Interview process at Compass, Redfin and Cruise Automation?

After a long time at FB, I am thinking of venturing out. Any one willing to share their interview experience at Compass / Redfin and Cruise Automation for PM role? Considering Uber and Lyft as well, mostly due to the equity upside. I heard Lyft is giving $2m worth of RSUs when you join at a Senior level (vested over 4 yrs), though not sure about the validity of that claim. Please share your recent experience with these companies.
TIA

      I just started working at Redfin ~6 months ago and love the culture here.. given a small team it could be a few unhappy people that are loud that’s creating a bad rep..

      I've been a dev here for over two years and have only experienced good things. I see lots of claims in this thread with zero details whatsoever

    All of them great choices, except for Redfin. Have heard horror stories from friends.

      Will you share more? I think the PM org is well run at Redfin.

    I keep seeing "horror stories" but no details. Could someone explain? Doesn't describe the experience I've had.

      The work environment on average is toxic and can be hostile thanks to Glenn Kelman. Managers walk around on eggshells wondering if he will blow up or not. There have been countless examples where he has screamed at or bullied employees only to keep calling them later to apologize. It’s a recurring pattern.

      @drluscious I have been here for over two years and have never heard such a thing. Do you have an example?

      I know agents who left because of the toxic environment.

    Curious to know what if anything you found out about Compass. Did you interview there or skip it? There is a story floating around that Amazon will absorb them, but listening to ppl who work there, they seem to doubt it.

      The only place I've heard people talk about amazon acquiring compass is on blind, as hearsay. I think there's basically no chance of that happening.

      Got the offer from cruise. Their equity piece is too low, less than half compared to what i am getting at other places. Thoughts?

      Yeah the equity will be lower but it’s all Monopoly money anyways, you need to make your risk adjustment based on your risk profile. If you’re bullish on self driving and the industry or not
