FAANG and professional side gigs / part time consultants?

New pvalue
Oct 22, 2018 2 Comments

What's the policy for professional side gigs and consultant arrangements if you're working at a big reputable tech company?

The side gig would be unrelated to your work's domain, and is not a primary source of income and involves only a few hours per month, for example:
- SDE in Microsoft Office team creating Android game apps
- Data Scientist at Facebook serving as a one-off or part-time consultant to a healthcare startup looking to understand how to deploy and use ML and AI in their industry.

First question: Will FAANG allow you to pursue professional side gig opportunities?

Second question: Should you declare it even if allowed? Would that make you seem less committed?
