What level should I expect at FAANG? I have a PhD in CS from a world top 10 university. I did a PhD after working 3 years in the industry, and since my PhD, another 3 years have passed. Currently I'm a staff engineer in the semiconductor industry (hence no FAANG). On seniority: 50% I'm acting tech & team lead, scrum master, regularly negotiating with stakeholders, across multiple teams etc., 50% actively developing. Options: generalist SWE at Google /Facebook (Meta) or embedded SWE at Meta.
I am 7 year experienced professional in IT industry, I am serving notice period what are the steps to approach FAANG Companies
Is a TC 160-170k for Amazon BIE L5 in NYC appropriate? I have 1yoe FAANG analyst and 3yoe non-faang mar/consulting roles.
Reg. why leaving, just a personal reason. No pip, no conflict with teams.
For those who have worked at multiple FAANG companies, what are the biggest differences between them?
Anyone worked at multiple FAANG companies? I’m trying to choose between 2 and can’t decide.
How much would my tech stack and language be a factor in getting selected in faang or good product based companies?
I'm asking from getting my resume selected to getting an offer.
I read everywhere that only DSA and system design is needed, but I'm still concious about my tech stack.
YOE: 5 years
Tech stack: .NET backend and sql server
Language I'm comfortable with: C#

Anyone have suggestions for getting into FAANG companies? I’ve been a CD and Generalist for 15 years in NY/LA in post, advertising and vfx, with a handful of years in UI/UX and product development. Never thought it would be this hard to get in the door. Any help would be appreciated. Facebook (Meta) Apple Amazon Netflix Google
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
Hello fishes I am serving notice period and it's my dream to work in one of the FAANG. YOE- 4.6 Domain - IT PROJECT MANAGEMENT Kindly provide referral Facebook (Meta) Amazon Apple Netflix Google
Everyone talks about FAANG and often times it seems like they mean “Google” or maybe fb/amazon. I never hear about Apple. What are consultant exits like there? Anyone know someone who made the jump?
Why isn’t Microsoft included in FAANG? I feel like it should be in over Netflix, but FAAMG just doesn’t sound as cool.
Do FAANG lowball offers nowadays? Got an Amazon offer with 130k TC. I am making 180k TC now. The recruiter told me I should consider FAANG brand and career potential. I think Amazon already doesn't have great WLB, and it doesn't sound like they truly value me.
Are FAANG companies really the place to be for SWE’s? I want to work for one but I’m worried about culture & work/life balance.
Shocking reality: your GPA and test scores don't make you special.
The reality is that there will be more qualified people applying to HBS or any other top Business schools than they have spots. If you aggregate the number of people from MBB/ banking/Tech/ Military that apply to these firms, I would argue that’s well north of the 50% of these applicants. I can also assume that the people from these backgrounds are likely to have north of a 3.5 GPA due to the selectivity of these careers.
I am looking for a new job in biotechnology/pharmaceutical industry in NJ/Eastern PA area. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
So I'm a single dad, which I feel can be tough sometimes - doesn't fit with gender norms. It's the professional equivalent of not having baby changing stations in the mens room.
Just thinking out loud.
Why am I finding it so difficult to find a Business Analyst/Sales & Marketing Performance Analyst role in my preferred location even after having 2+ yrs of experience with a good portfolio?
Am I trying to look for the same really soon or am I not skilled enough?
Some expert advice would really help.
I've have an offer with MindTree already. Can we also attend interview with LTI. I understand a merger is going to take place. But if I get offered more I would like to consider the higher offer.Lnt infotech

Used to think Canada is a better place to live in comparison to US bcz of free healthcare, in fact for a while I was looking for ways to move to Canada. Recently had to do a detailed research of Canada and I realized how misinformed I was 🤦🏻♀️ everything is too expensive:
Car insurance: over 450 a month, cell line with very limited internet access over 80 a month, banks have fees to keep your money, cash your checks, or if you have over a certain number of transactions, wthhhh

So why do we not tax wealth?
We know you can drive benefits from just having "wealth" even if you never realize the gains from property or shares.

Yes, yes, yes. It’s called regulation. Somewhere between Europe and the US is a common-sense way to guide businesses to benefiting their customers and users, not just their shareholders.
Facebook, Amazon, Google. They all built extremely useful tools that billions use everyday. If they want to throw money at the best and brightest to develop means to reach more users, that's their prerogative.
Not reach more users, drive more clicks
