Poll: New grad to Google, FB, or Stripe for learning?
TLDR; Where should a new grad go to have higher probability of growing into solid engineer?
Hi fellow Blinders,
I've been told that when deciding on your first job, you should try to focus on making a great choice vs. trying, in vain, to make an imperfect choice with imperfect data/lack of reference points as a new grad rookie.
However, I figured to make a better choice I could maybe reach out to the community to ask for some wisdom.
I'm strictly optimizing for learning and career growth opportunities (which might subsume TC and future employability/desirability as a SWE).
I interned at Google but the variance in team matching and the seemingly slower pace are concerns.
From research on Blind, I can't tell whether FB or Stripe would be better for a new grad who just wants to work hard. Is FB too big (similar to Google) to maximize learning and would Stripe be better?
Thanks in advance!
Obligatory: offer TC range 150-180 (loose range)
Disclaimer: I've heard all the recent stories about FB's high-intensity culture but that does not affect my perception of FB as an employer.
