      OP
      White House is a catch-all phrase for US politics, just like Wall Street is for finance and Silicon Valley for tech. Bankers and traders don't literally all work on 123 Wall Street (some are in Chicago, London, or Tokyo), nor do all tech employees work in the valley (you have people from Seattle to India).

      White House really isn’t, Washington is a more encompassing term, but it’s whatever I get what you’re saying

      Is SWE at Two Sigma 2nd class citizen?

      No ts is just as eng dependent as it is modelling dependent. If anything swes are more 2nd class citizens at places like airbnb whr its product focused.

      Speaking as a modeler btw

    The Google worship in the community is unreal. Aside from banking and consulting it is much easier to work at Google than the others on this list.

    Also holy shit y’all value google that much? Senator is a lifetime achievement, so many work at google, also venture capitalist means you are wealthy.

      I think US senator is far higher in the grand scheme, but this is Blind... and VC career can mean junior analyst at Andressen Horowitz for instance

    Just to put it into perspective for how good developers have it:
    Software at Google is pretty much the only thing on that list where doing well in school doesn’t really matter.

      For new grads maybe? Who gives a fuck

      You literally almost can’t break into the other listed industries without the appropriate base career path. You can get into Google even without a degree.
