Leaving for a faang. 100% comp increase and better WLB. What else is there to say?

*Deloitte bans you from flying on the company dime rn

I’m resigning from Deloitte next week, going to amazon. 92% bump in pay. What I’ve been told/sold is better better wlb, FAANG name, tech company on resume, better pay, easy to move around and try whatever I want, remote roll if I want, promotions after manager aren’t impossible, get to work on the #1cloud solution out there...

Amazon usually does backloaded vesting. Insane signing bonus fist two years. Equity last two. I had an offer for around 220 3ish hearts ago and that’s would’ve been 280ish now

like

Amazon pro: rsu. Also, as far as culture, WLB and comp goes, FAANG aren’t as homogenous as MBB or B4.

In my opinion work life balance will be similar between the two but the pay will be higher at Amazon although you have to stay for a few years (their stock vesting is structured to combat early attrition and it makes up a big piece of the TC). If you can get hired at Deloitte and Amazon it may be worthwhile to interview with other FAANG and tech companies. You can find some with better balance/culture and career path, with similar money and brand value.

like

Depends... if you are early career I would probably give an edge to Deloitte because you can learn more and the difference in money shouldn't be too significant. If you are experienced then Amazon might be better since you'll make more and likely have stronger exit options in the future to other tech companies or Fortune 500s. If you want work-life balance then I'd potentially reconsider both options, since both are basically "all-in, or out".

Both have elements that can be extremely toxic. Will depend a lot on group, role, level and comp

Anyone have insight into how taxing works on RSUs. Someone at NVIDA mentioned that their RSUs also get taxed by the company and hance you never actually see the sum total of RSUs awarded to you.

Trying to figure what TC includes at FAANG companies. When they say 150k base, 30k bonus and 100k RSUS... is your TC 280k? Or is the RSU over a 4 yr period? So, only base + bonus + quarter the RSU is the yearly TC??

Is FAANG recruiting really all that hyper-competitive at M7s? Friend said no-one was picked up at Netflix from Wharton last year🥺

Does anyone know if all FAANG companies do background checks for previous employers?

like

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
