Featured Review

Current Employee - Administrative Business Partner IV

I have been working at Google full-time for more than a year

Pros

Excellent company culture and growth mindset.

Cons

Salary isn’t high enough and theres an expectation that you must support 2-3 executives. With attrition, you’re suddenly assigned new executives without your consultation.

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

I have been working at Meta full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

1. Impact at scale 2. Exposure to latest ML techniques 3. Place to be innovative albeit with privacy in mind

Cons

Not much to say except low work-life balance and high stress which is expected
