Got a pretty decent offer there, but looking at overall WLB, and career trajectory. Pay is pretty good I hear - and you guys are moving to Hudson yards soon, right?

      @BankOfWest - Chase isn’t giving me stock. They’re giving a higher base rate, and I’m asking around at the WLB.

    Without a discussion of your current role and Chase role, it's impossible to answer this question . In general , banking sucks compared to technology if you are on the technology side , and specially in banks which are highly cyclical. There are very few people who would come from Google to Chase uneless you get a high profile role with a high guaranteed bonus

      Not bad, 3 coding + system design, hardest part is every interviewer bombarding you with Leadership Principles based questions.

      Wow. I know nothing of amazon though, but I’ve heard bad stories. Hopefully that won’t be your experience.

    I’ve worked in NY finance. I’d only leave Google for a big bank if I’m PIP’ed out of Google, or if for some reason I found Google to be insufferably pretentious. I could see leaving Google for a boutique investment firm, but for the love of god not a big retail bank!

    Banking is good for work life balance. People spend lifetime in banking roles which I still find weird. If the money is good and you see a path with runway go for it. It would be v diff from tech and at times slow when you want to make changes and move fast. Good luck 👍

    Apart from turnover which other bank isn’t backward thinking and dysfunctional?
