Offer after passing HC?

Hey all. Just received an email from Two Sigma telling me I passed their hiring committee, but my application is basically still pending until management approves me. How safe is it to assume that I get an offer? Do they ever reject people after the hiring committee stage?

    Can we trade places? I don't really like it here.

    In general you need to get a team match here after HC. You shouldn't have trouble though, despite what Two Sigma tries to market itself as, it isn't a top tech company and most of the employees came from Goldman and other finance firms. So they'd be more than happy to have a Xoogler.

    Any idea if Google NYC is hiring for L3? Or is it still impossible to get a team match there?

      From what I've heard G NYC is basically not hiring at all, if it is headcount is like 1-2 open positions

      Been here for less than a year so my view might not be the most accurate. The tech and infrastructure here is worse than any decent tech company and you'll constantly get blocked or slowed down by it in your work.

      Nobody here is happy with it, I have not heard one nice thing from anyone about the tooling or infra, just constant complaints. But it's so deeply embedded that it's hard to get rid of, not to mention as a finance company good infra/tooling is one of their last priorities.

    You can safely assume you’ll get one but don’t base any life decisions on it.

      @Reddit I mean the recruiter literally just doesn't answer questions even after I got a return offer. They just ignore every email I send and avoid acknowledging the fact that I actually exist as a human. So yeah... no thanks don't really want to work there any time soon

      I’m still confused you already joined Google. Why don’t you just gchat or go grab lunch with them instead. Use your adult brain. They don’t owe you shit.
