Indeed as a company

Sep 1, 2019 90 Comments

Not here to promote indeed, we have our problems but want to let the public know more about this company.

Pay: Pretty decent but just not FNG decent.
Two Data points I have for SWE at 2YOE
150k Austin
260k SF

Food(Austin not sure about other office):
1. Buffet style breakfast and lunch. It is really really good.
2. Barista, coffee smoothies whole day
3. Good pastry whole day
4. Deli, sandwiches throughout the day
5. Snacks, fruits, ice cream, drinks always stacked full

WLB:
1. Real Unlimited PTO, at least AFAIK
2. Office is almost empty at 5
3. Not a lot of pressure if you get things done
4. A lot more product than just job search

Bad part:
1. Promotions seems hard
2. Company is going through reorg hence the previous hiring freeze which is being lifted
3. Company is promoting brand more now, so people use to think Indeed as a no name company
4. Not big in Seattle or Bay Area

Note: I am in the engineering department

    Indeed is NOT a top tier engg company. It's on par with Starbucks engg at best. Have you seen the UI? Looks like a 4th grader learnt HTML and was hired to create the homepage.

      Speaking of UI - did you see the horrible LinkedIn UI? Indeed’s is much better!

      Are you kidding me? The ui is amazing. I love the simplicity of it and clutter free front page. It just works. What else do you need? Ruin in with nasty js frameworks and kill the pageload time ? To solve what?

    So why would I work at Indeed instead of any Tier 1 or Tier 2 tech company?

      My experience is that Indeed treats employees as pretty disposable 🤷‍♂️

      Been with salesforce before jumping to Indeed. Salesforce was so political and it seemed they didn’t care about their employees. Maybe things have changed there?

      One thing where indeed looses out is on stock. I know that they have an internal stock granting scheme, but it still doesn’t count. People at other fang tend to rest and vest - so in my opinion, no indeed unless they go ipo

      OP
      Indeee will never go IPO because we are already acquired by a rich Japanese company. Yeah, the not having RSU part kinda of hurts for Indeed.

    What's TC for senior sde in Austin? They posted some base numbers on their website and it was not too impressive, like 130-170

      Ah that's pretty decent in Austin

      OP
      Yeah but I heard amazon pays Seattle TC in Austin. So Amazon way better than Indeed at Austin.

      3 years is a long time... what's comp ignoring ltip?
      Sep 3, 2019
    • Indeed kelxk
      OP
      Usually new industry hires gets sign on and annual bonus to bridge the gap before LTIP vests. So the data point I gave is before LTIPs vest because LTIPs maybe zero like RSU might be trash. The TC will be a lot higher if I divide the LTIPs by four and average it into the TC.

      Not sure if I am at the liberty going into the details but it’s the same as most other companies. We are an engineer-focused company.

      You could easily find tech used at indeed by searching

    Is Austin your main tech hub? Do you hire remote engineers?
    Sep 2, 2019 1
    • Indeed kelxk
      OP
      Not sure. Heard we are experimenting on that but don’t quote me on this.

      Austin, Tokyo, Seattle, SF. These four are the main tech hubs ordered by magnitude.

    260k at 2yoe is better pay than FANG. At least better than mine at 2 yoe

      OP
      FB can outbid Indeed by way more, this is no brainer. Not trying to say Indeed is at FB level, just saying Indeed can be generous if they want you but on average they are way below FB in terms of brand and TC.
