Anyone worked at multiple FAANG companies? I’m trying to choose between 2 and can’t decide.

no but can I have the one you don’t take


At a different FAANG company but seems hands down google is the answer. Mostly because you don’t have to say you work at Meta


You might get more relevant answers if you share which 2 companies you’re deciding between.

SC1 hesitation is comp and also the type of work. G1 thanks for the feedback

Pros for Google:
- Better culture
- Better WLB (generally)
- Better comp for 3-7 YOE (evens out around CC/SCC level)
- Monthly stock vesting (compared to quarterly at Meta)

Pros for Meta:
- Quicker promos
- Lots of management roles (and ability to manage earlier in career)
- Stock refreshers for year 1 (no Noogler y1 refresher at Google)
- Higher ratings multipliers for top performers (this year was 1.25x, 2x, 3x for Meta, and 2023 will be 1.25x, 1.65x, 2.5x compared to 1.2x, 1.4x, 1.6 at Google)

One other pro for Google: Google has a wide and varied range of different businesses, so there are many opportunities for internal transfer if you want to try something different down the road

Are the rest of the FAANG (Amazon, Apple, Netflix) just seen as a step below in terms of both TC and WLB? That seems to be the consensus view in these discussion forums but curious if there are other thoughts to the contrary.

If so, seems like it should then be FG as a first tier and then NAA as a second tier.

My impression is that Apple is on the lower end comp wise but the higher end WLB-wise.

For Netflix, Google and read their publicly available culture presentation. The reputation I’ve heard from inside the industry is that senior people go there to bust hump and make extra bank for a few final years before retiring. Great pay, terrible environment for most people.
