FB vs Uber vs G

Jul 10, 2019 72 Comments

I have offers from FB, Uber, and G
FB e5
200/30/610 (TC 382) + 80 sign on

Uber 5a
200/30/720 (TC 410) + 60 sign on

Google L5
Waiting for numbers but wouldn't be able to compete with the others I think. (Low 300 TC) (updated)

Career growth and compensation are important to me but so is WLB.
What would you pick?

    Uber of course. WLB and TC are both the best.

      I spoke to members in my hiring team and some people literally left because of the bad culture back then and are back now in the company, because the culture has significantly improved.

      Just based on compensation or based on company and culture?

      Uber is offering you their top comp for 5a. While FB is not offering you their top for 5. Google 4 will be a demotion. Anyway, Uber work stress is less than Facebook with more low hanging fruit. Go there.

    Which team at Uber? Which team at Google? This is important.

      I know that teams might be completely different but I can't mention the teams. I'm more interested in knowing about the culture of engineering there

    Uber, a ton of open problems on many teams. I pitch projects to my manager and get the resources (PMs, Data Scientist, etc) to get them done. Culture has changed a lot. That’s a great offer, which team? Uber ride hailing, eats, ATG or one of the others? SF, Seattle or NY?

    WLB is 930-530 for me and nothing on nights or weekend. However most of my team is 11-6/630

      Thanks for the info rideit. It's in SF. Can't share the team though. Yes, I also got a very positive vibe about Uber.
