      To be fair, all things being equal noone would join Yahoo if they had an offer from Google. In other words, if you are at Yahoo, you probably didn't make it to Google
      So why do we pretend that prestige doesn't exist.

      First of all these rankings are shit, they are literally based on the toughness of the interview these companies have and nothing else. Secondly ppl who really believe in such a list are idiots as they think tough interviews = great company.Now, too your statement, what's the point?. So Google has the toughest interview to crack and even pays more at lower levels but launches shitty products, hasn't launched anything in years and is just running on organic growth. Whats the point of having so tough interviews if you can't do shit as a company. I really feel sorry for ppl who join Google and just stay their coz of pride but learn or launch nothing worthwhile. Then isn't it better to join any other company which actually helps you grow?

    Square, Lyft, Dropbox? LOL. What is this a wish list of higher TCs? If that’s the case then Twitter can beat your number 1 and SAP shouldn’t even be on this list. Prestige wise I will rate Microsoft and Amazon at number 1 - going by 15 years in tech, I can tell big companies and higher technical bar matters. The tech bar at FAANG is well established so no question I will hire person from the same bucket (FAANG).

      @🍪cutter — the bar at Amazon is very low. It was by far the lowest out of the dozen or so places I interviewed in the fall. This is consistent with the general opinion on Blind as well.

      Please don’t try to pat yourself on the back by grouping yourself in with the rest of “FAANG”. Amazon will always pay lower than other large tech companies so hotshots with options have to really love Amazon in particular to purposefully take lower TC. I’m willing to bet that is the exception, not the rule.

      My “hunch” is that you got rejected by Amazon and you got burnt. No one will have such a hatred against one company unless you have been pissed away. AWS is indeed an undisputed leader in Cloud infra and offerings - I don’t have to pat on my back to prove this. This is for a reason and not because AWS hires “incompetent” engineers which are below the bar of Uber. Nothing against Uber but your statement is utter BS - I can bet this on my experience as dev/ hiring manager in Google for 8 years of my career. AWS is as a matter of fact better when it comes to deploying technologies and converting risky bets into industry defining success stories.
      Apr 17
    • Amazon blipeee
      Uber leadership would disagree with your sentiment of Amazon. Secondly, we have over 600k+ employees so there are bound to be edge cases; we mitigate that by constantly pruning our workforce. So occasional subpar candidate may get in but I can guarantee you they won’t last. Hence over a certain horizon quality of talent at Amazon always grows higher and more competitive.
      Apr 17
    • Tintri cknW65
      Well it's also based on growth opportunities too. I have few folks at Microsoft Seattle just doing the same kind of work and plus it seems their hiring bar went a little low recently. On the other hand, Amazon's Ads and Aws hiring bar is rising and folks seems to solve complex challenging problems out there with good total TC.

      Apr 17
    • Uber hunchgum
      Lol. I got an offer from both Amazon and an Amazon subsidiary. Not only were the interviews the easiest, but the offers were the lowest.

      I don’t have any hatred for Amazon, but just because you guys have solid products and operate at a large scale does not mean that the perks, pay, and interview difficulty aren’t consistently reported to be (relatively) low compared to other top tech companies.

      The point is, if Amazon is clamoring for people and is the easiest to get hired into out of a list of 10 companies, then it’s the least prestigious out of that list.

      Does that mean it isn’t prestigious AT ALL and doesn’t beat MOST companies? No. Does that mean they don’t do good work? No. Does that mean it’s not prestigious relative to other top companies? Yes.

      There's a reason I said probably.
      On average, more Southwest employees would want to work at Google than the other way around.
      And this is just my guess that more Google employees would be able to clear Southwest interviews than the converse.

      As a result, people, especially recruiters, look on you more favorably if you work at Google than Southwest.

      Google and Amazon recruiters must not have gotten the memo then...I should tell my coworkers too. They keep reaching out to us 😂

      yea our interviews are definitely easier than Google's, but at the same time, it's actually really hard to get in at Southwest just due to the sheer popularity of our brand and culture. There's a reason we're consistently ranked in the Top 10 of any best places to work list alongside Google. I cannot unfortunately say that about Microsoft.

      What you can or cannot say about Microsoft is completely irrelevant to this thread.
      Are you seriously suggesting that a SWE at Southwest would be viewed as favorably as a swe at Google by the tech industry?
      I can assure you, you'd get many many more messages because of the industry reputation of Google engineers, and the Google hiring bar.
      If you want to work at Southwest you're free to do so, but unless you are new to blind your know that for most people in the tech industry hold a much higher regard for those who work so FANG

      Apple Pay sucks. From my experience, Initial grant is nowhere close to even Amazon. Refreshers nowhere next to Facebook (dunno about Amazon since I have not worked there) and almost no chance of promo to level 5. But contrary to popular belief, WLB is awesome

      Doesn’t matter. The refreshers more than make up for it. There’s no crappy TCT concept that will keep your 4 years TC constant.

      Also, if you have competing offers, Google does roll out strong offers.

      I think Google realised they don’t have to pay insane dollars to lure people to join them and hence this trend.

    I love all the hate. And people ask why we think people are jealous or why we think we’re above others. It’s because some people here react so negatively when someone says something nice about us. Haters gonna hate.

    This isn’t surprising in regards to Glassdoor. In general, our internal culture is strong and people love working here. We offer the best in industry when it comes to comp, benefits and perks. We hire the best. And despite the haters b+tching about some media spin, people internally know what we actually do, how we work and the truth. If that makes you mad, send me your tears and anger.

    I myself have been here for quite some time and know our developer platforms well. The media spin, particularly by NYTimes, is amazingly biased. And I’m one who loved and respected NYT before.

      There is a need for India filter for many reasons

      2. Poorly phrased questions and comments

      The players are exactly who I hated when I talked with your company. The people I talked with there were just so mind numbing and clearly didn’t care about *anything* that mattered. They also just weren’t that smart. It was frankly surprising. Like what the hell? I thought Facebook was supposed to have good engineering talent?

      We “suck” because we don’t have to pay as much blood money so our comp packages tend to be lower. (Our refreshes are what actually helps us retain the people we think are good, we just don’t have to offer people seven figure packages to get them in the door like y’all do.) People come to my workplace because they want to do something here and they give a damn. If you’re a mercenary or think this shit is a “game” and say things like “Don’t hate the player” in response to criticism you mostly work elsewhere and I am so, so glad I don’t have to deal with y’all in my workplace.

      Facebook is *only* highly regarded because of comp. Y’all write a fucking website and couldn’t build a real product to save your lives. (You’ll see when you launch the nonsense that you’re working on and it falls flat. Buying other companies won’t save you.)

    Why is Bloomberg so low? It's definitely a notch above where it is and is the only finance related company on here. Sure citadel, TwoSigma are higher but they are a tiny fraction of the size. Also, BBG is the only one that is genuine strides as far in terms of helping the community and it's something deep in the company values.

    Snacks, insurance, catered/comped meals if working late (in NYC), NJ offices have onsite food for 2-3 meals. Good pay, though not highest but it's all cash. Strong performers in the right organization can be rewarded but it's almost always better to jump although this is not unique to BBG. Chill work environment. Hiring bar and quality of people is all over the place but there are plenty of smart people.

    Did I mention the $5-$10k company charity match, you can contribute by donating dollars or time. Tons of perks at many museums and such (e.g. nearly free admission)

    Also, the only technology company HQed in NYC proper.

      Some of those features are highly correlated. Prestige is directly propoetional to TC.

      Prestige is not really related to TC. TC is mostly related to cash flow; so highly prestigious companies with low cash flow pay poorly, and boring as shit companies with huge cash flow can pay very well.

      Can you explain to my why the iOS app has taken such a massive performance hit over the last 1-2 years? It freezes constantly, crashes all the time, is very laggy, it takes 4 seconds to load a chat every time I select one, and 7 seconds to load match cards on launch. This is why I imagine it wouldn’t be a great place to work at least for iOS. Sounds like it’s all rapid feature development and no addressing tech debt.

      @void I can't explain and definitely can't say that you're not onto something. If the latter is the case, maybe what we need are strong leaders that are willing to step in and address this if people aren't talking about it. I'm trying to get more of my colleagues on here that can weigh in.

    Twilio should be much higher.

    Also, Infra companies are not well-represented in this list. Eg. AWS should be on there.

      AWS is a subsidiary of Amazon.com, but it's pretty true they're not really looked at as the same. Generally speaking, people see AWS experience as higher "prestige" than amazon.com.

      Hahaha, twilio will be done in a year or two. 4-5x the cost for SSO! Yeah and AWS has pinpoint which does there same shit. Yep, you are losing customers to greed.
