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

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

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.

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

Partner called today to “flag” that I left the office yesterday at 5:40 after he gave me an assignment, and that he would expect me to be there until 8:00pm. I responded that I was told when I was hired that I would have the flexibility to make my own hours, and that seems to be contrary to that policy. If the policy is changing, then I requested my compensation be adjusted to reflect more time working, as the flexibility was part of why I agreed to join the firm. Too ballsy?

I have exposure to JavaScript/Typescript in test automation. Thinking now to shift from QA to React.JS development. Capable to creating small apps using React.JS.

What i have seen in my experience is development guys are getting paid well than QA. if i think of future QA ultimately boils down to handling people as you get promoted, rather than remaining close to technology.
