Why lot of people on blind are propagating faang
I see lots of posts here where people are asking to leetcode and get in faang. I believe if you are young and specially in a country like india you must not join faang at all and instead do a startup.
Lemme tell a short story here. I once worked with 2 bright young guys in bangalore while i moved to inv banking and us they turned down offers in faang companies to do a startup. Last i heard they sold their startup and are millionaires. They turned down an offer to buy groupon as it is a dead company. Currently they are VCs investing in startups. My personal though is faang is good for h1bs.
Whats your take on it.
