New Grad Google vs Facebook vs Apple?

FB --
Google --
Apple --
EDIT: Total comp removed, it's roughly the same all around so it shouldn't be a huge factor either way


Placed on Ads at Google (specific team matching happens later)
Offer from Apple is for a new team building out a data pipeline and infrastructure for computer vision researchers, seems like I'll have a lot of opportunity for impact but changing teams seems much harder than, say, at Google

Any thoughts on where I'll be able to grow the most?

    How are you a new grad if you are working at Yelp? Or are you joining as L3 with exp?

    What’s the breakdown of TC, are you including signing?

      They're 115-125k base, the rest is target bonus and equity/4. Signing is all roughly equivalent so I didn't include it

      $125k + 40k RSU + 15k target bonus for google? Never heard of that before (180k TC that is)

    Join FB or Google for their NYC or SF offices.

    Cupertino sucks and the commute there from SF sucks.

    As a new grad, being in the city is much better.

    From the post I’d say Apple because it seems more interesting than anything

    Google. I like Apple but Google is still king, and supposedly better infra than FB.

    Apple then move to google later with big TC. This is just opinion

    The work at Apple sounds the most interesting, and getting computer vision experience is going to be incredibly valuable moving forward in your career.

    Just based off of project description I would go with Apple, but that’s personal preference
