      Uber beat my Google comp by 35% not even counting stock refreshes

      I'd probably agree with the main comment's rationale here (besides Uber) with the caveat that stability isn't necessarily a good thing. If you're really good at what you do, then you can progress a lot faster at FB and get to work on more interesting stuff. If you want to cruise, Google is a better bet.

      Recently got an offer for Uber and it was in line with FB/Goog as others have said. Can't help on stability and prestige is just wank anyway...

      You can also replace stability with boring. It always comes down to what team you’re on. My personal opinion is fb is more prestigious than google. Google is too big. And Microsoft is not in the league with the other three

    Don't pick Microsoft. Any of the other three are a great step up.

    • Microsoft MacroHard©
      Uber, google, and Facebook are where A players go. Microsoft is where college grads go to jump to the other three after getting some experience, or else you stay because you're not an A player.

      It's worth noting, companies *love* hiring from MS, so doing a few yrs here can be a great CV item. It's just not good to make a career here.

    I would go for Uber. I have been to multiple FAANG companies. Uber has good exciting, impactful product that helps 3 million earn a living and is disruptive to society — in the real world, not just in digital. More opportunities for impact, more learning, more problems to solve, and more opportunities to transform society.

      What TC multiplier should I look to get over fb/g to account for the increased risk I would be taking?
      Mar 25, 2018
    • Uber / Eng bag
      Equal offer would be okay to me; but if you are conservative you would want 20-30% higher from Uber for illiquidity and risk. But since Uber is planning IPO within 2 years, illiquidity is probably not a big deal.

    I've been to all of them except Facebook and I'd say Google is the best for the resume but you'll actually learn and do the most at Uber

    Depends on what you value more. IMHO if you value stability then Google > Facebook > Microsoft > Uber, but if you value learning and growth then Uber > Facebook> Google > Microsoft.

    Uber is not what it used to be. They are increasingly fighting the battle for the US market. It is not just about Lyft, but the threat of self-driving fleets.

    Several years ago TK said that self-driving was an existential threat to Uber. He was right. However, they are looking to be on the wrong side of that existential threat.

      I wish them luck. They helped reinvent an industry and some great people work there. But, they are not in a great place with self-driving which is the future.

      Dara has a great reputation for integrity and partnerships. Maybe he can forge a deal with Waymo.

    Consider Amazon. Or at least AWS. Out of these listed, I guess Facebook but each has much to offer.

      All my friends who work at AWS say the pay and vesting sucks. Any company that brags about frugality in pay is a problem.
      Mar 20, 2018
    • Amazon / Design M67gq98
      The vesting is a drag. I’m not a fan, but I’m on a good team doing fantastic work so for me it works. My situation is different in that my early career wasn’t with prestigious tech companies, so getting to AWS is sort of a baseline for me. If you’re already elite, it’s not necessarily the best choice.

    Google or FB realistically. I think I’d get a more interesting team at FB but if I could get a Google team then Google.

    The problem is I can’t leetcode :/

      Lots of behavioral. AWS allegedly has harder tech interviews but more behavioral than other companies. It’s especially easy for SDE1 now.
