Once you are in FAANG, You will get this feeling again with thought " AM I a failed engineer if I don't become an entrepreneur like Elon Musk "

Be positive and keep the good work going on.
Always work on betterment without the feeling of failure.

Nope.You are living with wrong assumption.Be good in whatever u do and look at bigger picture and I will assure you that these FAANG BHAANG will appear very small.There are many way to build great and successful career and all you have to keep improving yourself.If you think that cracking these FAANG BHAANG is the definition of success for you then work on that with right mindset and in right direction.Why you are thinking it's super impossible for you to get there.Keep learning improving ur psychology and skills that's the way.

Yes. Doob k mr jao kahi

Lmao ... That's a depressing mindset to feel the need to ask these questions . .. life is more than that

No, but you are definitely ek no. C*utiya

Insecured c*utiya, think positively and lead life.
Look after your mental issues first, then you can think about beta!

I feel sorry for you if you have a mindset like this

Lol. Not al best engineers work for FAANG. You can't be the best if you stop trying to be one. Besides, you already failed with that kind of mindset.

Once you join a FAANG, your goal and dream company will change instantly. The moment I was offered to join Amazon, my target became Google Seattle office

WFH Vs WF Office Vs Hybrid, Which one should you take?
If you are fresher, go for a WF Office setup. You will learn things beyond your work. In the initial phase of of your career, one needs to focus more on learning than on comfort. The interactions at office, meeting with collegues, conversations at the cafeteria, sense of responsibilty, the need to walk up on time to reach office etc will shape you for better.

Once you have a work experience of few year then any setup is fine. Go for WFH.
