Apr 20, 2018 35 Comments

Sde1 at Amazon for ~2 years , have total 4.5 experience.

GOOGLE Seattle Level4 - 150k+400(100 yearly)+30k signon +minimum 15% bonus ,

FB Seattle Level 4 - 160k + 350k equity 4 years + 60k signon.

LINKEDIN Senior Swe Sunnyvale - 175k + 300k stock + 50k signon + 10% year end bonus.

Current comp 145k total

LinkedIn looks pretty interesting workwise. Also they are offering a senior role(though I haven't done any senior.work till now lol!!).

Google and Facebook is I guess entry level.

Facebook recruiter mentioned about bootcamp to decide team not sure how risky it is to.not.team upfront.
Google is in advertising domain (meh!!) got team match calls only from those.

Leaning towards LinkedIn, but G/F has better growth prospects ??
Can I switch team I Google after couple of months ?

Any thoughts?
Thx for help.

    Go to Google. Having Google on resume will carry a lot of weight

      Ads is good. Always go to money making org.

    Unbiased response here. Pick the best manager. Even if it’s not at my company. Especially at a non-entry level a manager can either accelerate or derail your career. Brand name and prestige mean nothing. I repeat NOTHING. Which manager have you spoken to thats willing to give you the work you desire, or the growth and challenge you need? Which manager is willing to shield you from bullshit and go to bat for you?

    Google for your future prospect or next job. LinkedIn might look great as you said but for now only. Linkedin is much easier to get into than Google

    Google and FB are not entry level. The entry level is 3. Senior soft engr at lnkd is equal to 4 at G/FB. Pick either of them; you can hardly go wrong and you can always switch teams if you don’t like the work. The important thing is to get your foot on the other side of the door.

    I’m going through his exact same situation and will probably decline Goog and accept LinkedIn.

    While I don’t doubt G is the best name to have on resume, LinkedIn still opens majority of doors G would.

    Those all seem great, join the one that excites you the most. I wouldn’t put too much weight in titles. Bars vary wildly.

    I won’t comment on your choice from a career perspective (because I’ve never worked at any of those companies) but keep in mind Seattle is much more affordable than Sunnyvale!

      Also way more cold and wet

      Way more cold - not sure about that. Rarely goes below freezing even in January. Much milder than e.g. east coast or Midwest. It is much more wet, but there are worse cities than Seattle (e.g. Vancouver BC) since we have Olympic Mtns to partially shield us from the clouds.

      No state income tax so it's like you got a 10% hike with companies which have same comp in Bay area and here (FB, Google...)

      Do people get depressed due to the weather?
      Apr 20, 2018
    • Amazon dalejrjr
      Yes. Supplement with vitamin D and skii or snowshoe during winter and it's fine

    I'd suggest LinkedIn. How did you do your preparation? And what programming language did you use during interviews?
