Pip is more a thing with SDEs. I have never seen an SA piped. Hyper growth in the AWS SA org. We always need more SAs. Microsoft has a similar position. Dont know what it's called though

Thanks! 1. Is the SA role still going to be travel heavy in post-Covid world? I do favor traveling. 2. How does the SA career track progress? Once you get hired as L5/L6, what’s the next step?

It was not very travel heavy pre-covid. Maybe travel once a month. If you support local customers then even lesser travel. So expect the same post covid. If you come in at L6 the next path is L7 as an IC. You specialize in a service, industry, or broader areas like security, compliance, devops and so on. Other path is L6 SA Manager and then L7 Sr SA manager as your org grows (has been happening organically last few years). I personally enjoy the SA role but at crossroads of whether I want to go down the manager path or the L7 IC path. Lets see.

Thank you, great points and detailed answer!

OP, if you don’t mind, can you please share why you’re looking to leave McKinsey? Seems like they have a big push to bring in tech talent. How is it over there?

That’s really helpful, thanks OP.

Could you define SA and PIP please? :)

Understood thanks for clarifying. Any differentiation between AWS vs the rest of AMZN.

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
