I recently got offers from PayPal and Cloudera for New Grad position. Looking for advise on which one to accept and any room to negotiate with either (both these offers are non-negotiated).

PayPal Offer:
Base: 125k
Joining Bonus: 15k
Relocation: 8k
Stocks: 30k/3 years
Bonus: 10%

Cloudera Offer:
Base: 130k
Joining Bonus: 20k
Relocation: 5k
Stocks: 105k/4 years
Bonus: 10%

PayPal is more like Data Scientist/Engineer role and I was an intern at PayPal, while Cloudera is Software Engineering role. Both roles are in Bay Area in HQ.

      I agree but Cloudera has been under target since there merger. People say its less stable and lot of good engineering folks have left. I wanted to know if Cloudera is back stable since its stock took a beating. I know PayPal is great when it comes to overall company growth and stability! Plus PayPal is a better known name to recruiters so how Cloudera looks on resume matters as well early on in career!

      @amqblind I am more inclined towards Software Engineering as I like problem solving more than sitting and waiting for ML models to train, ML is mostly obsolette now with so many packages being developed!

    I would say go for Cloudera. Cloudera engineers are valued a lot in distributed systems and in fact overall software engineering. You ll be working with lot of cool people unlike PayPal where most of people are hired from contractors not even having good computer science background and they come from TCS , infosys etc. so I would +1 for Cloudera anytime.

    Some teams at Cloudera are good and others are outright toxic. Which team are you joining ?

      San Jose. This was a New Grad offer as I was a intern. All my co-interns at my level got similar stocks.

    • That’s pretty interesting work given the data available to you in that department. Get to work across the portfolio of products and attack ever-changing fraud schemes.

    Go for cloudera. You can learn so much on cloudera like big data technology company as you are new grad. After some years of experience, when your foundation become very strong, you can join PayPal like product company and stay longer there.

    Join coursera and come back to paypal after a year or two, you will be valued much more.

      It's not Coursera, it's Cloudera. Were you referring to Cloudera only 😅?
