Edit so others can see:
✅Much better TC and amazing vesting schedule. You get stock vests every year.
✅Better benefits like food and medical, 401k
✅ No bullshit “fragility” principle which Amazon uses to cheap out on employes
✅ Nicer management and you won’t get Pipped (Amazon has a thing called a PIP which gives managers an excuse to fire you.
✅ Smarter people (Amazon hires anyone half decent tbh. I came to my interview after drinking 2 margaritas and I passed easily. Would have gotten destroyed at google)
🚫 Much harder to get in compared to Amazon
🚫 Often won’t pay high unless you match an offer
✅ lower bar so easier to get in. As I said, I was basically drunk in my interview and got in.
✅ Easy to transfer to different orgs and teams but the pay doesn’t go up much when you do.
🚫 Horrible vesting schedule. 5% vest in year 1, 15% year 2, 20% in year 3 and 4. Good luck getting more stocks after year 4.
🚫 annoying frugality principle which let’s them be cheap. I had to request an ergonomic desk so many times before I got it approved.
🚫 no free food, only free bananas.
🚫 management is very toxic and arrogant.
🚫 many unhappy employees
🚫 promotions are very random and difficult.
