Dear blind community,
Hoping to get some advice on some offers. Have to pick between,
Salesforce: 330K (Non core distributed systems project)
Rubrik: 360K (Likely involves tech debt work in near term)
WeWork: 360K (?)
Rubrik and wework are pre IPO so their numbers are projections. Rubrik is probably closer to reality that WeWork IMO. Base for all of them is in the range of 210-240K. Any suggestions?
Current TC: 250K
Dear blind community,
- Rubrik fatboyqHere's my take. WeWork is definitely out. Not even a worthwhile option. Salesforce is fine if you want an easy life, don't mind the mediocrity, don't particularly care to do aggressive career building, and don't mind the commute to SF. Rubrik is not perfect by any means, and has its unique challenges, but there are plenty of opportunities to push your career forward. Also, not working hard is not really an option at Rubrik. So, to me, the question is what do you want? Do you want to take it easy or would you like to strive to push your career forward.
- You have a CEO who cashed out $700 million before the ipo. Hippie shitty policies such as no expensing of meals containing meat. Softbank walking out of investing more money.
On top of all that you have a company that is going to be hit significantly the moment there is a downturn in the tech industry. Want more?Jul 29 2
- Everything you just said is propoganda quoted word by word from the media - i can answer each one.
Softbank walking out? They invested 10bn... Is that walking out?
Hit on a downturn? WeWork has over 40% of customers (and growing) as enterprises with 3-5 year commitment.
No meat policy - not really interfering, just more sushi yay
CEO cash out - it was done over a about 3-4 years, not before an IPO, and the money way used to buy buildings which he tied in contract to WeWork, which means he bets his own assets on the company. And besides, he still the largest stakeholder after all that, so is that really a cash out?
I think you should stop believing the shit talk and start opening you mind dudeJul 29 3
- Lol you actually see the ceo renting out his own buildings to his own company as a positive sign. That’s a big fucking red flag indicating the lack of any decent corporate governance. Man looks like the kool aid over there is stronger than the one at Tesla.
Lack of further investment by SoftBank is a pretty fucking big red flag. Things like the no meat policy are indicative of a distorted and clueless leadership that is wasting time and resources on useless policies. Get out of the reality distortion field and maybe you’ll realize then that everything is not propaganda or fud.Jul 29 2
- I would stay the fuck away from WeWork. If there ever was a walking red flag it would be that company.
- If you sold a private company and went to Nutanix, I’m assuming your private company didn’t do so well. I don’t see anything special about Salesforce. There aren’t that many cool things they look like they’ll be working on as well. Comp wise they’re okay I guess. Their hiring bar is also pretty low so you’re not likely to work with impressive people. Unless you want to rest and vest, not sure why you would go there. Even then there’s better places, F/G/LI for example.
- @knowbody could you elaborate a few reasons why salesforce is not so great in your opinion? Just a clarification the group that I am looking at is not the core salesforce which is what you may be alluding to. I interviewed at several places, rubrik was great of course but I have no reason to knock down my experience at salesforce as well. It was more or less a standard bay area interview so I am not sure about the bar being low.
- Rubrik fatboyqTo uplevel the conversation a bit, OP's current employer (VMware) builds and sells solid software products. So does Salesforce and Rubrik. That's their bread and butter and thus they have an engineering culture in place.
WeWork is extremely innovative in what it did and deserves to be wildly successful, but it's bread and butter is not selling software. When I suggested the OP to not consider WeWork, that is an important aspect. The scandals matter too, but that's a personal moral compass. E.g. I could never work for Facebook or Uber, and the way silicon valley is going, that list is rapidly increasing. But there are 10000s of employees who are perfectly happy and successful there.
That said, WeWork could be investing heavily into it's software arm, and that may be a worthwhile opportunity for the OP to consider. WeWork employees should help OP understand those considerations. But they start out defending. There is so much to defend.
- Why wouldn't i defend it when you lay (false) accusation after accusation? And then you go and write a post like this one instead of answering me directly.
Look dude, if red flags like partying and spending money scare you, startups are not for you. Its not like wework did experiments on people and got them into depression (FB) or it lists their employees as contractors to not pay them benefits (uber), on the contrary - our cleaning people get RSUs tooJul 30 0
