Let’s assume someone with 1 yoe gets the same software engineering role at all 3 and team-specific culture is kind of the same with same kind of manager and co-workers (big assumption but hey), which company would be the best to work for?

Variables would include: average comp, benefits, future promotions, Blind’s favorite - prestige, brand name for resume, office location, company culture etc

    I gave up Msft for Bloomberg , the best choice ever .
    Live in NYC instead of Seattle
    Have a excellent Work life balance in New York, which is so rare and
    Got a higher TC in BB and it’s all the paper money

    If you can live and work in NYC with a decent 150k , you are probably living the best possible version of your life.

      Dude, Microsoft offered me 276K which is more than 330K in NYC or around 194K after taxes WITHOUT ACCOUNTING FOR THE COST OF LIVING. If you factor into that the fact that in Seattle a luxury apartment is less than 2K per month, you fucked yourself royally and are so unaware that you passed on a better deal...

      P.S. Bloomberg will never pay you 330K. Ever.

      You are alive ! We missed you buddy ! 😭 We were so worried about you when you stopped posting. Glad to hear you jumped ship safely. Come back to the lounge sometimes. Don't be a stranger.

      Guys chill the f&$k out!
      I grew up poor , so the money I make right now has given me things I always dreamed of and I am very happy with where I am in my life.
      After a certain point all the extra money is will only help you posses materialistic things or costly experience which might seem cool.
      I would strongly suggest you take a step back from the grind and have a moment for yourself

      Oh you forgot to mention that we have bbg radio in the bathrooms. That's cool.

      And the TV/radio/news on website/BPipe is distributed how? And you think like "the cloud" exists in the .. well.. sky somehow? Google has a couple of locations in America. Same with Amazon, where they host most of "the cloud" for America. Like the mentioned we replicate/host stuff also off premise but we are where we are to be colocated with the exchanges.
      See what I was saying about inflated egos...

      Amazon has data centers around the world and you can deploy your application to any of them. Bbg has only two data centers in ny and nj. Clients from Japan hit ny/nj machines when they run terminal functions. What collocation are you talking about. I don't know if they have their own CDN for TV/website. I know that media is losing money and is being subsidized by the terminal. I don't think there is a compelling reason for our own CDN.

      Tsc tsc tsc.. you brought out the money argument. So you say you're more of an engineer if you dump your shit into some else's datacenters than managing your own? We're talking about tech here. And so what if they have around the world. Do you think they don't have latency issues from one region to another? If you have that big of a hard on for cloud, join BCS and become an openstack sysadmin. You'll have all the toys that the cool kids play with and then some.
      See ? Inflated ego. Can't handle an argument rationally.

    • Bloomberg 🌴🌴🌴50
      So it's true what they say. Bbg is either people who got pip'ed at other companies or people who want to go to other companies. 🤔
