      I see you negatively commenting on Pinterest on all threads. You seem to have been rejected I suppose. May be try harder next time.

      May be. But it also doesn't change the fact that you can't get into it despite P being ๐Ÿ’ฉthat tells quite a bit about your technical background.

    Moved from Google to Pinterest. Google is massive, so it's hard to say anything definite because culture varies between orgs. But for me:
    1) P WLB is good. 30-35 hours per week plus oncall. No oncall bonus. At G my last team had worse WLB but at an earlier team people barely worked 15-20 hours per week so ymmv.
    2) P engineer quality is comparable or slightly better overall. G had more extremes - some Gods and some complete losers. P quality is more consistent. Harder to hide for low performers but not many rockstar geniuses at the top like G.
    Quality of eng infra and architecture was way better at G because of scale, time and numbers

    wlb is pretty good. Why would you expect a much smaller company to have similar eng quality as google?

      Engineering quality can be comparable, definitely canโ€™t expect level of infrastructure etc to be the same though. But scale requirements will also be smaller.
