Recently contacted by a FB recruiter and cleared interview without much prep. Offered position is E4 and comp is not much different. I wonder if it is a wise move.
Facebook clearly provides better prospective career growth, and commute is shorter. Lots of friends work there and they all suggest me make the move. But the wlb horror stories on Blind really scare me and it makes sense personal growth is built on such "grow or PIP" environment. Plus, I plan to have kids next year.
For LI, I like my life now. I also sometimes work 50-60hrs a week to complete sprint tasks. Seeing things shipped to prod makes me happy. But such workload makes me feel dying on weekends. I am not positive I can work these many hours every week for years if I go to FB.
Any suggestion, please? YOE: 4
When choosing teams in bootcamp, ask for pulse scores and be direct with WLB questions. WLB is nowhere near as bad as POS blind makes it sound.
