Am looking at exit opportunities and researching FAANG. Curious to understand why anyone would join Amazon which has the worst benefit of the FAANG? Can anyone share what’s better at Amazon that I am not aware of? Amazon and Facebook on sites lined up in January! So researching now!;)

Amazon also takes people with pure business backgrounds in PMs roles. Almost impossible at any other FAANGMULA.

Amazon has by far the worst culture of the FAANG but at the end of the day it’s a elite brand name that will do wonders on your resume and possibly even your career

Also - highly location dependent. There are Amazon warehouses/delivery stations/offices in a lot more states than Apple offices. We employ so many people, it’s easier to get in. Plus, Apple is more selective, hiring mostly technical roles. We have a LOT of HR/people roles, operations positions, etc. It takes a LOT of people to keep this powered.

Is it true that Amazon has an up or out performance culture for their Product Manager and Program Manager roles?

Up to a certain level, yes. There’s a platform that if you get to it, you can stay there and there isn’t an expectation of “out”.

I have friends and coworkers that left Google and FB for amazon - for the $$. If you come from a top FAANG into Amazon, they pay up, big time.

For context my on-site is for a Program Manager role in one of their business functions, not SWE role. The TC I was communicated by the recruiter is nowhere near $200k for L6. I feel it’s too low and not worth it. What do ppl think?

You will not get $200k for an L6 role.
