    Amazon interview is not hard tech wise. They assess you on those nonsense leadership principles

      And yet that lower tech bar and nonsense leadership principles resulted in Google getting shit on in the cloud space. Maybe they aren't entirely nonsense.

      That was almost entirely because Google was the last to market with cloud. It has nothing to do with LPs

      I don’t like Amazon but like that their hiring practice is different. Every tech company is using the same process now (why don’t they simply use standard test then?). While other companies are seeking for Google and FB wannabes only, Amazon can find a gem who didn’t have enough time to spend on leetcode. Others will just pick up the ones who failed G and FB who will leave once they have practiced enough leetcode problems instead of contributing.

      This .. I agree .. doing lot of leetcodes doesn’t make one a good engineer and the behavior things matters a lot .. pretty much tech u can copy from SO but behavior is embedded in the person

      Very defensive response to tech bar is not relatively difficult. Sigh.
