Out of 5 how would you rate different HW companies in the bay area?
If you can, scores on WLB, culture, comp, would help a lot. Add reasons for added help. TY

    Generally Apple pays highest unless you get hired by FAANGish hw side projects.
    Having said that I haven't come across anyone (yet) who is happy about any other aspect of working at Apple.

    Using the criteria of domain leader, aggressive but connected to reality, successful, innovating, open culture (in terms of employee communications and hierarchies) my vote goes to Nvidia

    Be warned though that I've mostly seen the domain from Nvidia eyes..

      confirming that FAANG-ish hw side projects do pay more than faang itself, to hire away the faang talent.

    I've seen a few posts on blind that mention how Broadcom pays just as well as Apple?

    Short answer: culture, WLB, growth, politics, etc. etc. all HW companies are similar, except Apple.
    Pay wise, Apple is way above the rest, perhaps with slightly worse WLB and maybe culture (too secretive and everything on need to know basis).
