New / Eng deception.
May 5 19 Comments

Google Warsaw: 120-125k PLN/30-35k USD, stocks 75k USD/4 yrs, 10-15k PLN/3-3.5k USD sign on bonus

Some HFT in India: ~3.0 million INR/46k USD base + ~1.5 million INR/23k USD (max) performance based bonus

Which one is better? How is the Google Warsaw office in terms of work and future opportunities?

  • I would say google warsaw since for fresh graduate you will be able to learn a lot from there.
    Are you from Poland? If not you must take in mind that you must learn Polish. Polish is required for comfort living there.

      Agreed. Also poland is a homogenous society with 99% of white people. If you are not white you might not feel comfortable there

      You might experience some racism. If I were you, I’d take it. You’re young, explore Europe for a year and request a transfer to the US.

      You don’t need Polish to live in Warsaw.

    Google Warsaw TC is a joke, but you can transfer to Zurich after a year or two where you can make good money.

      It's strange that the HFT has a such a low maximum bonus cap. Which markets and products do they trade? I would take the Warsaw offer and try to transfer to US (MTV, NY, SEA).

      Seems like the worst of all worlds; HFT pressure in India with low comp.

    Google, its a no brainer. No hft in India is comparable to having Google on your resume.

      Why? I’m sure it’s not that bad. Where are you from?
