i need to decide soon both are for senior computer vision eng/scientist roles. cruise's offer is 20% more including their stock.

I don't live in the area and if i accept any of these offers I'll be living in south bay somewhere.

    Cruise if you want to move fast and work on impactful things where you get to see your work run on the road. Google if you want to go slow, take your time

      Lmao! This is funny. Cruise is so behind that they haven't even been mentioned anymore as leaders in the space. Ahahahaha.

      gdgfsyeh I’m sure you’re doing fantastic at your new gig that you have so much time to shitpost every cruise related thread. Try to not get canned there also

      Can confirm this. I had the same choice and chose cruise because you are working on something that matters. Go to Google If you want to take it easy.
      It's true that some teams seem to have their challenges though so make sure to meet and get to know your team before accepting your offer. I found a good team and am pretty happy here

      Yup highly dependent on team. Some departments in general are a bit more dysfunctional though (I’m thinking Ground truth, data infra)

    Google! Their stock easily beats cruise’s paper money. And more prestige yo!

      Syj is a moron. Not liquid. We literally had someone ask in all hands if we could be able to sell on secondary market. Was told firm no by CEO

      Cruise is interesting, smallish and has some growing up. Could really take off. Google is more certain, likely get refreshers, possibly more mobility. Don’t commute from the south bay to the city. It’s terrible.

    Go to Google if you’re interested in AV tech. It’s no good here.

      I wonder how much better it is at Google. Their employees were pretty stealthy so far

      It's pretty good here for me.

    Just FYI, discount your cruise stock to be worth 0 and then make this choice. Cruise has some strong positives like interesting problem, and typical fast growing company problems like tech debt. But the stock is ridiculously overvalued and realistically going to be ages if ever until it's liquid. Apply a serious discount like 80 percent +

    If you’re going to live in the South Bay, then choosing Google is a no-brainer to avoid a hellish commute.

    Cruise is most definitely not a startup any more. You won’t be getting startup upside in terms of money or personal growth, and you won’t get Google’s stability or perks either.

    Check Glassdoor and other threads here for reports of toxicity at Cruise.

      There is some lobbying going on on Glassdoor with fake reviews both positive and negative. Probably a lot of them added by salty competitors.

      At least with Uber everyone knows publicly that it's a complete shitshow there. Also cruise isn't "killing someone on the road" bad

      Spoke with a girl from Uber, she said all the rumors about Uber is quite exaggerated. There is no truth anymore anywhere.

      this. Learn from my mistake. I underestimated commute impact and living a hell life, always feel Caltrain has been taking away 80% of my energy every day.

    Chose google if you want to leave in nice suburbs and chill and chose Cruise if you want risky startup in SF. That’s about it.

    You are not losing much by joining cruise and the upside could be huge. You could be the missing element here. Even googles own director joined us.

      Probably like 225-250 base + bonus. Not that unheard of

    • Cruise Automation ninja-ga
      That’s staff not senior. Unless you have pretty different brackets at AV/vision
