Leaving Facebook. How not to screw on the next job?
Leaving FB (relevant discussion
https://us.teamblind.com/s/2Xs6fiyV). TL;DR: fb is great, just want to work in finance.
So, I’m about to start a new role in a small engineering/ML driven hedge fund as SWE.
FB was my first serious job, so I know about how to be successful in FB’s context only, and have no idea how it works in much much smaller companies. While I’ll definitely ask the new management what to pay attention to, I’d like to know the community’s opinion on what to be aware of when transitioning to a smaller (finance oriented) company. I’m intentionally not asking specific questions, just want to see whatever is on top of your mind you’d like to share from your experience.
