What level should I expect at FAANG? I have a PhD in CS from a world top 10 university. I did a PhD after working 3 years in the industry, and since my PhD, another 3 years have passed. Currently I'm a staff engineer in the semiconductor industry (hence no FAANG). On seniority: 50% I'm acting tech & team lead, scrum master, regularly negotiating with stakeholders, across multiple teams etc., 50% actively developing. Options: generalist SWE at Google /Facebook (Meta) or embedded SWE at Meta.
Is a TC 160-170k for Amazon BIE L5 in NYC appropriate? I have 1yoe FAANG analyst and 3yoe non-faang mar/consulting roles.
Reg. why leaving, just a personal reason. No pip, no conflict with teams.

People who are long FAANG, do any of the government lawsuits coming worry you(antitrust/monopoly, content, etc) as a long term shareholder? I figure most of these tech companies may get a slap on the wrist but understand the risks. Heck, most of these senators are invested in these companies and are they really going to break up companies like Amazon & Facebook? Seems like they would establish an extremely dangerous precedent
I have 2 offers one from my Current company and one from Cisco my current company is giving 10 percent more than cisco Where should I go should I join cisco or stay in my current company( a small stablished startup )Considering my final goal as FAANG (similar) and I come from a Small College Cisco Amazon Uber Walmart
How much would my tech stack and language be a factor in getting selected in faang or good product based companies?

Been Interested in working at a FAANG for the past 5 years. I am a Certified Scrum Master, Agile Coach, and Product Owner. I never see many roles in those areas at most FAANG companies ?? Can someone help me out ? Is it a different title at those companies and are referrals needed ??
Everyone talks about FAANG and often times it seems like they mean “Google” or maybe fb/amazon. I never hear about Apple. What are consultant exits like there? Anyone know someone who made the jump?
Why isn’t Microsoft included in FAANG? I feel like it should be in over Netflix, but FAAMG just doesn’t sound as cool.
Do FAANG lowball offers nowadays? Got an Amazon offer with 130k TC. I am making 180k TC now. The recruiter told me I should consider FAANG brand and career potential. I think Amazon already doesn't have great WLB, and it doesn't sound like they truly value me.
Is there any resources that can help@with FAANG prep? Got dinked by Amazon and Google after the virtual onsite. Down on morale and thinking of reapplying in 6 months. Pivoting from SAP to program manager role in analytics.

Is it okay to get one letter of rec from a manager who left your firm? I have a great relationship with them and know they’ll write an amazing letter. Just not sure how adcom’s perceive if they are not currently managing me. FYI I will get the other letters of rec from current managers/bosses

Just venting out as its getting little tough surviving. I just fear being away from home will eat away my relationship and friends, and make my parents extra anxious (not as if they were not before tho)
I am so beyond ready to leave my current job, but can’t yet, since bonuses are paid out in January. 😬
In the meantime, I’ve applied to a lot of similar roles (slightly higher) but have not heard - good or bad - from any. Is it common for companies to slow down hiring in December because of Q4 rush, people on holiday, etc.?

I hear a lot of negative things about Guidehouse on here, but I received an offer that’s a 20% increase from BAH. I’m making mid 70’s at BAH in the health market with 4 yoe in DC area. I wanted to know about GH’s Oracle practice and how it is (which is what the offer is for). I was planning on leaving BAH anyways due to low pay/admin team issues.
I’m moving to SF at the end of summer. Is it common for single people in their early 30s to have roommates?
I could afford a $4k 1bd/1ba place and understand the HCOL, but that much for rent seems excessive to live close to work in downtown SF especially with student loans, etc.

Heading into final interviews at 4 companies…
1. What should I do for references? My company doesn’t know I’m interviewing, so who do I ask, when, and how? It’s not a question of who would give positive reviews, but rather who is appropriate to put in that position knowing they won’t want me to leave.
2. IF I get multiple offers, any tips on how to negotiate higher salary or more equity? I’m excited about each company so I don’t know how I’d rank my preferences if the offers are similar.
Hi all, I’m a product manager with a saas platform in Oslo. I want to understand what is the higher median of salary band for a Sr Product Manager in Norway. Somehow I found the official stats not very reliable.
I’m currently in general project management but want to transition into a product owner position. I am a certified web developer, SSGI Scrum Master and have previous sales experience. No degree. Any tips on how to transition? What certifications should I look at? What should be my next move? Etc..
Working as a Sr product analyst and project manager (functionally, not a PMP) for a digital health platform for two years. Also have experience as a BA for the same agency and a short stint with a blockchain healthcare start-up.
I seem to be having trouble even getting interviews for tech product roles. Are companies looking for people with more years experience? I also don't have hard CS skills other than SQL/R; is this an area should be focusing on?
I am a data scientist and I really want to transition into PM. I made the mistake of taking a job in tech as a DS after KPMG, and now have realized that actually my interest lies in PM work. How do I transition?
Real Talk: everyone complains about how many apps they send in and how many interviews don’t pan out in product. I just landed my 2nd product role in 2 years with pretty minimal interviewing. I wasn’t interviewing with or looking for a role at a FAANG or the latest greatest almost unicorn but I know what I want. I don’t think I’m great at interviewing but overall (even outside of product) I’ve gotten offers with not that much work tbh. What’s your experience here?
Currently a PM at MSFT, was wondering how common having an MBA is for PM @ FAANG/other companies
Our company went through an exercise of redefining product roles - from business analyst, product owner, product manager to assoc pm, pm, senior pm etc.
The concept is everyone with same skills - with different competency levels.
My question is - what about interest? I am energized by execution, not so much strategy. Is product management for me, or should I be looking at other career paths?
Note: I am not overly ambitious, but do want to have a good salary for my retirement savings😉
Quitting bay area analytics data science tech job to study for technical PM career change. Does this sound attainable? Crazy?

Interesting Google 1. So PMs at Google aren’t expected to be in daily standups, sprint planning, grooming sessions etc.?
Very cool! So where do you spend most of your time?
At places like Meta majority of requirements and solutioning are wholly owned by engineers
Interesting, if engineers own the solution, what do PMs own then? The roadmap only “what and when”?
