Depends on the unicorn. More upside but more risk. If you believe in their upside....go for it.

Also, besides comp, the FAANG brand is likely more enduring on your resume. Someone said prestige is similar โ€” maybe right now. But if the Unicorn stumbles, not really. For example, I remember when Groupon was the hot new unicorn. Not so much now!

Unicorn: similar level of prestige / brand recognition / pay with more exciting growth opportunities and oftentimes still has the startup feel.

first time im hearing the term unicorn used outside of fairy tales. in the context of faang and startups, could someone explain what a unicorn is?

Itโ€™s basically a non-public tech โ€œstartupโ€ valued at or above $1b

Definitely unicorn. Upside with IPO makes it super attractive. Also many are as prestigious and as difficult to get in.

SC1. Unicorn is typically a late stage startup with over $1B in valuation. They often IPO within a few years and thereโ€™s significant stock upside. Airbnb and DoorDash fit this bill last year. Right now some top ones are bytedance, stripe, databricks, etc.

Is there a way to identify duplicate URLs within labeled hyperlinks on multiple columns/rows/cells?

I was thinking conditional format, but itโ€™s identifying duplicate labels. I have over 80,000 cells, so extracting URLs manually isnโ€™t going to work for me.

Thanks in Advance!
