It seems like everyone at Amazon is going to Google right now. Is the culture there slowly becoming more like Amazon?

Slowly? Cloud is becoming amazon at 100 mph.

In all seriousness, there’s some people who leave Amazonian traits behind and some that stick to those ways. Since cloud is growing, is newer, and hiring tons new folks dont get to experience the old (and I mean 2019 old not 2010 old) google culture.

Plus not all amazon culture is bad. Customer obsession > perf obsession.

I have a huge amount of respect for former Amazon people I work with. They’re net positive for culture (as opposed to ex-Oracle, ex-Accenture, ex-Microsoft)

never worked in consulting. Went to a state school on an athletic scholarship and 2.5 gpa. Not for me.

A lot of people seem to come to Google Cloud to get away from the Amazon culture. Asked one recent transfer why he moved - "I didn't want to keep working with assholes".

Been saving & working hard towards a networth of ~180k (65 home equity) (70 HYSA) (rest is retirement). No investments Outside of 401k But trying to learn more about investing in general. Am I too liquid? Financial advisor brother says I should just open a trading account & just stick w safer stocks but it just seems so scary given the high possibility of headwinds. Anyone else in this position who hoards cash? Is it better to invest in real estate instead? Would appreciate your inputs, thanks!

Boyfriend and I got into a stupid argument last night. We had been drinking and with his co-workers who frequently discuss work. I was already feeling a little meh, so when we got home I was ready for bed. He wanted to watch the last minutes of the debate, but I was cranky and wanted us to go to bed together. I told him I wanted him to come to bed and he didn’t listen, so I angrily walked into the room and shut off the tv. He was then annoyed at me of course. We talked and I explained...

My sister and I have recently both come to the realization that our parents guilt us into spending time with them or visiting them and the guilt causes us both to shut down. Our dad is the main offender, often reminding us how little time we have left with him, asking us why we’re leaving so soon or reminding us about all the good deeds and sacrifices made. We’ve both noticed this shift in our relationship with our parents after graduating from college and starting our own adult lives. Continued
