Considering accepting an offer with FB but not yet sold. Wondering what the biggest differences people who have moved between the two companies (either direction) have noticed.
For reference, I feel good about Uber overall, both in terms of my role / potential growth and the company as a whole.
- If you feel good about Uber why make a change. There is always some unknown risk. FB wlb and fire culture makes it a bigger risk.

- UbertappExpect a lot harder to get promoted at FB. You need to show impact to get to the next level - but here’s the thing, everyone is chasing that impact. At Uber, it’s a lot easier to make impact and we’re also less impact-obsessed.
The people I know that did well at FB we’re people who joined new teams early (eg first 10 engineers in Messenger or first 30 engineers at FB London). For others, it’s a hit & miss. For me, I like having more space to make an impact.
