Back to Amazon. Same shit, different day

Amazon 5’6 Indian
Aug 4, 2018 68 Comments

After I went to microsoft, I stopped even getting replies for phone screens from google. The brand is so shit and azure is such a mess. After a few months, I still don’t know how people get anything done here. I guess everyone is spending their time trying to get into the elite companies such as google and facebook that they don’t actually do any work. Seriously what is wrong with these people? I was so fed up that I contacted my old manager at amazon and was able to transfer back to my old team. I knew amazon was shit when I left for microsoft, but I didn’t know how bad microsoft was. At least amazon has been getting more prestigious, although still nowhere near the level of google and snapchat. But damn, now that I’m back, it’s the same shit, different day. fml

    Maybe your problem is that you're too short. People are forced to look down upon you even to have a simple talk.

      Snapchat more prestigious than amazon. Did you happen to mention this anywhere publicly? Maybe the google recruiters saw this and decided not to call. I agree it pays more but it has nothing to do with prestige.

    Hmmm, I am in Azure and I can’t count the times Google called me. Now that I want to interview, I have onsites scheduled with G, FB, LinkedIN, Apple and OCI.

    And I have super high impact in the org I work in and a great project that I started and own e2e. All of that while still L61. Maybe it is you? Or maybe you ended up in a bad team and you are generalizing about a huge company?

      Just joined MS recently. How did you become top performer at level 61? You did more complex work that had more impact than the principal engineer in your team? I assume there can be only 1 top performer in a team, right?
      Aug 4, 2018
    • Microsoft TC_GTFO
      I think only 5% of org (M2 level are top performers)

      Be proactive, manage your own stuff, find gaps and improvement opportunities and do them, make your manager’s life easier not harder, bring answers to the table, not questions, be independent, innovative. Take high impact and high visibility work
      Aug 4, 2018
    • Microsoft DOyu71
      Its true 5% get max rewards roughly speaking. You can have ssas and be considered a top performer well below that. It's also done by level band so a top sde II and a top principal would be expected to have vastly different impact.

    It’s kind of funny. The whiny post reminded me of 5’6 Indian, and lo and behold!
    > prestigious
    > Snapchat
    Lolol

    If you want to join google or facebook, why not just interview and do it? The interviews aren’t noticeably harder (in my experience actually easier)

      So why are you still at Amazon?
      Aug 4, 2018
    • Amazon / Eng onMyWay
      Because I thoroughly enjoy the work here, and I think Amazon is a really cool company. I interned at google and while I received a return offer, I got placed back on the team I interned on. Not a fan of ads at all.
      Amazon does cool shit, and AWS has been amazing as far as working along side smart people and learning tons.

    ... so just after you switched to a new job recruiters stopped messaging you. You ever think it's because you just got a new job and from there recruiter perspective you're probably not going to switch again the month after?
