What are people's thoughts on Samsara and future potential ?
Would you be willing to take a bet on them and join as engineer leaving FANG in hope of their equity value drastically going up in coming years ? Another upside also being greater learnings and growth over there compared to FANG.
For context, they are offering the same base pay as FANG. It's the immediate equity returns you miss out on leaving FANG.

      I think that one of the other big strengths is transparency with employees. Every quarter the board slides are presented to most of the company, and the CEO is really open with both the plan and the reasoning behind the plan. I find it super interesting to see the thought process behind the direction and targets etc, and it's always clear that a lot of thought is put into it.

      Late to this post but I literally switched teams in the first 3-4 months of working here, and manager was extremely helpful with the move and enthusiastic with helping me achieve my career goals. Maybe just a bad apple.

    What people SV tech bros don’t understand about Samsara is that powering it is an extremely fine tuned sales machine. Something many tech companies take 10 yrs to perfect.

    On the eng side, we have like half of MIT.

      @aklineman above the line about eng being from MIT there is a section on sales that you might have missed but it is very important :)

      Every company believes their stock will go up, that doesn't justify giving low equity offers, especially when you're already at 6billion valuation

      I wouldn’t compare equity given by a 300-500B company to that given by a six

    • Deliveroo ghdyr65
      Are you saying you'd happy accept less equity in a $6billion company than one of a 300-500b company, or you'd ask for more?
