Have the scandals and plummeting stock price made it easier to get an offer from Facebook?

    We're definitely not going to lower the bar to make the product worse.

      Haha okay. If there's a single HC, how the f did G lowered their bar. Can one get into Google Cloud and move to another team easily?

      There’s no way there’s the same competition to join as there once was. Sorry FBers, your company is in decline.

      Lol. Yes I haz salt, primarily due to the terrible interview experience where my super egotistical first interviewer literally laughed in my face because I got stuck; the recruiters that reach out to setup calls then no-call no-show then ghost; the amount of Trumpism and theft that Zuck funded with the slimey Oculus acquisition; and finally, with the general lack of respect for users and the undermining of democracy in the US and UK.

      Really great company and culture you’ve got there!

    Actually best time to join since RSUs are based on the current price, which is temporarily depressed.

    I would imagine with lower quotas it’d just be harder. I don’t think they’ve lost THAT much prestige in the eyes of potential applicants. They still pay top dollar.

    Much harder. Bigger pool of applicants, more streamline and training for interviewers to remove bias and emotions.

    So what y’all are trying to say is that the same amount and caliber of top talent wants to join Facebook despite everything it’s been through lately? This sounds unlikely to me why would I join a company with a falling stock price and impending regulation if I can go anywhere?

      Because the product itself and the value it brings hasn’t dropped. Their numbers are strong

    They have to offer much more number of shares to keep the same TC level, you wish it would be easier?
