i mean yeah there is some truth in correlation between g and fb interview successes.wizzy wrote: ↑Thu Dec 10, 2020 7:32 pmIf you are already getting G interviews, then I would say the boost probably isn't there since it seems like you're good at LC. But if you're not getting interviews, then I think FB almost guarantees you an interview at G (and at FAANGMULAS/whatever the acronym is now).
i think for pretty much anyone in the tech industry who have worked for a long number of years, getting interview at G isn't the issue at all. almost anyone can get it from what i see. the randomness and the chaos of the process is an issue. e.g. say you've worked for 12 yrs on some technology related to developing simulator for some sort of hw platform. that code is going to likely be in c/c++ and after that length of experience you're p much a reliable engineer who can do most of the shit at g. but the interview process may have some random interviewer from a very different skillset who wouldn't care much for whatever this guy did and will have his own set of questions that he or she values. it also goes the other way, a lot of eccentric old timers at g who'd throw an unreasonable question on someone who is relatively younger or doesn't have experience with what the interviewer has.
g is very random in their interviewing, with the interviewer almost having no accountability in terms of what he writes in feedback. there is also no official 'debrief' at g. the interviewer would write or rate whatever he wishes and there would be no common discussion for him to defend or justify it. at fb, they at least have an official debrief where they're on the call together unlike g to discuss their feedback.
that said, it's only my opinion, and everyone has their own unique experiences and sure there would be people out there with a different take on it.
