My company went toxic in the last couple months. Chose me and started interviewing. Had a very successful interview with Amazon but recruiter is working hard trying to place me and said there’s no knowing how long to find a team. Meanwhile I just received a Director offer for a company with a 29% pay bump July 1. If Amazon or any other FAANG/large co gets back to me, is there an acceptable way to not burn bridges with new job and accept or delay start date with FAANG? Or fuck it just hop?

I wouldn't worry too much about burning a bridge at a place like Amazon. It's so huge, I doubt they'd remember you bailing on their offer 2 or 3 years from now.

What about the opposite? Me joining a new smaller company and leaving for FAANG

I have not heard great things about working at Amazon. Jumping to such a big company while the economy is trending downwards isn’t a risk I would be willing to take. I’d jump to the 29% more role and stick it out a few years then pursue Amazon again.

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post as well as my first switch after working 6y in the same organisation.

Recently I have cleared two interviews one from

2) Cognizant with 15 LPA (14.3 fix, 0.7 variable) - documents submitted, yet to receive offer letter.

YOE: 6y
LWD: June 6

Considering the opportunities I have which one would be the better choice in work culture wise.

I am aware that I’m really flaky and just not reliable when it comes to things that aren’t super important. Example say I have 1:1 with a potential mentor or career chat, but I have a pressing meeting the same day. I’ll post pone it to prepare. Sometimes that happens multiple times. I don’t do it on purpose, it just happens. This has caused people to really not care/distance themselves from me, understandable. How do I get to be more reliable? Or just not flaky?
