    • Easier to “get shit done” when you have elite connections.

      Not necessarily. Those connections are generally only good for getting you in front of the right people, I.e. getting an interview. They will not get you hired and they definitely will not make you a better problem solver

    • You’re thinking like an employee not an entrepreneur. If you want to raise capital and hire excellent management at your startup your school will help you significantly.

      I’m not going to be a code jockey my whole life 😂

      That's why so many school drop out became succesfull entrepreneurs.

      Yes, School matters for first job. Beyond that it's your ability to connect with people you meet every day more than leaning on busy remote alumni group.

    FAAG - they are very big and there are both good and bad teams. For career growth, you have to find right team.

    Amazon’s not bad, but it depends if you are put into a good team/manager. Same goes for other FAANG. Most of them have many subsidiaries, and each different in its own right. In the end, it’s the team and manager you are in that determines your experience and possibly growth.

    Yeah FB if you can deal with the WLB and stress.

      ...and entitlement. I interviewed there being attracted to TC but holy cow, everyone I met with was the worst of the millennial generation. I've met some rock stars from the age group and I'm sure the existing elsewhere at FB but these were not them. I nope'd out learning an important lesson about jumping ship for a little more TC.

      +1 on Apple>FB stock long term. FB is in long term decline. Avoid.

    Out to a start up or another FANG, most likely. But after four years at Amazon you’ll have plenty of options.

    Facebook will promote fastest, give big RSU, and bigger initial package.
