I was lucky enough to get offers from both of them. Now what matters is the team. Can anyone give feedback from the following teams? I know FB does bootcamp, but I'm taking to teams that have head count. I have 3 years of experience. E4 for FB and E3 for Goog.

Google:
YouTube
YouTube Kids
Google Maps
Google Cloud Platform API Services
Firebase

Facebook:
Messenger
Instagram
Whatsapp

Any other teams you guys would recommend?

      Why not Youtube? Thought it’s one of the best?

    I’m pretty much in the exact same situation. Is location a factor for you? Sounds easier to be in SF for google because of their SF office & San Bruno office

      Ahh I see. Well just in case you don’t already know this, most of YouTube is in San Bruno.

    FB. If you don’t mind, can you share your preparation method?

      ~300 LC questions mostly easy/medium questions, reviewed platform specific interview questions, did big companies last so I’d be warmed up from my previous interviews, also studied behavioral questions and made sure my problem solving process is sound

      Don’t they ask leetcode hard during interviews?

      How did you “study” behavioral questions? Any resources to share?

      OP
      Study isn’t the best word. I reviewed my answers to the most common behavioral questions and made sure my answers were solid and were reflective of my skill level.

      Also i did LC hard but only the most common questions. If you do enough problems you’ll be able to feel your way through unknown problems.

    I was in a similar situation last month, chose FB. But I was iOS so G was never my first choice, though I did like Maps team a lot. It’ll be funny if we’re in the same boot camp, I postponed my start date to have a long vacation.

      That’s awesome. Which team at FB are you thinking of joining?

      I talked to a lot of ppl at Insta so that’s my first choice.

      That’s great! Maybe we’ll see each other around at campus if I end up choosing FB since Insta is one of my top choices as well

    OP, did you end up making a decision and getting your final comp numbers?

    • Coursera dHdg21ajal
      Yes, I ended up choosing FB. I ultimately got downleveled by Goog to L3 because of YoE. Main reason I chose FB is because of career trajectory, FB has a very energetic culture, and has much smaller teams that move much faster. Final numbers were 160/300/100 which Goog was willing to match

    How did you find head count for Facebook?

      OP
      Told my recruiter that it’s between FB and Google so he’s introducing me to teams i’m interested in that have headcount since teams are my deciding factor
