    AFAIK, QuickSight is growing fast. But way to go to catch up with Tableau and PowerBI

      Nowhere near Tableau. I just pray the team won’t get laid off within 2 months like what happened to me at Oracle :(

      You know layoff is not really an Amazon thing. If the org is dead, people are usually given some grace period to find other internal opportunities. Some SDMs may also bring all the directs to new teams with them

      Hmm dont know much about quicksight. The service is relatively new so there could still be a lot of development. In any case switching teams is easy these days within Amazon, and I think you will get more interesting technical problems at AWS.

      TC is good, although part of it is paper money. Enjoyed the interview, love the culture, like CEO Max.

    Affirm is a very promising company. AWS has no work life balance. I'd choose Affirm
