For FAANG and the like, it's pretty obvious they look purely at LC skills. I'm curious to know how this translates to actual work quality, and how many of these developers (percentage wise) are generally bad coders/get put on a PIP.
The top tech companies are not looking for coders only, but are looking for problem solvers who can code. I'm not sure if there's a more efficient way to mass interview folks without requiring a lot of interviewers time.
I've seen a lot of people get put on PIPs. But not all of them are due to incompetence, but to other reasons like the inability to work well with others.
