Deciding between the 3 offers below for summer internship. The most important criteria for me is getting a FT offer in NY post internship. Background: attend a top 1/2 CS school and already have Apple on resume.
Google and Citadel have given me NY placement/teams and so I’m leaning towards those two. However I’m worried about the FT conversion process at Google not being a guarantee (especially FT location), compared to Citadels straightforward performance based conversion process. Furthermore, the team at Google is networking/infra, and I think the work on a market-facing Citadel team could be a lot cooler/more interesting. On the flip side, I'm worried that going down a FT path at Citadel might close off paths back into the product world in tech. Overall, I don't care a lot about the money or the clout so FT location in NY is my biggest decider, but I don't want to make a "wrong" decision here. Any thoughts?
There have been a lot of movement from Citadel to Google but not so much vice-versa.
I will suggest Google if its for SWE role for both. You can always change teams inside Google to what you like.
