Best FAANG company for improving skills?

Feb 13 17 Comments

I understand that many like the work-life balance of say Google or Facebook more than say Amazon or Tesla. And also the onsite benefits tend to have people gravitate more towards companies with them.

I'm specifically, utterly focused on growth in skills and general acumen, work output, and business understanding. Given that is the only criteria, e.g. throw work-life balance, benefits, free food, niceness of mangers etc. out the window, what would be the best FAANG or FAANG-like company to work with, in your opinion?

  • Not Google, because all the technologies you learn are specific to Google

    • That's probably equally true at the other faangs, with the difference being that at them, both the tool knowledge and the domain knowledge are transferrable.

    • Same as Amazon. Not transferable

    Perhaps a start-up where you can wear multiple hats and have bigger impact?

      Out of college maybe , once you have 10+ years no ? Will you wear a front end html coding hat when you are an ML data scientist ? Companies like Uber forced this and if you are unhappy or you show dissatisfaction you will be killed

      The tools don't matter that much. Processes and culture are far more important.
    • Fair point but may depends on team. My team aint good

    I really don't think as of this point that people are switching their technologies once they have started working in it. I don't think that people move from stack to stack.. it's allot harder specially if you bring in there build tools, testing tools, and then the actual scope of the tech stack... It can be over whelming. Perhaps if someone can shed some light as to how much knowledge have they acquire in a particular tech or in multiple of them.
