FB or Google for HW?

New FUdge!
Dec 11, 2018 23 Comments

Google offer is $7k more than FB.
I would like to hear pros and cons from HW folks at these companies.
Google role is in consumer electronics. Facebook role is in infrastructure.

YOE: 5
TC: $280k highest offer

      I was @ Apple before and hated it. I never worked in an environment with so much office politics. I’m never going back

    $7k makes no difference in your standard of living. It's like $65 per week after taxes. Join Google.

    Which part of HW? Consumer or data centers? If consumer, go to Google. If data centres, choose FB.

      Google is consumer products. Facebook is infrastructure

      Take up Google. You'll have a very diverse group of products to work on.

      what’s your take on FB’s HW team?

  • Facebook is radioactive right now do you want that on your resume? "I worked at a radioactive company making radioactive products that steal peoples' personal data"???

      Nah, the reputation is still good, but FB HW is in general not on par with G, Apple, or even Amazon.
