Interview tips for Senior Financial analyst job at Amazon?

like

Currently working at an old biotech company as a senior financial analyst probably working 5-10 hours a week. Bored as hell but I realize my work life balance is insane. I have been trying to break into tech for so long I have an opportunity at a pre ipo start up that offered me $110k base plus 9000 in options at a 10-15 valuation. Should I leave my cushy old biotech company and go to the start up as their first analyst hire in finance and strategy? Or stay and keep applying to other tech comp?

I am interviewing for a senior financial analyst position and the recruiter says they’re getting ready to make me an offer. I am not very familiar with the company and there’s not a lot of info available about them. Should this be a red flag for me or is it common to jump into an unknown company?

Seems like the “Financial Analyst” role is just a new title for Accountant. I’m on my third interview for a Senior Financial Analyst position but the job description seems to be a mixture of both general accounting activities but also financial statement analysis. Is this a trap? Or is it truly a hybrid finance/accounting role?

Interview tomorrow and recruiter encouraged me to have notes out to keep track of my stories (5 interviews, 1 hour each). Should I acknowledge and ask each interviewer if it's ok for me to have notes out? I feel like it'd feel weird for me to very obviously glance at my screen after a question every once in a while without acknowledging what's going on or asking permission.

I’m turning down a higher role with higher pay (12% higher) solely because the HR team has been extremely unhelpful throughout the decision making process. From not getting responses for weeks, to consistently receiving “I don’t know, let me follow up” then not receiving follow ups, and everything in between. All of the interviews leading up to the offer was great, but then red flags started popping up making me feel very uneasy joining this company. Have you ever denied an offer because of HR??
