I have heard that Facebook data scientists are more similar to data analyst or BI engineers in other companies. How true is this?

Btw, do FB data scientist interviews ask LeetCode algorithm questions? Or is it just LeetCode SQL questions?

Thanks.

    That's odd, strange to see data scientist title without mention of building models in python,R,SAS, or Matlab.
