Facebook vs Twitter for DS

Hey folks,

First off if you got both L5 DS opportunity which one is a better choice? It sounds crazy but I'm hearing only ~250k TC for FB L5, while Twitter seems to pay more just bc it's in SF. Anyone know what a Twitter L5 DS pay actually is?

First off this is a very generic question where I'm in the loop for, no offer yet but I wanted to understand everyone's take.

I put Airbnb on this list bc I actually heard they have the strongest pay from these three.

If you vote Fb or Twitter please leave why you feel one is better than the other. Looking for how Blind community feels about this.

Factors I'm considering:
1) Pay
2) Growth opportunity
3) WLB

Currently at Google, ex Amazon.

      How's the culture there and growth aspect from your perspective? No crazy perf like Fb that makes you want to jump off a building?

      Twitter sounds amazing, only thing is that I heard refreshers are not as great at FB or G, do you have any insight into this. :)

    Simple. There’re only 2 companies worth working for atm: G and FB.

      I had worse WLB at G than I have now at FB. Random Blind whinnying isn’t such a trustworthy signal, tbh.

      Do you think you are the exception or almost everyone else?

      Dunno. I work on AI stuff (Research, PyTorch, etc). I believe there’s a ton of shitty work elsewhere in other teams. Same as in any big enough company. But what we do is super interesting and cutting edge.

      That doesn’t make FB one of the only places to work though, just shows you have a good team.

      And that’s what happens in any big company: there’s a ton of shitty teams at G, presumably even more than at FB, since G is at least twice as big. The pay and perks are top notch, tho. So, just join a team you like, there’re enough.

    Go to FB and then find yourself with suicidal tendencies after the first performance review. Go to Google and toss a coin. If its heads you might be on a team that's working on something interesting that will make you feel valuable. If its tails, you'll be doing a dead end job on a team that is completely demoralized. I don't know much about Airbnb or Twitter, but I believe that Twitter would be a better options. But do yourself a favor don't go to FB unless you are single and willing to enslave yourself for the next 4 years.

      Perf is meritocratic with faster promo than other places. You'd be fine coming from goog.
