I landed an amazon position. It’s a good SDE II offer at 300k TC. At first I felt really good about cracking a “top tier” company. But the more I read here about all their (or lack of) benefits...I cannot help but wonder if Amazon is still all the rage. I worked hard to land this spot...is it still the resume builder it once was?
Anyone able to offer any reassurance that this is still a good place to be for a while?
Not having free food and other random free shit...is fine. Doesn’t make a company any better or worse.
Think of the long game. After your first FAANG, your market demand and TC skyrockets. Everything gets better.
