- Facebook fxau82I'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.Mar 20, 2018 2
- Don't pick Microsoft. Any of the other three are a great step up.
- 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.
- 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
- Snapchat QVnr72Depends 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.
- Consider Amazon. Or at least AWS. Out of these listed, I guess Facebook but each has much to offer.
- 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.
