I feel like it is time for a jump and I would like to try other FAANG companies but:
- Apple and Amazon can't compete on pay/benefits.
- Netflix culture is fucking broken.

You were my top option but all these threads about poor WLB made me postpone my plans.

If you keep with this shit you will only hire new grads without a life, who are willing to work long hours and continue to break things fast.

      OP
      I have a few friends working at Facebook and they all feel peer pressure to work long hours. This is not Blind exclusivity.

    Netflix culture is broken, but Amazon, Apple, and Facebook culture aren't?

      Amazon is less dysfunctional than Google.

      If you’re senior or skilled enough at Amazon you could have a choice of teams. Amazon is known to negotiate aggressively if you nail your interviews and go for top tier teams (S3, DynamoDB, etc)

      There are top tier teams at both companies, you know?

      Of course.

      But if you want a change of pace without the bullshit, Amazon is a good bet.

      There are fast-paced teams at Google as well. But of course. You are aware.

      Not even pip. They let go for people who fail the keepers test. However you do get paid a shit ton of severance (4 months worth)

      There is no PIP. If your manager decides, out of their ass, that they would not counter a potential offer from another company they just fire you on the spot.

      lol keepers test is way worse than PIP. Manager asks every six months or so if laying you off will make a difference to company. If it seems like it will not, you will be laid off. Basically like in a sports team. Read the culture page on their job website. Puts Amazon’s ridiculous cult leadership principles to shame.
