    I would really second guess it. I moved to a much lesser known company from Microsoft because I was inspired by the mission. Needless to say I'm trying to get back to Microsoft now. There's so many intangibles that you get from a larger company including great peer talent, pay, benefits, and potential for career pivots within the same company.

      Actually I can probably infer this from inspecting our new hires tbh

      I’m curious because I see that NYC bank engineering hiring is underway. I’ve started talks already, but I have something else that looks promising.

    We’re probably more fast-moving than Google and you can probably have a bigger impact on the company here / climb the ranks faster because we’re growing

    Why??? I think we all can agree Google isn’t perfect, but it’s still better than the average company. So unless your new gig is above average, which I don’t think this is, do not move!

    Affirm is not like other top tech companies in the Bay Area. There are many guys from big banks and hedge funds in the Wall Street. They also brought their cultures...
