From LinkedIn data it seems 500 ex-Bloomberg engineers jump to Google(I guess most are Google NYC). While this number is dramatically smaller for other companies that ex-BBG engineers jump to.
Why? Google-NYC really like BBG engineers? Or it’s hard for Google-NYC to recruit, and BBG has the most nyc engineers?
I can tell you with certainty that my effective hourly rate at FB would be the same or lower, with a lot more stress. What's the point? Prestige isn't worth hating your life imo. I enjoy my work at Bloomberg, and am fortunate enough to work in a modern tech stack, as are many other engineers here.
