    newsflash: there are no prestigious tech or finance companies. What we do us not prestigious in general. Get over it and go to med school if you crave prestige.

      Prestige is what outsiders perceive, same as the way you think med school graduates have more prestige.

      Yeah, I know. And outsiders do not perceive our profession to be at all prestigious regardless of where we work.

      Even a doctor from a shit tier school in the Caribbean with shit tier residency is still considered a doctor and seen as such, perhaps not by other doctors though. The lawyer you go to get your will and house paperwork done probably didn't go to Yale and never worked for BigLaw and they are still an attorney.

    FAANG is about the performance of those companies' stocks. It has nothing to do with prestige. I know lots of people who don't know Netflix but know Microsoft and have lots of admiration for the brand. Also many non-tech people I know think of working at Amazon as handling packets in the warehouse. Not much prestige to be doing that job I guess?

      Honestly, I have way more respect for Microsoft than Netflix. The engineering quality is crap at Netflix. That’s what happens when the interview process filters by culture fit rather than by technical talent. I love their TC though.

    Doesn’t matter. You won’t get respect working as a techie at a finance company no matter how “prestigious” it is. Blind is not the forum to judge finance companies anyway. Try posting on wall street oasis.

    A/B test it. Go go clubs. Change the company you 'work' for every month. See which ones get you laid the most.

      Ehh, I've heard worse ideas. Funny thing about nightclubs, is that people's interest in you rises the more you spend. E.g. if you buy bottle service and worry about the price, then you should not be buying it

    Banks don’t qualify for any tiers. Because banks have more managers and business people compared to developers..they will be fitted in untier category

    Prestige is from the perspective of outsiders. If a person is not familiar with the industry they won’t understand or care.
    The business at most financial firms probably considers the tech as support geeks and that they are the ones doing the real work.
    Being a techie for a financial firm has very little prestige. Prestige is always aligned to the skills relevant to the firm’s business.
    For an ambitious middle aged professional finance guy that would be a
    Strategist at Private Equity, M&A analysts, Greenlight or Tiger funds portfolio manager, Hedge Fund traders/ strategists, Quant at niche prop trading firms, big IB rollers etc.
    Its highly arbitrary...
    Once you grow up you realize everything is the same you just be the best in what you do.
