I have an offer from Uber ATG with 50% salary hike but it seems like the company isn’t look good. (I’m on a visa and stability is more important than total comp)

    I want to know what the Uberites (is it Uberites?) think on this one. ☝️

    Self driving cars are NEVER coming. So many billions just being dumped into the abyss.

    If you can't lose this 50% hike, here's what I would recommend. Go join uber. Keep prepping and interviewing. Initially, you will be on ramp up so work load will be less and will be helpful for you to interview. Get another job in FANG and leave Uber. Also, don't worry too much about getting pip'ed at Uber as they won't remove someone who joined recently. It would take an year atleast for them to take such a decision. No point in staying at Microsoft regretting every day that you let go of a wonderful offer.

    Now, both current TC and Uber TC or GTFO.

      Then definitely take up Uber. 50% increase doesn't sound much but if you hear the number difference then you will get an idea. Human psychology u see. Update the post to have this comp difference and you will get much better replies.

    Join but keep interviewing and have backup offer ready. I think giving up 50% hike is not a good idea. And keep in touch with your team at Microsoft so you can always go back.

    Interview at other FAANG, use this offer as leverage but don't actually join. Also, it apparently has 1200+ employees! 1200! Twelve hundred! Basically a dramatic way if saying it's a huge cost with unclear end in sight. If I were an Uber shareholder I'd push for it to be shut down. If needed, license the tech from other companies.

      I understand but it’s hard to give up on 50% hike. I know it’ll matter nothing if things go south. I got a reject from other FANG

      More than 1200. 🤦‍♀️

    Sinking ship. Use this offer to get other offers. Attrition rate is insanely high. Many projects are super understaffed.

      Not really a sinking ship. It's never stood a chance to float. More like a u-boat.

    It’s a huge cost at a company working hard to reduce costs. Not exactly low risk

    Atg is actually one of the orgs at uber that perform pretty poorly. The resources budgeted to atg are not good too.
