      At Huawei USA people do not work harder compared to other companies. Most full-time folks hire contractors to do coding and implementation for them. Huawei does not pay as much as FB or Google but it is not bad considering that life is very easy if you are Chinese and can speak Mandarin.

    Here at Google, I take a bus(takes about 40 minutes) at 9am and leave work at 530pm. Buildings(including gyms which have towels) are open 24hrs/365days apart from the infrequent electricity shutdown/test. I play sports during work hours at least 2-3 times/week @1.5hrs each session with other employees.

    Here we have breakfast, lunch and dinner but I skip dinner so I can go home early lol. I regularly run any errands I have at work (visiting doctor, getting haircut, etc.) Using the free rental cars available. There's also free laundry including baskets + detergent but that's overkill for me. My healthcare plan is a HDHP, but my biweekly cost is 0 and the deductible is 1350 for myself after which everything is covered 💯. Google deposits 1350 in my HSA every year effectively making my contributions towards medical 0. Biweekly cost for dental vision is like $8? 401k is matched 50%, so I drop 19k and google matches 9.5k. Everyone is standard issued electric standing desk, ergonomic chair, Bluetooth headphones , desktop and laptop. I didn't include the tuition benefit (2/3 tuition upto 12k/year), commuting (google now covers upto max commuting benefit per month ~250$ in bay area) because I haven't used them yet.

    There's a bunch of death benefits (all unvested stock vests immediately upon death of employee, spouse gets half salary for the next 10 years, 1k/month per child till they are through college, 3x salary life insurance).

    And pay is great too. L4 1.75 YOE, 230k TC

    BIG difference between benefits and “perks”. So which are we talking about here?

    Free cafeterias and an on-site Starbucks would be great. But our health plan for family has a $1000 deductible (employee alone is $400) and covers 90/10 until you reach your out of pocket maximum of $1500 ind / $3000 fam for the year. Wouldn’t trade that for perks if the only employer plan was a HDHP + HSA.

    Don’t see the benefit of a HDHP when my company charges the same for premium as it does the PPO. Paying just under $100/month to cover myself but same plan under COBRA would be $750 for health, not counting dental / vision.

    As far as perks...
    We have an on site gym with extended hours, humongous new locker room and changing area. Just got a new set of electrically adjustable standing desks and replacement chairs. Cafeteria open for breakfast and lunch (prices apply but food is heavily subsidized). EV charging spots up front, work from home (currently 1 day a week but new Assoc Director seems open to more).

    Life is pretty good.

      @chris box, that’s not correct and/or likely at all. I’ve worked in insurance, even top EPO/PPO platinum plans have deductibles and copays for certain visits (albeit lower cost) ie: my epo is $200 annual individual deductible with $15 copays

      LOL!

      There are SWE roles here but not in the Bay Area. Most are in Atlanta and Dallas.

      I work enterprise VoIP and legacy switch translations (5ESS, DMS mainly). Most of my work is done through email, with the occasional outbound call to a different department if I have a ticket open with them.

      The VoIP side is well... a lot of things. Toll free routing and customer IPIVR application changes, LD trunk maintenance (routine: pull stats, if dirty - take circuit OOS, refer out to dispatch, retest, turn up trunks again.)

      Stopping robocalls (explaining to call center customers they can’t spoof ANIs on our network, it must be a TN they actually own with us). Discovered in my time here that most robocalls are facilitated via carriers that still provide an “outbound only” wholesale service that doesn’t authenticate calls and just let whatever pass through. This is arcane, not secure, and is open to abuse (as we are now learning).

      Point 1 & 2 are patchy solution. Real solution is company provided transportation with Wifi and comfort.

      5th you win

      Last two weeks of the December is unofficial shutdown where you can enjoy breakfast & lunch in case not travelling for holidays :)

      Upto 14k for studying and pursuing any job related courses as per wish.

      Fuck - egg freezing and stuff. I would not promote anything which acts as an option to continue working. Family comes first. But you win

      Free life and salary continuation insurance. 5 times base in case of death. And all stocks vest. If one has child, 50% of base salary till the child reached adulthood.

      Apart from gazillion other offers and discounts for Google employees. My BMW dealer gave me 3000 off on brand new car and 3 years of free maintenance. Specs guys are running 40% off. Dyson has offer . Free travel insurance even for family.

      After 2.5 years , I am still discovering one more perk every month. The latest was the ability to book bus for nominal rate for personal trips with family and friends. Crazy

      If you have family, you will pay >3000$ for premium. And the 401k matching is upto 3.2k whatever level you are in.

      No need to compare with Google. Even Microsoft has 0$ premium and will put 9.2k in 401k. That is monetary benefit of 9k.

    Since people are asking about Amazon here it is:

    Amazon benefits suck, you don’t even get Prime membership as a benefit. No free food and no random other benefits like laundry or gym memberships. Your 401K match is worse and they only give you 2% amazon stock fund not cash match that you can then invest in whatever way. Then they fail the 401K test and kick your own contribution back so you can’t even put in the IRS max per year, completely independent of the match. Say goodbye to stay fit benefits, company store discounts, Passport etc. Stock vesting is garbage at 5,15,40,40%. They use the word frugal but all it means is cheap. They will look at hiring stocks as well when it’s time to reward you or give you a raise to compute total comp and you can end up with a 3% increase over base pay and no new stock for 2 years and zero bonus if stock has gone up. People who get promoted often get no new stocks for the next year and there is no cash bonus either for promotions. Base caps out at 160K. Your Premera HSA plan is worse. I had 22+12 days off per year at MS, here you get 10+5 your first year and 15+5 your next year onwards so you’re working a lot of days next to holidays that you get off at other places usually like Friday after thanksgiving. You have to pay for parking in your building. Also there are absolutely no enterprise level product management tools, no product studio and no TFS, it’s the Wild West and people manage roadmaps and projects in the equivalent of google docs. I learned about a new domain pretty fast because things move faster but otherwise horrible experience with benefits.

And by they time I was in the right understanding I was already doing data modeling without having talked about personas. I wish the interviewer just said how would you design a library system assuming you had complete control" instead of :a local library with no online presence contacts you and wants you to build an online presence for them.

      In general, my impression is that FB and Google compete when it comes to benefits so on many things they are at parity. They know they’re competing for the same people.

      In recent years, for example, FB added a very generous death benefit that Google’s had for a long time.

      Here’s a recent benefit that Google probably also covers: freezing your eggs.

      What's your death benefits? Also, what do you mean by "instant vesting so double money"?
      May 1
    • @qualcomm: Most often with 401K, it is gradual vesting.
      So essentially say if you put 10K a year, company matches 100% but the vesting is 25% each year. Which means if you leave the company say after 2 years, of the 100% match that company did, you only get 50% match. Rest 50%, you have to stay 4 years to get it all.

      Whereas in dropbox, no such schedule

    Amazon people are weird (peculiar?) I remember an all hands meeting where someone asked Jeff for free Prime membership (at the time it was $75) and he said that they already got 10% off $1000 which is worth $100. He then asked people if they would trade that for free Prime and most people raised their hands.

    Except for the free food, Apple is not bad. Benefits get better with tenure.
    5+ years and you get 100% 401k match upto 6% (vests immediately). 21 days accrued PTO per year which can be cashed out (Add the thanksgiving and Christmas shutdowns and that’s 35 days paid vacation in a year)
    Most teams pay for your phone.
    Good gyms/showers.
    $100 commuter benefit.
    Free shuttles to SF, South San Jose.
    25% off Apple products and a once in 3 years discount of $500.

      May 1
    • Amazon Cducs
      I read the first year you get 12 vacation days and 12 sick days (accumulates 1 day a month). 12 days sick time a year seems like a lot, Is that accurate? Is apple stringent about using sick days for being sick or do people regularly use them as part of vacation?
      May 1
    • Apple amamwl
      Yes. 6% of base pay. Again this is only if you have 5+ years tenure. Otherwise 50%.
      Vacation really depends on your manager. I have seen managers being ok with people taking a few more days than what they have accrued. Taking out sick days for vacation is usually not needed. Not sure if that would fly..

    I would say the California state government if you don't consider TC. My hc premiums under calpers are 0 per month, and it is a PPO. Dental is about $10. 9/80 work schedule means every other Friday off. If I happen to turn into a fossil here and take a senior manager position, I could walk away with a pension at $6k a month or more at 62 (2%@62). That is, if the pensions don't explode. Also get FSA limit every year up to around $2-3k? TC nowhere near as good as tech.
