Atul’s Answer

You need to know the difference between Computer Science and Computer Engineering.

The latter also focuses on hardware and electrical engineering. This field is not easy but nothing comes easy in life and you have to work hard. I have seen many kids dropped out of Computer Engineering and got transferred to a degree where the knowledge of EE is not required.
Assuming you still want to pursue the Computer Engineering field, you will have lot more choices than a pure Computer Science major. For instance: Companies like Intel, Qualcomm, Nvidia, Broadcom, Amazon, Google, and many companies that make physical products or chips could use your degree beyond computer programming skills.

If you acquire a Computer Engineering degree and looking to do only software development - you can work for any company from Fortune 500 to startups in CA and WA where a significant number of startups are there. If this is your preferred path - stick with a Computer Science degree.

Hi Shane,

I hope you’re doing well & wish that you have a great week ahead.
Am sharing information that I found online for your question.

1. Google
Working at Google is a dream come true for many computer science graduates. A survey by the Business Insider indicated over 52% of participants indicated the desire to work at Google. Google is one of the highest-paying employers in the tech space, but that’s just one factor that makes them a great employer. The relaxed atmosphere at work, healthcare and wellness services, flexible working, and retirement savings all contribute to making Googlers feel welcome at work.

2. Microsoft
Microsoft polled second in the same survey by Business Insider, with just shy of 32% of respondents voting for working at Microsoft. The pressure to deliver in tech is high but so is the input from companies to ensure employees perform at their best. According to an employee there, 'Microsoft values its employees. The culture also shifted in recent years from super individual competitor to making others successful, and teamwork, which reduced the stress level at work to low.'

Here are some of the great things about working at Microsoft:
- Fosters a culture of teamwork and collaboration
- Great leadership from the CEO
- Feeling of accomplishment and job satisfaction
- Great pay, rewards, and benefits
- Diversity and variety in the work people do

3. Apple
Coming in at number 3 is Apple with just over 20% of respondent votes. Apple is an amazing place to work – it offers great salaries and perks, just like most of the tech companies. There’s no doubt working at Apple can be demanding, but the perks and benefits make it worthwhile – as long as you're working in the Western offices and not in the manufacturing side of things.

The perks include:

- Generous healthcare plan
- Onsite fitness and wellness center
- Private pension plan
- Work-life balance
- Discounts on Apple products

4. Facebook
There is a high level of job satisfaction at Facebook, with the majority of employees saying they enjoy the opportunity to be ‘authentic’ while at work. Fun workspaces, ease of access to the CEO and free meals are just a few of the things employees enjoy about working at Facebook.

Facebook also offers employees the opportunity to play to their strengths, doing more of what they are good at. Employees are allowed to work on different projects, even moving into different roles within the company. This freedom of expression (within limits, of course) makes employees feel valued. Salaries are great, and Facebook also enjoys one of the highest retention rates within the industry.

5. Amazon
Working at Amazon as a computer engineer is a challenging but rewarding role. Not unlike other tech companies, the pace of technological development at Amazon is fast. Landing a job there is obviously hard – you must be exceptionally talented. So why does Amazon make it onto this list?

Here are a few reasons:
- Health and wellness is at the top of the agenda, just like many tech companies – as long as you work in the office and not in the warehouse
- Offers employees stock options
- Financial security through great pension plans
- Other perks including supporting a work-life balance

Job applicants face high levels of competition in all the companies mentioned here. The work and dedication you need to put in just to get an interview shows the caliber of software engineer these companies look for. Once you are in, though, the opportunities and perks you can enjoy are worth the hard work.
