Why You Should Start Your Career At A Big Tech Company

  • There's no universal right answer to which company works best for you - At the end of the day, you should figure out what you care about and what your goals are and work backwards from there. It's entirely possible that Big Tech isn't a good fit for you.
  • However, in a vacuum, you should start your career at a Big Tech company if you can. The main reason is that Big Tech is generally quite good at adding a layer of consistency to your career.
  • You will probably learn a lot about writing good, scalable code as these companies know how to build massive systems and hire smart people.
  • Your compensation will be very competitive, making it easier to negotiate proper pay and level at future jobs.
  • You will probably develop a decent suite of fundamental soft skills as you need to learn how to work with many stakeholders to succeed at Big Tech.
