I got an offer from Home Depot e-commerce group for Sr. Data Scientist while Pandora offered me a position for Research Scientist. They both offer almost the same TC so which one to choose?
Pandora culture is unparalleled. Bias of course but it really is different from other companies. People actually care about each other and about the product. Pandora’s making a huge investment in the now expanded Atlanta office so expect Atlanta to be HQ 2.0. If you work in tech then the Pandora name will likely do you a lot better than Home Depot. If you’re a scientist at Pandora you’ll be tinkering around with what makes Pandora special and what Pandora has always been doing (great recommendations and knowing what people like to listen to).
