Those who went from traditional ElecE/CompEng companies like Intel, synopsys to FANG, transition worth it, how to do?
Currently at an traditional Intel/amd/synopsys like company doing EDA tools (Sw for chip design tools). Very different from web-tech stuff at FANG/big-n (esp Goog, fb, amzn, msft etc).
- How did you go about learning all different stuff asked in sysdesign interviews at big-n?
- was the transition worth it? (I.e. leaving behind all hardcore CompEng type studies, possible wlb involved in EDA)
At one of those old EDA companies, staff eng, 18 yoe.
