If you have a choice between Google vs Facebook, both doing infrastructure/distributed systems work, what would you choose and why? I got accepted to both and am deciding where to go next. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
Awesome to look at from outside
Pain to build it
Those who built it are legends
Sometimes slaves were needed
And most importantly ... they are not built every day ... you build it with a lifetime assumption of 4-8 years. After building you just maintain and make incremental changes ... eventually you create a new project to replace the bridge or renovate it completely.
