      Aren't you curious? Think big about that! The name alone implies all sorts of things about being a neighbor and either establishing or strengthening a local community. There's probably tons of great work to be done there.

    I say FB not because the products or the problems itself is interesting, but as new grad, you have the opportunity to engage with so many talented designers, and an world-class design team. Get yourself in and soak up in the processes, the problems, the people, and the place. Learn as much as you can and put a stamp on what you’ve shipped while you are there. After 2-3, 5 years, you will be able to pick which company you want to work for. Trust me.

    I’d also suggest Etsy. They have fantastic UX/UI design and seem to beautifully merge design and development. If you’re a ‘maker’ too you’ll love their craft studio.

    I’d definitely consider Uber. You learn a lot fast and are surrounded by people who really love their craft and are willing to help you grow.

      FYI Uber pays shit for their designers.

    I think it probably depends more on the team than the actual company. A lot of people bash on IBM, but as a new grad designer I’ve had a blast so far. I personally work at a small branch of IBM that focuses on pushing out proof of concepts for clients who want to utilize IBM technology. I get to work on multiple different projects from nearly every industry sector, almost like an agency, and my skills over the last year have increased dramatically. My team focuses a bit less on traditional IBM design thinking than it does building quality prototypes and POCs, but I still get all the benefits of learning design thinking methodologies when working on longer term projects.

    IBM Design...

    but not for the long haul. For a such a gigantic company they do a great job of giving designers room for creative expression. You’ll learn a lot about design from peers and mentors ... the org and frustrations with management will eventually push you away. I’ve grown a lot in the last 2.5 years but I’m sensing that it’s about time to move on.
