Moved to Amazon, already missing Microsoft benefits
People keep cribbing about compensation, rightfully.
But the difference you're seeing is not as signficant as it appears. There are a lot of benefits we take for granted in Microsoft. Just over a month in Amazon and I'm already noticing that very clearly.
There is a problem to fix, but not as bad as people complaint here. And yes, the internal vs new hires difference is still a big concern I think.
