Optimizing for TC (Seattle), which companies to talk to?

20 y. of exp., looking at SDE3.5 / Principal role (in Amazon terms). Currently thinking about Google, Facebook, Oracle. Heard that Netflix is opening an office here. Don't want to do go crazy with interviewing, so what others here give good comp? Not interested (at the moment) in lotteries like non-public startups.

    Maybe Microsoft if you have offers already. Or just use MS to bid up your other offers.

      Person I worked with recently (couple of months ago) moved to help bootstrap the team. Didn’t chat with him yet about the specific plans though

      I heard Tableau was the best for coasting. highest $/hour of all the public tech companies in Seattle (the US?)

      It is pretty chill here and there's really good TC.
      But Google and Msft can compete on that sometimes :)

    Microsoft is giving decent new hire offers currently. 65 could easily get 350k

      Btw how to tell if it 65, 66 or 67 when applying to the position? I mean - obviously I could ask recruiter, but maybe there is a faster way

      Ya you could ask, or I think they sometimes determine level based on how you do in the interview.

      Isn’t Microsoft better than OCI?

    Never see anyone "optimizing for fulfilling, meaningful work that isn't pulling at the fabric of society" 🤔
