What are some companies hiring new grads that pay similar to FANG/Big N? Applied to unicorns like Airbnb, Square, Uber, Dropbox, etc but haven’t heard back. Any other suggestions? Also would appreciate referrals too since it can take forever to hear back if I ever hear back at all

  • Other than particular financial companies like Jane St or Citadel, you're out of luck.

    Bloomberg pays $135k salary plus $15k bonus to new grads in NYC, for $150k TC. Afaik it beats Amazon TC for new grads, and probably also the new grad cash comp of Airbnb, Uber, Stripe etc

      Correct. No stock, but there is a 50% 401k match up to $7,750

      Considering that the 401(k) match is tax deductible, it's effectively an extra ~$11k TC if maxed out and valued the same as RSU's (which are not tax deductible)

      Also great WLB. 20 days' paid vacation and almost no one receives PIP. 40 hour weeks are the norm

      That TC is pretty low for NYC. Fb/G and even MS pay more for new grads like $150-190k TC

      What are MS new grad offers in NYC, excluding sign on? I've heard F/G can reach $200k for master's degree new grads, but I'm not sure if that applies to bachelor's degree grads. And keep in mind that at F you'd be working ~30% more hours per week for ~30% more pay than Bloomberg

      Not sure for MS. But fb and google reach 200k easily for new grad with Bachelor’s. And fb hours depends on team. I think reviews for WlB are mixed. Google wlb is the best in the industry

      Makes sense. Btw, I'm assuming we're excluding signing bonus in TC here. Is that also what you're assuming?

      Afaik Bloomberg and MS new grad TC is about the same, and higher than Amazon

      Including signing bonus. MS for new grad is 109k, 25k signing, 70k or 120k stock. MS and amazon have the lower end for new grad offers for the top tech companies. Easily 20-30k+ less than fb, G, or some top unicorns like Lyft, uber, etc

      Applied, did HackerRank but haven’t heard back, Twitter recruiting is a black hole (new grads don’t hear back until March), applied, not hiring new grads
