    You don't need to memorize the leadership principles at FB.

      Have you worked at Amazon before? IMO, over my 3 teams experience the reliance on LPs is what makes Amazon a great place.

      I honestly think the leadership principles are good, but in my experience, most people just memorize and repeat them. Since most of them have another principle that will contradict in most situations, people pick the one that fits what they want.

    In amazon you have to perform like a person one level up to you to be called a good performer

    In FB, only one rule: make manager like you. Not sure how Amazon works

      My opinion is Amazon is mostly the same - making your manager like you is the primary key to at least short term "career success" - but you generally need to get most people outside your team to hate you (or like you so much to go out of their way to help you/your manager).

    Facebook is consistently better than Amazon in every regard.

    Amazon is all about you taking ownership of your job and career path. If you are a doer and have no problem leading and taking initiative then you will love it. If you want to do as little as possible and “survive” then of course you won’t enjoy your stay — go to MS :)

      If you do this at FB you will be fired.

    I was at Amazon and FB now, perks are nicer at FB and you can easily get promoted from E3 -E5 in say record 3 years.

    Amazon is a big place. Depends on the org and team. Some teams are really bad, others are really good.
