I got an offer for an L5 role at Amazon Web Services and for a senior role from a non-FAANG company. I'm excited to get into management at AWS but have heard a lot of negative things. Not sure what's the best choice.

Hey man - you’ve worked at Microsoft already. You don’t need the brand name. I personally don’t see the point of doing management in AWS - consultants and not the strategy kind...their job is just to push the product not create it or strategize its growth, etc. It will be pushing paper. You’ll get the value from the AWS brand if you are doing some technical stuff. I’d suggest going the route where the day to day job’s subject matter will make you happy. Don’t chase brands at this point.
