiesce

      OP
      Thanks! I do have the impression that most NY new grad slots are taken up by returning interns, but will definitely give it a shot.
