“The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads” ~ Facebook data founder. Is it wrong that we idolize FAANG? Should the govt intervene in business and privacy?
Which job would you take? 200k TC with 40 hours a week VS. 240k TC with 60 hours a week (FAANG-Amazon)?
Why is it really hard to get into the FAANG companies as a Technical Program Manager? Despite having proper coding skills? I have a feeling that these companies don’t prefer consulting exp at all.
I’m a cyber security professional been consulting since I graduated college. I’m in the final rounds for the following roles at FAANG companies. Role 1 - engineering program manager for compliance and security, role 2 - l6 consultant aws pro service , role 3 senior product manager. Do not know what to pick at this moment..leaning towards senior product manager…thoughts ?
Will FAANG companies wait for you to finish recruiting at competitor or revoke your offer if you need more time?
Looking to get into Facebook privacy legal team. Have experience as a consultant at another FAANG company. Anyone willing to provide a referral or discuss further?
Anyone witness slackers who got into companies you have no idea how? Had a coworker who does jack chit at work besides chatting on Facebook yet lands at a faang company? I guess if he brings the same work ethic he will be spit out for sure. Or maybe he just had no interest in doing project work.
So I have been able to get offers at consulting companies and some FAANG exit companies (Industry), have made to final rounds at FAAG (except for Netflix) but wasn't able to secure offers. My ultimate goal in my life is to secure a FAANG offer, I don't want anything else in my life. Is it that life is trying to play with me?
Need offer guidance: Amazon vs. Current (a known media agency but not FAANG level Brand) Career-wise and financially, AMZN looks better over the next few years. Life-wise, current company loves me (vice-versa) and is offering great plan for my life goal: International remote job (1 year, working 60% hours, earning 50-60% new base) - I can enjoy travel with less work but also keep sustaining. Qs: Is it too big a career hit to reject a Fang brand? I did 0 prep for this amzn interview.
Just started at Apple and I feel like there are so much to learn and some documents are definitely very elusive with the acronyms, I feel like it takes several hours for me to fully consume and understand a deck. Is this normal leaning curve for FAANG?
I've received 2 offers to FAANG companies this year as Sr Product Mgr, got along brilliantly with the teams, but ultimately neither were willing to help process my visa in this climate. I know folks have it more rough, but feeling pretty bummed out.
How difficult is it to prepare for a job at FAANG Companies? Will Cognizant name on resume impact anything? YOE: 17+
What are typical backgrounds for people who go into product management at FAANG companies?
Any insight on working as m&a counsel in-house? Hours as bad or not much better than firm? Is comp typically decent? For those in m&a legal counsel roles, have you found yourself doing a lot of the work in house or do you utilize quite a bit of outside counsel help? A few positions have opened up including at FAANG. Would love to hear insight in particular on the Amazon and Apple m&a legal teams.
Ah now it did.

Have you ever cried at work?
I usually join a meeting saying "hey guys".. I've always done this.. the other day someone in the call pointed out that not everyone in the meeting were male.. I was slightly taken aback . I use the term 'guys' in a completely gender neutral sense and thought that was the norm.. am I totally in the wrong here?
Hot chicks on your project team >>>>
I had a ridiculously busy year. I wrapped up my last engagement end of May and since then I have been on bench and my next project starts in a week. I have enjoyed the bench time; however even after a month (slow time, not fully shut down) I feel like I am not ready to start the new engagement. I am getting overwhelmed from the emails I am already receiving from the SM of the next project. I feel extremely tired and burnt out. Is this something normal?

When people who clearly don't understand what precheck is get into it with the precheck attendant........
Told my date about my job and she asked if I'm a masochist. Laughed it off at the time, but now I'm starting to wonder...
