Fun question - what non-FAANG companies get posted about in this bowl way more than you’d expect based on their size, prestige, etc? My answers would be DoorDash (by far 1st) and Capital One. Not that they’re bad necessarily, but see so many Qs about them.

Agree with Apple1. In general, consumer facing companies will probably get more talk just because they’re so front and center (Doordash). Whereas companies like stripe, Visa don’t get talked about as much even though they are dominant. Doordash is definitely the standout on this forum but that’s because of their trash interview process.

Fair

It’s interesting, in tech there is tons of buzz around stripe, coinbase, databricks, figma. A few years ago it was Pins, Airbnb, Uber, lyft and before that it was dropbox etc. Imo, the likes of doordash have tons of bizops roles where people (imo) do meaningful work and can make a material impact relative to their YoE. Hence the attraction in this bowl.

One more point, facebook could’ve been the next Pins, airbnb whatever but they executed better than everyone else. Ofc I don’t have a crystal ball on which company does well. I am merely commenting on the fact that these things are not static as they are in say consulting, law or finance.

That being said a lot of work at google is the same (move protos), but there are tons of of interesting problems here.

I know they get a lot of flack for the take-home(as they should) but it’s also worth noting that almost every tech company makes you do a take-home. It’s exhausting.
