高盛 VS Facebook?对刚毕业留学生更友好的职场领域是哪个?

在美求职是多少留学生一定要闯过的关卡。我在我的求职路上,拥有两段求职成功的经历。第一段是毕业后在高盛做的risk quantitative analyst,第二段则是在工作一段时间之后因为某些原因跳到了facebook做DS(数据分析)。

高盛,金融类的佼佼者、大公司,Facebook也是互联网行业里的巨无霸。

两段求职经历可谓是完全不同的行业不同的领域,我将从不同的角度和维度用自己的亲身经历展示给留学生们,金融巨头VS互联网巨头,到底不同在哪里?应届留学生,小白模式又该如何选择最佳?

高盛-工作内容 VS FB-工作内容

虽然说公司和行业是完全不相干的两个领域,但我在GS和FB都做的和data analytics相关的职位。

在高盛是risk部门做quant,主要对公司的各种金融产品的liquidity risk进行modeling,和前辈讨论并且调试model。还有就是每天/周根据model的结果出分析报告,并和业务部门沟通分析结果。

在FB是运用数据分析来为engineer提供insight,驱动产品的变更(比如size impact,做实验分析等等),还有当team metrics发生变动时进行root cause analysis,总结来说就是帮助team从数据上找到direction,为decision making提供建议。

以上我是两份工作的具体内容,这两份工作其实刨去软技能、资源、涉及领域等等,追根揭底的核心技能其实是非常相似的。

因为day to day work都是要进行数据分析,所以technical方面都是经典要求SQL, Python/R, Tableau,还有需要扎实的数学和统计知识。

高盛-公司新人文化 VS FB-公司新人文化

两份工作,高盛和FB相比回想来看,我会觉得对于应届生来说, FB的要求其实更高。

举例来说GS(只针对中后台)看待new analyst就像一张白纸(我们组里有很多完全没学过金融的new analyst),入职以后会参加数不完的training,无论是公司职业level的还是组里工作的,我入职后的感受就像是进入了另一个“学校”,印象很深的是就连记meeting note都有培训。

入职后至少前6个月的工作都是老板安排,老板会给你非常多guidance,你在ddl之前做完交给他然后他也会review你的工作,相当于手把手带你。

FB就会更加独立,虽然也有很多training,但绝对不是从零开始培养。

FB更强调ownership,通常老板在你ramp up的时候只会给你讲组里的主要工作,希望你负责的workstream,然后你的close worker都是谁,帮你搭建好关系,剩下的所有都需要自己完成!

这里包括从哪里开始学习现有结果,哪里开始入手自己的分析,怎么和close worker一起完成工作全部都是你自己决定。

你做的工作老板并不会给你很多guidance,也不会在你deliver结果前帮你review你的工作。

当你不会或者不能确定你的分析是否准确时,需要你自己想办法验证,或者自己寻找best person寻求帮助。
