I am thinking of leaving my job at Microsoft to go to Amazon. I have a non-compete clause in my contract. Do the companies really do something if the employee go to work inmediately to a competitor?

    You can join competitor and work in another team which doesn't do same line of work just to satisfy the clause

    They don't care unless you are principal

    OP
    If they care, how do people transfer between big companies? Do they wait for the period of time the contract says? Are the companies aware of that when they hire someone?

      Non-competes are illegal in California, but legal and enforceable in Washington.
