Whats the best FAANG to work for right now as SWE?

Seems like all 6 (Yes I’m including M) have their set of unique problems:

F: Privacy issues, lack of purpose (imagine being in the team in charge of Group Chats), overall disdain among millenials

APPL: boring hardware company, software mostly outsourced to TCS or like whatever bodyshop (Avanto or something)

AMZ: best perk is free bananas, overworked and stressed teams, frugality is an LP, PIP hires are (were?) a thing

N: less data because fewer and more senior people get in, not always hiring, no crazy SV perks that theyre known for, overall a normie company

G: the oG, but perks like free food often means more hours at the office, some toxic leftist culture, similar problems with F regarding data use or dependence on user data mongering

M: low TC, snooze job (but amazing WLB)

I think we can all agree the highest TC offer would win regardless of their respective negatives, but curious to see what everyone thinks, and what is your opinion on which is the best FAANG to work for right now.

Yeah feel free to include the ULTADs or Albertson or whatever.

TC: 160k

    Worked for 2 fang and a hedge fund. Google is by far the best place to be in terms of comp and wlb. You can snag more cash elsewhere but you will either lose out on wlb or will not be working with the brightest on earth. Can't have it all.

      I don't think that the whole Google population makes up the "brightest on earth". Sorry.

      Yeah Google feels pretty diversified in that you can find something you’re into if you look hard enough, but I personally feel the data use issues may affect G down the road, in terms of reputation and business model

      Yes I’m half Latino, half Black, with South Indian step parents who taught me Telugu, had an arm amputation when I served in the military in ‘08 and I transitioned last fall.

      (Bad) Jokes aside, what do you mean by that?

    Apple IS&S (Internet Services and Softwares) is quite a nice place for a SWE.
