Many did (I haven’t obviously). But I joined Amazon to move to google .lol




Is it really better at Google? TC in non tech roles (think non tech PM at Amazon) is worse, pace is apparently slow. Not a fan of Amazon WLB but still unclear why Google is any better.


Well, you have a much lower probability of getting Pip’d at google. What’s the point of TC with a sword hanging on your head (please don’t come at me with “if you are star performer blah blah”…Amazon has a high level of regency bias )

Also , google’s 401 K match happens on day 1. Google has better vesting schedule. And better benefits over all

I am looking for a job in ITIL. I have 5.5 YoE . I have in dept knowledge on Problem, Change , and Service Level Management. I have worked as Cross functional Lead as well. I am SIAM professional certified also.


I'm trying to suss out if a new member of our dept hates me or my team (she manages a different team).

My initial take is she's just hard to read and probably a tightly controlled introvert. My direct report felt she's 'cold as ice,' 'bristling' at our suggestions, and forming a clique that wants to do their own thing with no input from our team. He's triggered very easily, and there was no explicit evidence, just a 'vibe' so I wrote it off. (See 1st comment)

I interviewed for a job a month ago. A few weeks after the interview, I was told my feedback was good, but the company was evaluating all positions at the company at this time. Today, I saw the job is no longer posted, but my application is still "active" in the workday system. Anyone have any idea what this would mean? I don't want to continuously bother the recruiter.

I wanted to get people's opinions on leetcode, codewars etc when prepping for interviews. I am a junior full stack dev looking to move to a better paying junior role or a mid role and honestly these style of questions have always stumped me. I have found that in a year of work to have never found them useful in tackling real world issues. Now I'm moving from a junior to a mid can I still expect leetcode style questions?

I work mainly with react, TS, node, graphql, mongoose and mongoDB.
