Gave interview at Microsoft back in June for a SWE role. Cleared all 4 rounds and got verbal confirmation,documentation mail etc but after that they just vanished. Recruiter never picked up calls and no response from them.

Has anybody had a similar experience like mine even at FAANG level companies?

Sed lyfe :(

I'm tired of being told to prepare for easy to medium level leetcode problems and getting straight up DIFFICULT ones in interviews. I guess I just have to expect difficult from now on no matter what...these aren't even FAANG companies.


Guys, my Amazon BI Engineer Phone Interview is on Tuesday. Anyone has given BI Engineer Interview at Amazon or Any FAANG Companies? Would like to discuss. Please help. Amazon Amazon India


I know that Google often lowballs nowadays unless you can show a competing offer, preferably from another FAANG. I am in the middle of interviews at Google and a recruiter from Facebook reached out. Trying to decide if I should try and get an offer from them for leverage. Does anyone know whether Facebook will send over the offer in email form before I verbally accept? I know some companies refuse to put anything in writing unless you verbally accept.

Have been a L5 PgM at Amazon for one-year and thinking about opportunities to boomerang back at a higher level later on.

Anyone gone back to consulting, or is it better to go to another FAANG before boomerang? I don’t think going to industry at this point makes sense.

Concern on going to another FAANG is getting de-leveled/starting over. L5 is nebulous middle management, and it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle.


Are there any in house entertainment roles that are particularly good? Netflix is obviously FAANG but I’ve heard the culture is cutthroat. On the other end of the spectrum, heard the traditional TV networks pay terribly. Any other options? What about in house music roles? Is that a thing?

People working in Amazon AWS (especially sales development or lead development rep):
- how’s the culture like in AWS?
- is it a stressful environment?
- what is the pay range from this role?
- how does career path looks like?

I’ve heard mixed reviews from people around me and want to hear from the community how you all feel? Is it worth pursuing a role in FAANG or just go for unicorns and get career growth from there? (I just had my first round of interview with AWS today)


Netflix taking this hit isn't good for a few reasons, one being when we lose that N then things get odd with FAANG

Hi FB fam, are FAANG companies still hiring? especially google?


My company went toxic in the last couple months. Chose me and started interviewing. Had a very successful interview with Amazon but recruiter is working hard trying to place me and said there’s no knowing how long to find a team. Meanwhile I just received a Director offer for a company with a 29% pay bump July 1. If Amazon or any other FAANG/large co gets back to me, is there an acceptable way to not burn bridges with new job and accept or delay start date with FAANG? Or fuck it just hop?


Why isn’t Microsoft included in FAANG? I feel like it should be in over Netflix, but FAAMG just doesn’t sound as cool.


Is it nonsensical for me to dream about joining FAANG only because I want aunties back home gossiping that Sharma ji’s daughter works for Facebook (or AANG)


Hearing a lot about people moving out of the Bay Area. Are FAANG companies open to their employees moving out of SF now and working from anywhere (even once covid wfh ends)?

Any current or past Verily employees here that can speak to culture?

Trying to get some salary data. I’m a 2016 grad doing global litigation in house in a major metro area (NYC/DC/SF). My salary is $182K. My company says that I’m being paid above market and that doesn’t seem accurate. Could others share their details so I can either (1) push back more on salary; or (2) adjust my expectations.


Any insight into jr-level associate legal counsel compensation at a public tech co in Austin?

It’s worth a shot 😊

Looking for salary negotiation insight. Google L6, ACC position, 4 years experience. No offer yet (thanks hiring freeze!) but I was told to expect 182-196 base, 10-13% bonus, and RSUs, with total comp in mid-200s for years 1 and 2. Based on other threads and my research, this seems low. Thoughts? Tips for negotiation strategies? Any insight appreciated.


I'm looking to switch from criminal prosecution to in house. I have a 13 year background in healthcare and white collar fraud investigations. I'm looking to limit litigation (I've tried enough cases) and hopefully increase pay switching from government.

I am getting summarily rejected from a lot of postings and I'm wondering if it's even possible to switch over. Anyone make the jump or have advice on doing work to make the transition?

I'm a first yr attorney at an insurance firm and am in the process of interviewing for an in-house position at a tech company. The position is pretty much generalist, but I get the impression I'd be working mostly on SaaS and partnership transactions. I definitely think I would like the transactional work better, but I am concerned about the long-term earning potential vs. partnership. How common is it to eventually make $350k+ in-house/how difficult is it to transition back to a firm? Thanks!
