I got an offer from fb for e4 position. To people who moved to fb from Amazon, are you happy with the move. Considering that amzn stock is going up so well, will moving to fb be good move.

    Fb 4s should be able to get higher packages to effectively cover Amazon's stock growth. That being said why would you want to work for a vaporware company like fb.

    Couple points. L5 is a career position at amazon, E4 is not. I’ve heard anecdotally from people I know that have gone from amazon (AWS) to fb that the comp/wlb/culture is better at fb however the skill level of most teams and the tech is not.

      You’ll never get let go because you didn’t reach L6, just as long as you keep performing well at an L5 level

      Is amazon talent any better though? The bar was lowered a lot. I have seen some sde2s who don't understand simple recursion in codebase.

    You can buy Amzn stock yourself with FB's salary. You can even buy options. Don't stay for the stock price
