    Robinhood doomed, Airbnb might be tasty IPO soon.

      airbnb definitely the one I'm leaning towards but why not robinhood?

      Their business model is questionable after everyone went 0 commission.

      Well the growth is stopped then and huge amount of customers definitely left for more mature places. Good for them though.

      Robinhood. They'll likely get picked up by one of these old school finance firms. Being bought it better than doing public.

      Seconded. OP should go to MSR. It's vastly different from the rest of Microsoft.

      Msr is one of the top research orgs worldwide and looks like its paying top!

  • MSR no brainer. That's like a tier above SWE in general. Other places you'll just be a code monkey doing meaningless work.

      Robin Hood is a shit show right now.

      Microsoft is obviously a great opportunity, but air bnb is about to IPO. Starting your career at a company growing that fast has tons of upside

    Microsoft Research. Because they have smart people who’re doing some really cool stuff. It’d be a really good opportunity to start there and learn from the best. Airbnb - you can crack the interview anytime since you’ve already cracked it once. I’ve also heard MSR doesn’t take normal SWEs. I’m guessing you have done some cool research during your academics to have gotten an offer there.

    What role in MSR? (SWE/RSDE/Data&Applied Sci/Research Scientist)
    Oct 23 3
    • Microsoft KAoO64
      OP
      mix of quant/swe
      Oct 23
    • Microsoft 44100k
      so RSDE? I don't think microsoft has quants? Anyways if not SWE, then MSR 100%

      What if it's SWE at MSR ?

      Worst name of the 3 with the hype and not sure about how long that hype will last. Def will have the least qualified coworkers of the 3.
      Oct 23
    • Credit Karma iopsifnr
      I’d probably go with MSR of those 3 choices, but if you prefer San Francisco then Airbnb is a very strong choice.

      I think MSFT is in a very sleepy side of Seattle/Bellevue so it will be boring to live near the office... San Francisco it’s a great place to live but be aware that you will smell trash and urine on your way to work every morning.

    Msft research obviously. Airbnb will not teach you as much as what research will and Robinhood is more or less one more boat in the sea of financial software builders and paypal is the king here and it’s hard business

      PayPal and rh in the same business?
      Oct 23
    • Microsoft panamap
      Nah rh == trading mostly , but they are planning to get into financing too , obviously 0 commission trading is a loss making venture . So obvious rh has to get into more lucrative markets and it’s a hard business because of the strong players - banks , visa MasterCard discover amex paypal square

    Current TC and YOE? Airbnb since are already in MSFT. If you are not a risk taker and want to play safe, go worg MSR, coz the rest is paper money.
