Or do you love it? Personally I feel passion for the work I do and I have aspirations within the industry. As much as there are challenges, I also don’t regret my choice. Wondering how others feel?

- New / Eng whe62$shmoreI’m at Amazon Game Studios now and making FAANG money while making games. Life is good.
- It's hard. I can't regret it because my career has grown a lot in the last 10 years. I sometimes feel it would had been easier in a different tech industry but ultimately here I am and I've been part of four AAA games. I wouldn't change that for anything. But sometimes, some days I do feel like I hate this industry and would like to do something else. I think I am fairly compensated (pretty close to a FAANG TC ) but I am the exception not the rule, I have played my cards and politics better than others.
- Mind sharing your tc? Before amazon I was a senior/principal engineer at a small/medium sized game company (around 60 employees). My TC there was 195k all cash. There was a profit sharing plan for when we released games, but that wasn’t very profitable. Now at amazon as an sde3, I’m making 315k TC.
