Got offers both from Google and Facebook for level 5 positions. Compensation is comparable and I'm excited about both companies. Not sure which one to

Google pros:
Better wlb
Better level (usually Google gives level 4 for people who get level 5 at FB)
More meaningful work (making better products instead of maximing time spend on Facebook :-))

Facebook pros:
More dynamic culture and less burocracy and politics
Easier to get a promo

What are you thoughts and advices to me, dear "blinders"?

    TC breakdown at each pls? All we care about is TC. We don’t care about how one feels.

    You know the pros and cons and I believe you are an adult.

    I've worked for both. I would have chosen Google because it's like nothing else. They're several years ahead of FB in terms of technology, and it's great to try out just to see how things could be.

    I'm very much life-over-work though.

    You won’t learn much at either company, but you’ll be comfortable and make good, unrisky money. I’ve done three years at each and just got bored. I’d make a play for either a unicorn or Snap. But hey, I’m maybe a little risk prone than most other engineers.
