If I have 21 RSUs vesting may 21 but another job offer (not from a FAANG but from a Series D SaaS), could I ask new company to “buy out” my RSUs? They want me to start May 1 so I can go on a company trip end of May. What are options people have tried? I don’t want to stay at Amazon until May 23 because will miss the trip with my new company and not have any time off in between jobs (I’m burnout). Amazon

TC: 390k (base: 220k, bonus: 20%, equity: $500k over 4 years)
Career YOE: 16, FAANG YOE: 2
What can I improve?
What should I ask for and what could I get? I also have a Google onsite in a few days. Would a Google offer be any better? Thanks in advance!
Current TC: 190k
What are some of the highest paying non-FAANG companies for L4 Product Managers? Looking for recent insight outside of LevelsFYI
I’m jealous of my husband’s work situation. He is in a non tech role at FAANG and makes the same as me ~$200k but works about 20-40 hours a week and then spends the rest of the time napping, & watching tv. He gets his work done quickly, attends meetings and has really great relationships to where people think he’s a superstar. To be fair, when things hit crunch time, he’s working hard and late hours, but it’s definitely a more balanced life. Are all faang companies work/life balance like this?
Currently interviewing with Facebook (Meta) and looking for advice from other Technical Recruiters that recently joined. I’d be leaving a great company after less than 1 year, but I’d get the chance to upgrade my leveling (perhaps even mgmt) with the bonus of getting experience at a FAANG company. Apple Amazon Amazon Web Services Netflix Google
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 is nobody talking about how Netflix snuck its way into the FAANG acronym?!? They should be REPLACED!!!
What are typical backgrounds for people who go into product management at FAANG companies?
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?
Currently SC at Deloitte on a sick FAANG project with a TC of 170. I’ve only been there since may of last year. I have an offer to be technical program mgr at AWS with TC of 270k. Thoughts??? Probably better exit oops at Amazon right?
Which job would you take? 200k TC with 40 hours a week VS. 240k TC with 60 hours a week (FAANG-Amazon)?
Strongly looking to switch to an SA role but not at Amazon (pip, less comp). Which other FAANG has a similar role? Not looking for gTech (Google) and similar customer engineer positions.
I want to apply to the sourcing role at Facebook. I have 4yrs agency experience 2 yrs full cycle and 2 yrs sourcing for engineering roles at high growth tech companies. I know I can do it! I need help from FAANG recruiters to help prep my resume to increase my chances of being picked up for interview. Anyone feel generous to take a look? Facebook
What’s up with this trend of hiring managers rejecting developers who don’t have FAANG experience on their resume? People in consulting companies also work for clients who handle high traffic and complex architectures. Also, not everyone wants to work at FAANG companies due to moral issues that these big tech companies ignore and blatantly misuse personal data and privacy.
Editing my cv for FAANG strategy roles (specifically Google and Facebook).
Any tips on what to emphasise?
