I will be joining Amazon this month and just wondering how much it adds to profile. I interned at ebay but it didn't add a significant value to my profile while looking for full time roles. Would like to know career growth at and after amazon.

    No value. Only FNG adds value to ur resume.

      Not really. Before I joined amazon recruiters would give me time of day. After joining amazon, you will have recruiters from fng and msft reaching out to you from first weeks.

      Nah, Apple. We get recruiters in our inboxes all the time from other top tier companies.

      I've been at Amazon for 1 month and I've already said no to a Linkedin and a Microsoft recruiter.

    Not sure how to answer your question but I get messages/emails from recruiters of Google/Facebook/Uber etc all the time. Just depends on you, or rather me if I can crack their interviews or not.

      Agreed! It depends upon you! And the work you have done. Companies do matter but are not the deciding factor. I get recruiter calls from Google/Uber/Airbnb/FB etc all the time.

    Even I will get pings from recruiters of F,G,MSFT. It’s not about the company that adds the value, it’s about what you do there that matters !

    Amazon on your resume will get you interview calls from most companies. Doing well there would also get you interview calls from the smallest, hottest startups

    You should have asked that before accepting the offer. Good luck!

      What you would suggest between amazon(Wa), Microsoft (NC) , ebay and yahoo( CA)

      Amazon. All day long.

      NC Microsoft is a bit of a dead end site. Yahoo is a dead end career.

      It maxes out at 160k.
      I think even principal engineers don't make more than 160k base.

    You’ll get a free HJ but asked to deploy code during the same for having Amazon on your resume!
