Where do all the best engineers and scientists go to work these days?
Serious replies only please. I'm not necessarily talking about prestige, but moreso where you'll find
1) the highest total compensation,
2) the most research and technology-driven culture,
3) the greatest opportunity for impact and career growth.
I have a feeling it's Netflix in 2019, but interested in hearing opinions from Blind. I'd rather hear substantive comments rather than "lol my company good ur company bad", but I'll see what I can get.
You can also throw in outliers like RenTech, DE Shaw, etc. but those will obviously not be applicable to most people responding here.
