In terms of total compensation, FAANG-sized (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google) companies are among the best in the world. If you want job security and the highest possible salary, there's nowhere better than a Big-N tech company. <br /><br />
However, thousands of people leave FAANG companies for startups every year, for a variety of reasons. Often, they leave because they want: <br /><br />
- A role where they can have a bigger impact on the company.
- A chance to work with a new, cutting edge technology.
- To be an early employee (and equity owner) at the next tech giant. <br /><br />
To get a better understanding of why people leave FAANG companies—and what they're looking for in their next roles—we collaborated with [Blind](https://www.teamblind.com/signup?utm_source=partnership&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=angelist&utm_content=top15faang), a trusted online community where 2.8M+ verified professionals anonymously share advice, provide honest feedback, and discover relevant career information. <br /><br />
After comparing Blind data with AngelList's startup data, we noticed an interesting trend around people who leave FAANG companies for startups: They tend to join the same companies. <br /><br />
In fact, we've found that there is a small subset of startups, spanning all stages of fundraising and sectors of technology, that consistently recruit talent away from the top tech companies. <br /><br />
Below, we've listed the top 15 startups people are leaving FAANG companies for—all of which you can apply to on AngelList today. <br /><br />
To curate this list, we analyzed [Blind's data](https://www.teamblind.com/signup?utm_source=partnership&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=angelist&utm_content=top15faang) on which companies FAANG employees most frequently search for, AngelList's data on which startups hire the most former FAANG employees, and more AngelList data on which startups are growing the fastest.Read more →
Perks on their own aren't a good reason to join a company—but they're still nice. Having ample time off, for example, can make life significantly less stressful.
Vetting a company's perks, however, can be tricky. Oftentimes, these things aren't listed on job postings. To help with this, we built AngelList's new company profiles to include information about companies' perks and culture.
For example, here are 22 startups in San Francisco that offer generous vacation time, all of which you can apply to via AngelList today.Read more →
