Datadog vs Doordash vs Microsoft
By - deathgene
I swear if you put Radix Trading up there Microsoft would still win the poll
Yeah, bc no one knows what that is. If you put JS, HRT, or FR in the poll, they'd beat Msft handily though.
Why shouldn’t it be?
same pay as DD and higher than datadog for new grad
way better WLB than both
better benefits than both
same or better brand name than both
better stock than the other two imo
only con is the slower pace and Microsoft tech stack
I think you are seriously overestimating Microsoft NG pay, in Seattle it’s like 140-160ish average and slightly higher in the bay. There are some higher offers but people aren’t getting those unless they are negotiating with another offer.
It’s 200k TC for new grad
looks like datadog new grad is like ~160k average per year while msft goes up to 180-190k, sometimes even 200k+ if security clearance or skipping the lowest level (according to levels.fyi and blind)
* Msft has tiny stock refreshers whereas DDash has normal refreshers AFAIK.
* Msft benefits (free drinks, subsidized food) are worse than DDash, but I'd guess they're better than DDog.
* Azure has average/poor WLB AFAIK.
* Msft stock is better than DDash. Idk about DDog.
* I'm not sure Msft's reputation is better than DDash.
DataDog since I heard new grad is 190k with good culture
190k starting salary?
Who in the right mind would choose Microsoft over DD and datadog?
People on this sub are truly FAANGSexual
DD future maybe not so bright.
I’d argue you can’t make a bad choice 🤷🏻♂️no matter what any of these companies will look sweet on your resume, plus you’re only interning. If you received all these offers and work hard during your internship, I bet you’ll have no problem getting an awesome job after graduation
