L4, 3.5 yoe. TC is comparable. Trying to understand the two from culture and growth perspective in Seattle. Is Uber better now than last year after all the negative publicity?

    This is no contest. Uber. Anyone who says Facebook because the value is real doesn't know anything. Uber has already filed for IPO and hands out offers based on a 60B valuation which is far lower than all IPO targets. On top of that, uber culture is more than fine despite what the media says.

    Get in before the IPO hits if you can. Instant house.

    If you care about negative publicity, you should not consider fb.

      Analytics is also very good. If you’re looking for WLB, you’ll find a team.

      4 years? In 4 years you’ll still be trying to “make da money” and the rest of us will be at a new company making real new hire grants work for us. But yes, let’s agree to meet back up in 4 years, you’ll need a shoulder to cry on.

    Facebook because it’s public already and the RSU value is real.

    FB, much more established, plus you know your RSU value. I've liked the Seattle office so far and I came from MS as well

    I am in the same boat and chose uber for the potential upside after IPO. I am also not a big fan of FB engineering culture.

    It also depends on what you want to work on. Not sure what Uber Seattle has, but FB Seattle has many options.
