I know this has been discussed to death, but can people working at Google, Amazon, AirBnb, Netflix, Dropbox and Uber (GAANDU) shed light on the compensation structure at L4/L5 levels?

      Letting the cat out of the bag — Gaandu in Hindi translate roughly as “asshole”.

      Sorry Expedia guy, we all should have been more inclusive. We should have stated the non-hindi version as well, but we all were busy laughing

    Traditionally Gaand means the Ass. Gaand is a noun and Gaandu is an adjective. 
    Mainly Gaandu is referred to a gentleman who licks someone else's Ass or Gaand in order to get benefits. It can also be referred to someone who gives his Ass for the same thing.

    Did anyone notice? Everyone got so distracted by the acronym, no one answered OP’s original question :p
    May 24, 2018 2
    • Was the original question meant to be answered or was it a question just framed to draw attention to his/her creativity?

      Now that I read the post again and how carefully it’s been framed, I say you are right fucklife ...but still...full credit for the creativity!

      LOL. Keywords ‘gm cruise careers’, google that to see why their recruiters are filling up my inbox (if not yours). Definitely more active in SoMa than the old standby G-word, General Electric.
