Why do FAANG companies pay above market not just for Eng talent but other non-core functions? Like HR or other functions that are largely similar anywhere else

You pay for value and efficiency. Would you rather have 2 workers in the 40th percentile that cost x vs 1 worker in the 80th percentile that cost x + premium. I'd choose the second over and over again. The best hr experience I had to date was from meta, followed by Google. No one else to date has come close.

I had a great interview experience at meta. One of the few firms where the recruiters knew what was going on, provided useful feedback throughout the process (we debriefed after every round) and actually worked to find me a role that was great fit for me. I went through 3 different roles to find one that worked well.

Ugh, starting next week I’m going back to being unemployed for the first time in about 10-years. I’m not sure if I should go back into the Ad world or one of the FAANG companies.

What’s generally standard among FAANG companies for offer acceptance once one is extended? If anyone has experience with this, is it one week or is it more flexible? I am trying to schedule final onsite with two companies and hoping I can get timing to line up (in the event I am fortunate enough to have offers).

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.
