      I think Indian manager has bigger egos and expectations that you need to treat them like Gods.

      But this is all managers. I've had white male eng managers too. He was by far the worst since he would liberally indirectly cuss at us in 1:1 (this pace is too fucking slow) along with a white lady eng manager who couldnt even schedule a 1:1 for her task and asked us engineers to gather product requirements when that was all the work she had to do. My most chill manager was an Asian American dude who was slightly higher than mid level management

    Geez.. you shouldn’t waste a day there. Interest from other teams show your value, but you being dev-listed in your team shows you hit politics at Amazon and things won’t change in other teams. Leave, you clearly deserve better.

      Dev list is a pre-PIP at Amazon. Blocks you from internal transfers and means your manager is “coaching” you more actively (aka taking better notes of 1:1s).

    Worth starting the networking but does put the both of you in a weird spot being on devlist since you cannot transfer. I’d focus on getting very clear goals and objectives from your manager to be off devlist ASAP. It’s usually a long process though. Can you tell if your manager wants you out of the company or just isn’t super thrilled with your performance ?

    You need to get out of devlist ASAP otherwise when they find out they will not continue the team transfer.

      I was thinking may be they are contacting me after looking at my profile. Isn’t that what managers do before contacting a candidate?

      They wouldn’t know that until you hit the apply button on JobFinder.
