Moving from Daimler to Cruise

Anyone else made a similar transition from a more traditional company to a newer automotive vehicle company? Are there any benefits to this type of transition? Would you recommend it? How's cruise's culture?

Also what's the average salary for entry level SWE @ Cruise in SF?

    Cruise is toxic, everyone knows this, come on.

      Different in different parts of the company, and any company trying to do something this hard and unknown is going to feel like a pressure-cooker to some, but I’ve been extremely impressed with culture and management here.

      I disagree about culture but I agree about the pressure. Pressure is tricky. If not properly monitored it will eventually lead to be "toxic"
      But might be common across many start ups

      Hmm what parts of the company would you avoid? What parts do you like?

      I know a friend who works on their infra team and he’s hating his life there rofl. He said the codebase looks like a bunch of hackathon projects.

    Switched from Honda to Zoox last month. It takes quite an adjustment for sure

    I'm in the process of doing the same move so I'm curious to hear which departments to avoid at Cruise.

    Cruise has its own ups and downs. It could do a better management for sure. People are too reactive to shit. Sometimes just need to calm down and understand the problem before making a decision.

    Adjustment for sure. You can be exceptional at what you do in your role at Honda, but doesn't mean you're going to be exceptional at Zoox. That goes without saying.

    Depends on how you look at the opportunity and your background. It's an investment.
