Got a verbal offer for senior eng from a recruiter. Will post offer details when in. In the mean time, what are your guys thoughts on cruises eng culture? How's the internal sentiment on where the business is going? How does the tech compare to that of the tech giants?

    Massive tech debt and engineering anti patterns everywhere.

    I’ve worked at both Cruise and FANG. Cruise is worse in every conceivable way, except that self driving cars are a cool idea. Eng culture is awful. My recommendation is to look elsewhere.

      Is it because of inexperienced managers or clueless leadership? When I interviewed, they all look very inexperienced and have narrow view. One interviewer told me the first few engineers were really bad but they started hiring quality candidates who have been improving the platform. How is ML platform?

      My gripes were mostly with leadership, but it is true there are many inexperienced managers. I don’t know much about ML platform directly

    I've heard that the culture there is less than to be desired.

    Between people that I know there as well as the candidates that I've recently interviewed that are currently looking to get out, a common theme has occurred. It sounds as if the problem space there is amazing, but the Senior Leadership has created and is fostering a Lord of the Flies environment. The most disheartening part is that it sounds like the concerns are bubbled up to HR and leadership themselves and still no change.

    Don’t do it, seriously. So dysfunctional.

    I think it has a bright future. I didn’t pass their on site but they seem enthusiastic about their work and future. They claim they are no 2 with huge lead to no 3. They are backed by GM and Honda. I think it is a great deal if you don’t need liquid money for the next 3-5 years.

      They used to give liquid money tied to value of GM stock but no more.

    They used to, but now give internal Cruise shares like all good startups.
