    Microsoft has some really good employees, Smart people but are very loyal to MS and will not leave due to loyalty.
    Also we have a lot of crap engineers and all of PMs who can't leave MS due to incompetency.

    This is just dumb. You can go to any of these companies and be surrounded by competent hardworking people. You’re better off using another metric that can actually be quantified rather than just “he said/she said XX company is the smartest!”

    +1 that this is a silly question. All of these companies are big enough, and with diverse enough product/eng teams, that you'll likely find a wide range of talent. Most of it will vary from good to brilliant given that all of these companies are selective, but I think a more interesting discussion would be "which company would be the best place to surround myself with some of the best people in X field / job type"

    At Google, beyond SWEs, I do think our Data Scientist and TPM bars are at the high end of the range, so if you're in one of those job families, I'd feel comfortable selling you on coming here rather than the others. Whereas we're still learning a lot in Cloud, so I don't know if we necessarily have the best TAMs / TSCs etc, or if we just have the hungriest (since I'm guessing the best of the best are already at AWS / Azure, and are hard to pry away from them).
