FB interview in 12 days

Amazon form eh
Nov 2 20 Comments

Currently L6 SDE at AWS. Every day I come home super tired and have 0 desire to spend time on the interview preparation.

Feel free to roast me to give me kick-ass motivation to do LC, prepare for design and behavioral rounds.

    You can get $200k more a year for same level. Enough motivation?

      Do FB L5s get 540k? I don't think so. Do they get more on average? - Hell yeah.

      "Me looking at how poor I am" - that hurts.

      2 more LC problems to solve.

      You said you're L6. If you get L6 in FB (will be hard) - yes.

    Motivation by$$? Isn’t FB the same level stress as amazon? Also, at L6 level you need to learn what to give up. No need to be stressed everyday.

      OP
      $$$ - not really, just wanted to experience a different culture. Also would be cool to not have this everyday struggle of deciding between this sandwich place or that food truck, because my office building doesn't have decent restoraunts nearby. Omg, that hurts, off to solve another LC problem for this comment.
