    I would rather work for Google. I feel as though it will be around longer than Facebook

    "Nevertheless, which technology company would you rather work for: Google or Facebook? "


    I live and work in the high-tech industry in Seattle - have a lot of MS friends and have seen first hand what happens to techies in a company that becomes so large, they lose their individuality and at times purpose. You get assigned projects and are expected to work like an absolute dog. I mean putting in insane types of hours. Some of my MS friends have disappeared for months at a time while working on their respective project, literally living out of their offices. Plus when things come crashing down, you're a disposable. They'll kick you out the front door in a heartbeat if they decide to change directions or eliminate your work-group regardless of your skills or experience. Everyone is replaceable. It might be fun for 2-3 years, or to get some experience. But to look at those uber high-tech companies as a long-time employment're in for a rude awakening.

    I agree with you somewhat... Like the article says Google probably (and will) higher from within which in any business is the best way to higher... (aka less training and more probability that the person will stick around) company's lose billions each year training someone that ends up quitting in less than a year anyway... but yes I do agree that big company's can make you work like a dog but then it is your choice to work there. I'm from Fargo, ND and Microsoft gives 100% full paid benefits and no one else gets that around here... So while there is downsides there is also a lot of upsides like room to move up and great benefits.
