prev: SDE at startup tc 160k
current: PM at msft TC 165k
got bored after 6mo and started floating some resumes and doing some interviews for the leetcode practice. flunked a bunch of msft, and amzn interviews and still in the running for some others.
previous company found out i was interviewing and made me a super competitive offer ~220k, on the condition that i drop out of all pipelines immediately.
im honestly kinda over working for a faang-m so im going to take it. theres no negative reprecussions here right?
& Some unsolicited advice ~ Resume stamping with companies/corporations is probably not worth taking on a boring / less influential role at a more prestigious company (brand prestige will deteriorate alongside your skills over time). It is for universities and governments though.
