    obviously the LinkedIn offer, unless you're drunk on kool-aid in the Blind echo chamber

      FAAG is life man. Also, did Netflix ban Blind or something? I don’t think I’ve seen anyone from there on here.

    If you are a tech guy, then please not Cloud Security.

      Why?

      You work for enterprise customers, and there is no choice of technology you get to work on, if there is a customer need, you work on the stuff you are allotted to, no complaining. This is same for every service based division of any firm be it Microsoft, Amazon or Google.

      Plus promotions are based on YOE and rarely on performance. Plus if you working for Google, you work mostly on tech specific to Google Cloud, if at Microsoft, then only Azure specific. This is the way, this division work everywhere.

      If you want a career in security the GCP role is better. If you want to Lean more towards data analytics and AI, then LinkedIn is better. All up to which opportunity contributes more to your long term goal

      @MSnm42 breakdown?

    Google. You can always move internally.

    Linkedin is all right. Their hiring bar isn't as high as Google tho.

      Inflated hiring bar is overrated.
      Oct 5
    • Microsoft / Consultant micrusade1
      @aw3some Nope, if you are working in consulting/services part of any firm like Google in this case (Cloud Security), then nope. You are as equal as an external candidate for engineering managers, also too many employees from this division try to flock to engineering teams.

      Plus, you learn and work on too many useless technologies, which you won't be working on as an SWE/SRE in any firm (specially if OP shifts outside Google in this case)

    Welcome to LinkedIn! This is the highest Senior offer I have seen, you must have made a good impression. LTS is a huge moneymaker.
