Does being company enthusiast work in negative or positive way during recruitment process. To put it other way would you rather take a person who is enthusiastic about company but slightly lesser fit for role or person who doesn't seem to care or know much about the brand but is better fit for role ?

I think genuine, 'You do cool work here and I want to be part of it' type stuff is fine. My wife was interviewing someone for a role last week who started quoting her CEO. Didn't get an offer.

I just mentioned they have developed cool products and wanted to be part of it , was worried I would be not considered as recruiter mentioned extra round just to decide between last two candidates for the position . I kind of wanted to be aloof but was worried it came out as arrogance .

Good question! Following..

Companies look for both. Also depends on the extent of fit - meaning - “slightly lesser fit” could mean different things to different people.

What’s the right level and comp range for biz ops role in FAANG with 3 years at MBB, 2 years in PE, and top undergrad (if that matters?). Got two offers from F/G but tech levels and comp are new to me. Surprised comp is lower than newly minted unicorn (Series C) Offers at F/G ~$140k base, 10% bonus, $60-70k equity vesting 4 years (what level does this convert to?) Offer at unicorn: $160k cash, $250k options 4 year vesting (based on current valuation less strike price... but still paper money)
