Anyone else go to a really competitive high school / college? I get constant Facebook / LinkedIn updates from folks that went to my alma mater and everyone is doing super well (now doctors, lawyers, FAANG engineers) , and makes me wonder where I went wrong.

I know we're all on our own path, but do any of you deal - con’t
Is it too late to buy the FAANG stocks? Still feel that Amazon and Google are undervalued.
Starting application process to FAANG and other tech firms. For those who have recruited, what’s the end-to-end timeframe?

Anybody work at Amazon? Are their offers negotiable? My husband got an offer for a senior position in the VA office paying $120k plus $20k bonus plus 13 shares of stock that vest over 4 years.

He likes the offer but not sure if he should negotiate for more because it’s expected?
