Anyone worked at multiple FAANG companies? I’m trying to choose between 2 and can’t decide.
Did not get through to the offer stage at one of the FAANG companies. Trying to see how to better prepare myself considering I have been only getting rejects the last few months.
Do engineers who switch to management start at M1 at FAANG+ companies regardless of engineering experience, or is it based on total experience? Do they only hire either internally engineers switching or only hire external people if they have management experience? What suggestions do you have for people looking to make the switch? I'm not sure how much longer I want to keep coding.
Does Google hire or do any work in East Africa? I am thinking of moving to Kampala or Nairobi next year and the tech sectors there are booming. I figure FAANG companies must have some presence in the region. I would love to hear of anyone’s general experience working in tech as an expat or non-expat abroad!

If I have 21 RSUs vesting may 21 but another job offer (not from a FAANG but from a Series D SaaS), could I ask new company to “buy out” my RSUs? They want me to start May 1 so I can go on a company trip end of May. What are options people have tried? I don’t want to stay at Amazon until May 23 because will miss the trip with my new company and not have any time off in between jobs (I’m burnout). Amazon

I have an interview for a senior solution architect with Amazon Web Services. Is there anyone here who has worked at Amazon or other FAANG as a solution Architect shine some insight on how they prepped for the interview?
How does the vesting usually work at Faang companies with shares? Let’s say you get 250k in equity that vests over 4 yrs, are you entitled to 1/4 of that after a year?
Where can I learn about different career tracks or levels for FAANG companies to understand career progression? For example which level is equivalent to analyst or entry plus and what are the salary ranges?
Hi, I’ve completed 3 years as H1B and just received extension for the next 3 years. My employer will file prevailing wage with the DOL in the next 3 months in EB3. I have heard that some FAANG companies start filing GC within 3 months of joining. I’m already studying to switch jobs. How much time do I have to switch jobs so that there is adequate time left for GC application?
Not wanting to leave nyc, what are the best exit opps at FAANG companies? No tech experience - more interested in product or strategy. 4 YOE in strategy consulting.
I am torn between 2 “offers” - first is MBA (insead - no option to defer unfortunately) vs Amazon - Minimum TC 200k (SGD, incl, RSU) - non tech strategy role, first hire for my team in the region. I have 5.5 yrs exp. I see the later as more practical given I was aiming for FAANG post mba but also fear losing the network of the former.... Grateful for any views ☺️

Max you would spend on a condo/apartment with about $1.5M NW and 500-750K income? No kids so no fixed costs currently for childcare and school though could see those emerging in the next five years. Otherwise pretty low key lifestyle with maybe a few meals out a week. Interested in hearing both from a purchase price and rent perspective. Thanks!

Looking for a new opportunity once I come out of maternity leave but not sure how hiring managers will take it. I am super interested in the crypto space and previously had an offer for senior tech recruiter from Coinbase and then they lost the headcount. Now they are hiring again but won't consider me due to my maternity leave. I have interviews with Kraken and Binance this week and not sure how to approach the "when can you start" topic. I've been with Amazon for 3.5 years.

I have recently started taking courses on coursera to for an ibm cloud full stack developer certificate. Has anyone here received this certificate or know of someone who has? I want to know if this certificate will get me in an entry level developer position somewhere or do I really need a degree to get a career as a developer?
