Can't get into FAANG, so pick who (list below)?
I really cannot-make-it. Looks like the only offers I will be getting are not FAANG, not even FAANG-like, e.g. MSFT.
Position is Data/Research scientist doing real ML and DL work, not SQL monkey.
Still interviewing. Have offers for some, others just finished on-site and was good. Will prob get full pic by mid September.
Choices are: Expedia, Wayfair, Chase, Hewlett-Packard, SAS, Bloomberg, AIG.
This is mostly for SDE 2 type of seniority. PhD with 2yrs experience. Nobody seems to be able to break $200k TC so far... :(
If getting to FAANG is my life goal, which one would be a good stepping stone?
