Rate your company’s reputation/brand/prestige?

All the tech company tier lists I’ve seen seem kind of shitty, so what do employees think about their current company’s prestige in terms of the brand name looking good on the resume or good reputation for having the best engineering talent?

Please rate your company’s prestige from 1 to 4, 1 being most prestigious (Google) and 4 being least but still a household brand name (eg. IBM). 5+ is for any other company that’s not prestigious or too new or too small to be known or possibly not in tech (e.g. Starbucks).

I’ll start. I would say OCI is 3 (because pay and “start up culture” within Oracle) and Oracle as a whole is 4.

      Also, why is this a bad question? People on Blind make fun of other people for where they work so there has to be something up with reputation.

    Top in 2. I always consider Microsoft as goalkeeper of tier 1. If it is better than Microsoft, it is tier 1.

      That’s a remarkably good way to look at it. You could also argue the bottom of tier 1.

      @tingtang No. Pay is ridiculous.

      Yeah I don’t think it’s 1 because the pay isn’t as good and not all the products are great. And you can argue the tech stack isn’t as good either.

      Lol, what’s wrong with the tech stack?

      Ok yes the pay sucks and sure not all the products are great, but we also have an insane breadth of what we do and we can actually monetize it unlike Google. I have occasional problems with my Chromecast just like I do Windows. I think law of large numbers some of what we do will be shit and some of what we do will be awesome.

    Pay = 1
    Culture = 4
    Prestige = 1 among Hedge funds. Otherwise 2
    Brand value = 2

    Tying up your self worth to the company you work for shows a lot of insecurity on your end. When will people like you understand that prestige is a useless concept? Build yourself up, man.

      I disagree. It’s about building a brand. You now have way more opportunities coming your way and recruiters beating down your door because you have work experience at Amazon. Same cannot be said about some software engineer at Capitol One for example.

      Not a useless concept and not about insecurities. All about opening opportunities for your career path.

      It’s not an insult, just an observation and I had to think of an example. You work where you choose to work. Oracle ain’t that much better.

    WTF are you talking about? None of you peasants are any different than steel workers at dawn of industrial revolution. Prestige. Tier. Get back to your desk and crank out some totally run of the mill code. 😂😂😂

      Exactly, those were good jobs back then. No prestige working for "The man". The day I've beat the rat race with passive income is the day I'll claim my prestige.

    Rakuten is a 4. Well known, particularly in Japan, but an abusive sweatshop where employees are wrung dry before being replaced.
