      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.

    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).

    • 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.

      @Amazon people in here, you guys know we gave out new grad FT offers without phone/in person screens right? Just for passing an online assessment. Read the SP wiki... the bar is really low
      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.

      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

      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.

      As an Indian, I knew you'll not admit your problems but simply finger point.
      There is a need for India filter for many reasons
      1. Content is very wierd especially when it comes to relationships/marriages. Indians are very supetficial here and seem to care more about lineage and money
      2. Poorly phrased questions and comments
      3. Content not relevant to rest of the blind users
      And please, Indians are way more racist than Trump. You have no moral rights to whine about racism

      3. I am not representing India, I am representing 'me' and all of your comments show bias and anger towards a race, not this post or me.
      I am pretty sure you are a Indian, I don't know what messed you up.. family?, boyfriend?, whatever the reason the hate is evident.

      But considering the number of people who agreed with me, there has to be some truth to it 😊

      1. I meant Indians post very wierd questions about relationships and marriage. I like I discovered my wife likes to spend more blah blah. Noone else posts such dumb questions.
      3. I don't care for appeasing any race. And I've been bitterly critical of whites and blacks too. Most Indians don't notice it, and whine of bias every time I criticize India.
