Facebook or Fox?

Nov 29, 2019 25 Comments

I got two offers

FB- 120 base
Fox Corporation- 135K base

both will have a TC thats still under negotiation. im coming from amazon with a very shitty base salary. I am concerned about Fox because even though its not Fox News, it still has a stigma. I am not a part of a political party.

Which one should I take?

      Oh got it. I thought you meant the offers are fake. I agree both have a bad stigma, I’m chasing money, but wasn’t sure if Fox has a worse stigma than Facebook or what’s better for my reputation long term

      If I had to compare the two, Fox is probably worse. We don’t see people like Sean Spicer getting hired at FB, but they are going to Fox.

    I’d take the FB gig. Put in 18 months and start interviewing at companies you actually want to work for. Your FAANG experience should open some doors.

    If you are in tech roles, FB is no brainer.

    The stigma against FB is about as bad. I would go with Fox just because it's almost 10% better, are there other parts to TC?

      It’s equity and bonus. FB will have equity, but I learned my lesson at amazon not to rely any salary based off of that. Fox won’t have equity, just bonuses.

      Hmmm, at the end if the day you have to make a choice between staying in FAANG and having a more consistent resume, or taking a 10% raise. IMO FAANG is overrated.
