Does getting referrals/interviews become easier after working at Amazon? Do FAANG recruiters cold-email Amazon engineers?

    Amazon recruiters also cold email Amazon employees for Amazon roles. 😂😂. This is not a joke.

  • Absolutely it does. It's just business. There's a higher probability that you will be a good fit for FAANG if you've already worked for a FAANG company. When a company has spent the time to hire and groom an engineer, other companies capitalize on that by trying to woo them in vs trying to hire/groom someone outside FAANG

      Amazon isn't necessarily better than Oracle in terms of engineering hiring bar

      it is, people will flock to amazon, the only thing it's missing is free food and generous vacation policy. it has all the innovative work required to make a difference in this world and it's probably the only company that can give Google and Facebook a run for its money. the engineers at Amazon dont just have an internal confidence to make those bold bets and stick longer. they should be more prouder than think they are really start making insane bets. I am literally craving to work at the Amazon scale but unfortunately I am never able to get a job ther, lol

      I mean if you stay at Amazon and manage to be promoted, it says a lot more vs being promoted at Oracle

    This should be happening with you at Oracle as well. You've gotta change something with your profile if that isn't true.
