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 affectionately call what you are in the firehose stage, because you're getting blasted with so much information it's like someone told you to take a drink and then hit you with the force of water from a firehose. For the first little while you feel lucky just not to drown, but you are soaking up a ton of information every day, and eventually you'll notice that you're not so overwhelmed.

100% this, it happens to literally everyone and it can be very overwhelming at first, but you just gotta take it one day at a time and know that you'll catch up soon enough

This is normal in most tech companies from my experience. Take your time and don't feel pressured to catch up

This is definitely normal. There’s a sharp learning curve. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

What documents? Documents can be leaked, so most things are tribal knowledge unless it’s API docs.

I had the same experience when I started! I actually used flash cards to learn new acronyms more quickly and it ended up being really helpful.

Super normal and just went through it myself, took 3 months to get “comfortable”, just have to take it a day at a time and don’t try to learn everything all at once 🙏🏽

It's like trying to take a sip of water out of a fire hose, isn't it??? Don't give up. It'll all make sense eventually. For now, just take it one day at a time and do your best.

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

Question on on labor laws in the US:

Received an offer from Amazon but I'm concerned about negotiating hard and ending up with an offer that's on the higher end of the pay band when compared to the rest of the (future) team. My concern is during an economic downturn, it would be easier to let me go if the team needs to be downsized. This would be because I would have the least experience on the team & more expensive to retain from a cost perspective.

My concerns valid? #amazon #aws #faang

Where do people leaving FAANG companies go to in Canada? I’m looking for a change but it seems like a lot of the Canadian based companies pay half of what I’m currently making. Who outside of FAANG / LinkedIn/ snap / Twitter pays well (I.e senior mgr / director level above $300k)

Trying to figure what TC includes at FAANG companies. When they say 150k base, 30k bonus and 100k RSUS... is your TC 280k? Or is the RSU over a 4 yr period? So, only base + bonus + quarter the RSU is the yearly TC??
