What are good tech companies to join in NYC, both from culture and TC perspective?

Of course Facebook and Google, maybe Spotify. What else would you recommend?

      Do you have a basis for that judgement?

      Yes.
      Bloomberg TC tapers down to 275-300 levels, very few people cross it.
      Bloomberg has no growth pattern. Most are SSEs , there is no growth path beyond that.
      And last but not the least, it’s still Fintech. You are still a “Developer” - far from “Business”

      Agree Bloomberg not in same league. Source, a senior person from Bloomberg who told me their model is to have lots of B and C players and then sprinkle a couple A players in key spots

      How's the work culture? Late nights ? Staying back late after 6? Tech?

      Interesting! They actually reached out.
      How is culture there? What about total comp?

      I've heard comp is good but won't beat Facebook

      Very chill culture in tech. People leave at 4:30 or 5 or 6. Really depends on the day and how busy it is. Tech is modern, k8s, micro services, react, etc. familiar GitHub process. Total comp will be way lower than fang, no food, no bonuses, no refreshers, almost no other perks. Lots of cool stuff to work on however and generally good people around.

    The shiny aquariums create a feel-good. But it’s not that good . Not saying it’s bad, but just not that good

      I agree that Bloomberg comp is lower than Facebook/Google. It’s true you don’t have a title beyond SSE, but I don’t think it’s an issue. Don’t agree about developer-business distinction. The profit center for Bloomberg is software. They understand it. I haven’t seen anything to indicate otherwise.

      The distinction is still there, it’s much subtler and better than the banks which absolutely suck. But it’s still there.
      In any case some teams are good for sure. Good for you if you are in one of them

    Jet.com TC is better than Bloomberg and way better than Spotify, in some cases even better than Amazon. Not as generous as G or F though. And WLB is superb. ( my days are typically 10:30 to 6)

    Blomberg . good money. Don't know about culture. Extreme openness can be a pain. I didn't like that anyone can look up when I am logged in or away from the terminal.

    Bloomberg is good, but it depends on the team.
