Kind of surprised at the adoration for Google in this bowl as opposed to Apple, Microsoft, or Amazon. Apple is actually a consumer company and is bigger than Google and Microsoft/Amazon do B2B better. It seems like the go-to example of a tech company to exit to has been Google, nonetheless. Why is this? Do they pay the most?

You’re overthinking this.

Pay and WLB beat literally anything else for most people. If a slinky manufacturer paid me $500k a year at 40 hours a week I wouldn’t think twice about leaving any “interesting” or “prestigious” job that paid less and had me work more. Just my perspective.

Kinda surprised the factors already listed in this thread escaped OP. Must be the Stockholm syndrome that comes from working 70 hours a week.

It's also culture. People at Google come off as really open and friendly externally, whereas we're, admittedly, kind of assholes.

Also spot on on with comments about WLB. We work as much as consultants and Google works much less.

I think Google is run by a lot of ex McKinsey folks (including Sundar Pichai) and they tend to value MBB the most in general. Others not as much. I know a friend of mine from McK who was counseled out and Amzn offered him a L5 even though he was a MBA grad from a school which sent a whole bunch of folks to L6 roles out of MBA.

I interned at Apple during my MBA. The work-life balance is often not better than consulting (50-55 hour weeks with frequent APAC calls), and I found the culture very cold

This was in Operations. Other areas may have better WLB and culture

I am a newly promoted supervisor who has been with my company for 3 years. The promotion came with a salary increase & I was happy about that.

However, since in my new role I have come to discover that people I am now overseeing have a higher pay rate than I do. Some have been with the company longer than I have, some have not.

Maybe it was my bad for not asking for not negotiating my pay raise, but I am wondering what you would do in this situation?
