Do people at AMZ/FB/Goog really have 60+ hrs/wk of work to do ?
I've honestly been coasting for more than a couple of months now - to the point that i feel bad collecting salary.. obviously am currently interviewing..
Funny thing is, I was promoted recently to L65 - and to be honest don't think I did anything spectacular to earn it.. maybe a month or 2 last year where I might have spent say 50+ hrs a week and sent a couple of long emails over the weekend..
Am in one of the Azure groups - so good visibility.
But I want to know from folks at Amazon/Facebook/Google/Netflix/Oracle (companies I've interviewed with not all of which I received offers from) - how regularly do you guys put in 50-60hr weeks ? Also is it really "work" or more of looking busy attending meetings and writing email ?
