Is Oculus a good org to join or should I try to get into the main fb group? Is it similar to fb in culture? Thanks!

    Do boot camp first before deciding. It's similar but during boot camp you'll have the ability to try out both and then some.

      Are you an engineer? You choose your team if you join. And yes it's pretty easy to move around.

      Yes. If you join as a general swe not preallocated everyone does the same boot camp. You'll have at least a week to even go sit with an Oculus team and work on small tasks to see if it's a good fit or not.

      But please don't be afraid to explore different teams. You'll have tons of time to talk to a bunch of team managers and try your hand at small tasks. Boot camp is very well setup don't worry.

      When I joined and I thought still the same oculus was different and hard to switch to if hired by main org. Same for what's app. Instagram not anymore

    Too much political, few old timers are ruining it. Eng Dir brought his EM from prior job and he knows shitt, Been in meetings where one of his employees had to scream at him

    • Is this for Oculus VR or Oculus research?

    Oculus’ culture is pretty different than Facebook’s. A lot more stressed and uncollaborative.

    Did you already get an offer?
    Oculus / FB / Instagram / Whatsapp ... none of that matters.
    What really matters is
    1) Your manager
    2) The team and what they work on

    You have a few weeks during bootcamp to pick your team.. take advantage of that.
