Why isn't Twitter on the list of FAANGULTAD lol. Serious question though.

Facebook
Apple
Amazon
Netflix
Google
Uber
Lyft
Two Sigma
Airbnb
Dropbox

Also why is Dropbox on this list?
Also also, the question is how do y'all feel about Twitter?

What if you get L4 at Google vs senior at Twitter? Which one should I take?

    It’s FAANG. And if I had a say in it, I’d remove one A, one N, add Goldman Sachs, Oracle, and Tesla tbh. Then it should be perfect.

      Okay, that really wasn’t the point I was trying to make Google. What happens when we add all the firms I have listed?

      Hahaha I like that!
      Or you can just remove one A and one N and you get the same result

    Twitter has incompetent management and toxic culture. Some of my friends had worked or interned there.

    It is part of it, it’s called FANGT.

    We’re profitable and we have booze on tap and unlimited vacay. Come join the party.

      Unlimited vacation? Serious question how's WLB and can you actually go on vacation all the time?
      Sep 18
    • Twitter capsog
      Yes.

      WLB is good. 35-40 hours for most teams.
      Most ppl take 2 months per year off.

    These comments make me feel like I should never leave Google 😂

    Sounds like Twitter stocks going to not last. so it's not on the list. Should I just be happy being mediocre at Google? 😓

      Google offer details? And YOE?

      OP
      .... Ppl are so thirsty for details why don't you help answer my question. I currently work there no new offer. 4.5 YoE. Twitter someone hit me up regarding a senior role and it seems like the pay might be stronger than where I'm sitting. Hypothetical obviously so wanted to understand Twitter's overall sentiment and why it's not considered "prestigious."

    I have no freaking clue. But the real question is, how do y'all feel about Twitter compared to FANG?

      Twitter is good - fang has been somewhat misunderstood by folks - it’s companies that were high growth at some point of time from a stock point of view - not engineering or culture. They can be replaced anytime , doesn’t mean people will now jump to whatever new thing comes . This is merely for stock appreciation .

      So relax and don’t over Index on this

    • Amazon vriP37
      OP
      Yeah but currently I'm at Google and if Twitter stocks going to keep dropping I guess it's not worth moving to Twitter for a higher level and higher pay for now? But Google stocks has been soooooo flat.

    After Trump leaves office, twitter and many media orgs will take a hit.

    These platforms are only good for controversies. When there are none.. they will dwindle down.

      Not really. All future presidents will continue to use Twitter.

      Look at all the democratic contenders. They all use Twitter.

      There will always be controversies on the left and right.

  • Netflix / Eng OA3
    FANG is a list of internet companies. By revenue or market cap, Netflix is the number 4 in US and No.6 or 7 in the world. That's why it belongs to the group.
