I’m 25. It seems like over a dozen people I graduated with are now Product Managers at FAANG companies. Yet every time I look at PM job postings at big tech companies, they almost always require 7+ years of experience, 5 at the least. How are so many people getting PM positions 2-3 years out of school? … as someone who has (unsuccessfully) been trying to break into a FAANG company, it’s quite frustrating to see.
How much do you think the government could accomplish if they had the in house development power that FAANG companies do?
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

Can we get a list of companies than are not FAANG/MAANG but are close to or as good in terms of comp and experience? I get that Meta beats the market in terms of comp, but honestly most people I know wouldn't work there these days. Amazon doesn't have rep problems but seems to have lost it's 2010's luster. Netflix is finally facing legit competition after years of domination. Google and Apple are great but are huge now. What's the next generation of FAANG?

Has anyone learnt at scaler and gotten into FAANG? What is the DSA curriculum that they offer.
I have one firm called Algouniversity... They are teaching DSA for 4 months on weekends. But placements are not that great
I have this question always in mind.Big product based companies are asking DS problems. But I am not sure when/where they are implementing those problems(tree,graphs) in real time projects. Anyway the developer will be working in API, service logics,UI or POC kind of things right. I heard ,most of them are saying its for filteration for an interview and I have seen many answers in quora. But somehow I am not clear.
Can one from big product company folks clear in detail.Thanks in advance
