Bloomberg DINE<GO>
Aug 1 23 Comments

I set a goal to earn 0.5M a year before 30.
Currently I am at 220k, 5 YoE, West Coast FamousCo background, went to Brooklyn College for free(didn't have 💰 for top schools, didn't bother spending money to apply.), age 27.

What to do?

Options include
1. Citadel. Easier but short lifespan of SWE
2. Two-Sigma. Extraordinarily difficult.
3. Jane Street. I interviewed and was turned down. Problems felt like if you knew the trick you be able to solve it.
4. Google. Never tried. Was scarred after an internship interview. Same with FB.

I ♥️ NYC

Plz advise.

      Fb is doable if u if you go to menlo park. You wont have time to do anything else so might as well move out of nyc and to menlo park for a few years

      What's so special about Menlo Park that other fb locations don't offer?

    Why you do you have google in the list? It’s way low in terms of TC compare to the others

    How about getting an E5 offer at FB for around 400K next year? Then with refreshers or promo you should have 500K in 2 years.

      That's closer to E6 comp. It's not easy to get an E6 offer coming from outside FB.

      UPS actually pays their night/morning loading shifts quite well considering the type of job. Not to mention you do not need to go to gym 😉

      Already considered it. Not good looking and no demand for hairy straight men.

    No way. Even if you could save $150k from salary and signing bonus over the next 3 years you still need >15% growth on 220k every year
