      Is that TC for 2018 mostly due to stock appreciation?
      If AMZN was almost flat since the time you joined, how much would you make in 2018?

    What do you do exactly as a QA?

      Finding issues I guess. Functional. Performance, etc.

      IMO companies are trying to reduce headcount but still humans are needed. Many tests cannot be automated or is hard to do so. Also in my experience automation ppl most of time worry about having their test suites pass and not about finding issues.

      Yup that can be a case, but both approaches combined can give the best results.

    Ps your pay is horrendously high :D Google doesn’t pay me that much as SWE, also Google has contractors for QE and they earn 1/3-1/2 of this, almost no QE in Google is a full-time employee
