Should I take Zillow offer

Microsoft gottamove
Jul 13, 2018 20 Comments

Currently at MS, sde 60, manager saying no for promotion because i had a few regressions(which I think should be okay under my policy of move fast-break things under a platform). Moreover, I am bored with work now.
Anyway I started interviewing. Was aiming for FANG. Appeared for zillow for practise, nailed it for sde2. Few teams want me there. Tc for next year is becoming 1.5 times, in comparison to MS current TC. I am falling for Z, as the culture is awesome.

No offense to zilllow guys, the company is awesome. The only thing I am worried about is going to a less brand company and that might hurt resume in future. Need opinions on that too.

Still interviewing for FANG, but at Z, wlb is awesome; won’t be the case at FANG

Current tc= 140 in Seattle.
Yoe= 2.8

    I'm annoyed with the obsession over FANG companies here. I have learned way more at Z than I ever did at MS

    Take it, Zillow won't hurt as far as brand. It's not like FANG is calling

    People on blind dramatically overestimate how much recruiters and hiring managers care about prestige of companies on your resume. Worry about what you'll be working on and learning and the rest will follow. I got same number of interviews before and after working at FANG.

      I think the name matters a bit for startups.

    Seriously? If Zillow is less branded, how can startup people survive this market?

    Are you going to work on more impactful problems there? Like 1st tier ops, scale, etc? Anything of value compared to current? If so go, less of a brand doesn’t matter if you gain actual experience.

    I know people at Zillow are happy. Interview for FANG but you would still be happy even if you fail all the others.
