I have an interview for a senior solution architect with Amazon Web Services.
Is there anyone here who has worked at Amazon or other FAANG as a solution Architect shine some insight on how they prepped for the interview?
I'm making $135K in SF, working for Apple through an agency (so no equity or bonuses). 9 YoE. After checking blind and some other sites, I feel like I could be making a lot more...
Any tips? I've heard from some FAANG recruiters recently but don't know how much to ask for so I haven't responded. Don't know shit about money :(
My portfolio is mostly sites (campaign/e-comm/web apps) and now design system stuff if that helps.
Can someone please explain why everyone keeps saying FAANG, not FAAMG?
Microsoft has the largest market cap of any company (4x Netflix), and evidenced the ability to diversify revenue streams unlike Netflix
I have a product design screen with a Meta recruiter tomorrow —and im super nervous tbh. I never even considered applying for faang companies because I figured my background/experience w small companies/ startups wouldn’t cut it (yet). To my surprise, a Meta recruiter reached out to me last week to set up a call. Honestly, if I can just make it to the second round, I’ll consider it an accomplishment. Has anyone interviewed with Meta before? If so, what was the screen like?
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?
Given the Facebook (Meta) layoffs, how likely is it to have an offer rescinded? Starting in mid June which now seems far away but have an offer from another FAANG (higher TC too). Was going to decline but now I’m worried.
How is nobody talking about how Netflix snuck its way into the FAANG acronym?!? They should be REPLACED!!!

I was just talking to a younger friend who goes to Cal and It seems like the kids these days hate FAANG or at least Amazon and Facebook are not desired at all. I personally don’t see too many issues working at either Amazon or Facebook because I work at Deloitte where I’m sure we have many questionable clients and worked in financial services before. Curious on whether people are thinking about the ethics of their exit company when deciding to move?
Hey, I'm looking for an interview coach for Product Management at several FAANG companies.

Anyone have a specific coach or service that have helped them? Thanks in advance.

Am looking at exit opportunities and researching FAANG. Curious to understand why anyone would join Amazon which has the worst benefit of the FAANG? Can anyone share what’s better at Amazon that I am not aware of? Amazon and Facebook on sites lined up in January! So researching now!;)

Hey 🐠, looking for some advice - what’s the best way to approach a conversation with a more junior team member about being out of office frequently? Since they were hired back in May they’ve taken off 1-2 days per week for various reasons (plus 1.5 weeks for vacation)… I understand that things come up, people get sick, etc. but it’s impacting delivery / I never know when they will ping in the morning and say that they won’t be in so I have to have someone else, or me, pick up the slack…
