Simple question, looking for a magic combo of wlb, tc, interesting problems. Happy to settle for TC and WLB. WLB above all else.

      I've interviewed at Citadel and the interviewer admitted that the tech stack is oldish and the stress level is high. Obviously this is team dependent, so ymmv.

      Depends on OP's YoE. If less than 3-4 years, then they do go well.

      Weird tech stack built around F#.
      Interviewed last year, got some low ball TC offer.
      Oct 30
    • It’s not F# anymore. Tech is now java. React. Scala. Python. Etc.

      Not many engineers in NYC beyond a few on the Bing team in the Times square office. Microsoft NYC has mostly technical sales roles which offer great WLB

    Lyft is pretty good.

    • OP
      How do you like culture/wlb? I’m sure compensation is great
      Oct 29
    • Lyft fupaymee
      Comp is meh adjusting for the recent drop in stock price, but for people joining now, that's a good deal.

      Culture/wlb is good in general, not stressful unlike some other places, but this obviously depends on the team as well.

    • OP
      Is it a pretty large office? Diverse teams? Any Go heavy teams? Thanks for the info btw
