    Agree they had some serious issues with their interview process but the culture has been shifting rapidly and they're definitely aware this is a problem and working to correct. I moved from FB to Oculus and still went through interview process and think in some ways Oculus process was easier, but not sure if that's because I was internal. The comp is equivalent to FB as levels/ladders are the same. There has been a massive overhaul of leadership in last few months and I think it's for the best for the company and culture but those who have been there since the beginning likely don't see it that way so there is tension. Personally I liked the vibe at oculus now better than rest of FB (and fwiw I'm not a gamer). Though I do think oculus is getting more assimilated so not sure how long the differences will last.

      Cannot say it better, massive +1 to all the points but the comparison with FB interview (I didn't do that)

    Oculus were very arrogant in their interview process, and never replied back after the loop. Seems a very Valve like culture too in the Redmond studio. Can't comment on FB, but wouldn't recommend applying to Oculus unless you like being treated like dirt.
