Stay at Nvidia or move to FB

Oct 9, 2019 42 Comments

Didn’t get enough responses for the last post so trying it one more time.

Currently IC5 in the self-driving cars team working on CV/AI algorithmic stuff, in the Santa Clara office. I have an E5 offer (195 base/600k rsus over 4 years/75 signon) from Facebook (AR/VR) in their Seattle office. The TC difference, including the cost of living difference that i was able to research, is about 35% (FB paying more).

What should I do?

      Seriously though, if OP doesn't take this offer. I'm going to take it. Bellevue and Kirkland are legit.

    Isn't NV self-driving a dumpster fire?
    Why is this a question?

    This is easily a 50% jump if you factor in tax and living costs....

    Dude it’s the Reality Labs. It’ll be some really cool shit, trust me. WLB may not be good though.

    So to be clear, the offices are at Redmond not in Seattle. Redmond is a great place to live and you can actually live somewhere to walk to work.
    I have been there for Open House and its a great place to work and I hope sometime I get the same opportunity than you.
