FAANG or PE Ops. I currently am in PE Ops consulting but have an offer from Amazon. Any ideas on what would provide more job security? Trying to decide if I should make a jump to FAANG

Amazon would give you much more security in my opinion. Worked there in Ops roles prior to now and very rare that Ops team has layoffs or anything of that sort.

Still relatively safe. Remember that if a role is being phased out at amazon you can transition to almost anything internally if you are qualified. Moved from retail to operations personally.

Ugh, starting next week I’m going back to being unemployed for the first time in about 10-years. I’m not sure if I should go back into the Ad world or one of the FAANG companies.

Once you get into a FAANG company, is it better to stay where you are or move around? I’m a dissatisfied with my current job but I have vesting stocks, work 9-5, and people to know and respect me. I am the sole provider for my family and value quality of life and stability. I have some interview requests from other FAANG companies that I know pay more but I worry about starting over. Anyone switch companies and either regret it or are glad they did?

I know there has been similar discussion here recently, but how is WSGR PA Corporate's culture? I've been perusing forums and hear really conflicting accounts with some people saying that it's horrible, while others saying it's good. Also, there was talk on people leaving WSGR en masse to other firms (especially Cooly) and WSGR not being in the best place (although that was pre-covid and I guess things might have changed since then). Is it true that WSGR is/was declining?

Just want to thank the people in this bowl for giving me advice on several posts awhile back post-COVID layoffs.

It was definitely something he had not thought about but could see the clear reasoning behind it and was willing to go to HR to ask if it was possible.
