How Amazon & Microsoft & Google companies are giving solution architect roles to people who are having less than 3 years of industry experience? Is it really they are so much talented or am I missing something? 🤔

There’s a lack of available talent in the market, and if you hire junior and train them up your odds of retaining them increase because they feel valued. That being said it also creates issues in the market bc if those people want to leave in 5 years, they may need to settle for a lower salary since FAANG companies pay insanely high. Platinum handcuffs.

I can attest that Google & Meta pay at or above market rate, and Amazon is insanely cheap with salaries. Of course, they call it resourcefulness. The real advantage the FAANG companies have in comp packages is their benefits. Usually great health insurance coverage at low prices, a 401k w/ match, and stock.

They just want bodies to fill open requirements at their price point.

Anyone who has felt this way, how did you get through such situations and lack of motivation?
