Assuming I have identical offers from each of these three companies, which one would be best to join?

Considering:
- growth/learning opportunities
- weight on resume
- culture
- outlook
- etc.

    Indeed all they way. Indeed’s perk/salary/WLB is top tier. IBM and Cisco are good but not comparable to Indeed TBH.

    IBM is career suicide

      Hmm I would be weary to join if I were you. IBM is not the best place for career development, unless this is like your first job out of school

      Thanks ya I’m leaning against IBM unless I don’t get any offers from the other two. Expecting one from Cisco. Still have a final interview with indeed

      A lot will depend on your personality and values. Cisco is a very ethical company, not just boilerplate PR but ingrained in the culture. It’s so pervasive that it’s never mentioned and brought up, it just is. For people who like to fish in grey waters this can be an uncomfortable place. They would be better off at DellEMC or Vmware.

      "ethical company" as in it doesn't do business with the baddies?

    • Cisco / Product U there
      Lol are you saying Cisco is better than DellEMX(total agree🤣) and VMware (🤔)?

    did you get an offer extended by indeed? it looks like they are on a hiring freeze and are only interviewing candidates but not giving offers

      No offer from indeed. Still in the process. Offer from ibm cloud, don’t want to reveal offer details because I’m more interested in joining a company I’ll be happy at. Expecting an offer from Cisco.

      just an advice, make sure indeed is capable of extending an offer if you do well in your interview...I personally know people who cleared interviews and have been on standby for more than 2 months due to hiring freeze

    • Indeed Robynhood
      We are extending offers. It is contingent upon the area/role you’re hiring into and the pause is projected to be lifted on all other roles very soon.

    You sure it’s Indeed and not like Oracle?

      OP
      Don’t have offers from all three yet. Expecting one from Cisco next week. But honestly, unless one is far better than the others I care mainly about joining the right company

  • Cisco / Sales txrxmx
    What’s the role

  • IBM Research is not bad. Other divisions are.

  • IBM / Project UmmYeah789
    I wouldn't suggest IBM. They have way too many layoffs

    In Austin Indeed is obviously the best.. maybe in the Bay people would pick Cisco, idk. Definitely not IBM

  • Amazon / Eng KTUv41
