      To be fair, all things being equal noone would join Yahoo if they had an offer from Google. In other words, if you are at Yahoo, you probably didn't make it to Google
      So why do we pretend that prestige doesn't exist.

      Do you people plan to work at the same company for the rest of your life? If not, why do you take comments against your company so personally ?

    This list is cracked out. Not even shilling for Apple here or whatever (don’t @ me) but Pinterest, Slack = AWS? Adobe on the same level as YELP? Tesla in tier 4?? No nvidia? Get the fuck out of here.

    Also Facebook is a garbage company, with a garbage product and shit tier prestige. Fight me.

    Square, Lyft, Dropbox? LOL. What is this a wish list of higher TCs? If that’s the case then Twitter can beat your number 1 and SAP shouldn’t even be on this list. Prestige wise I will rate Microsoft and Amazon at number 1 - going by 15 years in tech, I can tell big companies and higher technical bar matters. The tech bar at FAANG is well established so no question I will hire person from the same bucket (FAANG).

    • Amazon blipeee
      Uber leadership would disagree with your sentiment of Amazon. Secondly, we have over 600k+ employees so there are bound to be edge cases; we mitigate that by constantly pruning our workforce. So occasional subpar candidate may get in but I can guarantee you they won’t last. Hence over a certain horizon quality of talent at Amazon always grows higher and more competitive.

    • Tintri cknW65
      Well it's also based on growth opportunities too. I have few folks at Microsoft Seattle just doing the same kind of work and plus it seems their hiring bar went a little low recently. On the other hand, Amazon's Ads and Aws hiring bar is rising and folks seems to solve complex challenging problems out there with good total TC.

      @Amazon people in here, you guys know we gave out new grad FT offers without phone/in person screens right? Just for passing an online assessment. Read the SP wiki... the bar is really low
      Apr 17, 2019
    • Lol. I got an offer from both Amazon and an Amazon subsidiary. Not only were the interviews the easiest, but the offers were the lowest.

      I don’t have any hatred for Amazon, but just because you guys have solid products and operate at a large scale does not mean that the perks, pay, and interview difficulty aren’t consistently reported to be (relatively) low compared to other top tech companies.

      The point is, if Amazon is clamoring for people and is the easiest to get hired into out of a list of 10 companies, then it’s the least prestigious out of that list.

      Does that mean it isn’t prestigious AT ALL and doesn’t beat MOST companies? No. Does that mean they don’t do good work? No. Does that mean it’s not prestigious relative to other top companies? Yes.

    Lyft is running on AWS because they weren't smart enough to do the data center work themselves. Why would they rank higher than Amazon?

      void 0 - a *lot* of teams at Airbnb are completely Chinese, to the extent that I used to see stand ups exclusively in Mandarin.

      I haven’t seen that at LinkedIn yet.

      Except that working here sucks and our technical problems are really boring. I’d say tier 3. Only saving grace is pay.

      Amazon is the worst role I have ever done in my life. Managers are just glorified document factories constantly bickering and fighting over headcount. I miss tech.
      And before you tell me to leave Amazon if I don't like it - yeah already working on it.

      The companies leading in charge of AI are MS & Google, the only two companies with Quantum research.

      Also “war machine”?? What??? That research has been going on for a while through Raytheon, DOD through academia etc. By the time industry gets involved in any govt plans, the project has already been long researched on the academic side, NSF hello!!

      Also what??? You realize top level researchers are at every major industry research department. Good lord, you’re obviously not a PhD with a statement like that.
