Anyone know how it is working for FAANG company (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, google)? I heard Amazon is really tough, but was wondering how the other work life balance is for corporate roles

I’ve heard Amazon has more of a competitive/cutthroat culture. However, they are all gonna get their money’s worth out of you at the end of the day. For example, friend at Google told me it was nice to have the Google transportation bring him to work (but later on he realized it was a good tactic to have him work while he was commenting to/from the office).

Hire and Fire culture. Very high pay though.

One of my relatives works for Facebook. They told him he could move to anywhere in the 48 states in the mainland USA. So he moved from California to North Carolina. I wish the company I work for would allow that. He works in IT though

I have heard it there isn’t much WLB at Facebook. Not sure how true, also they have two performance reviews per year which might make it stressful I think

Compared to big 4 it will not be bad.

General impression is WLB isn’t great at these firms but at least you get better comp / benefits and boost to your resume. Good exit from public accounting assuming the role fits into your career plan.
