Good wlb but bad job security (high pip rate but work given is reasonable, eg Amazon)

Bad wlb but good job security (lots of work given but low pip rate, eg ?)

Bad wlb and bad job security (loads of work and high pip rate, eg FB, Netflix)

Good wlb and good job security ( ideal state. Eg Google, Microsoft)

    Google doesn't have good wlb throughout. There are few teams with good wlb, but good part is you might get laid off because AI replaced you!

      Same. Even though we're at evil Amazon.

    Been on two teams and both were a shit show. Dev lists come out and stress happens. It’s just awful. The dirty secret is they don’t want you to vest. They try to get rid of you before that

    As with everything, this mostly depends on your team.

    Those things are not related. You can work 20 hours a day and still get laid off.

    Do you want to make money or not and retire early?

      OP would rather make $1 every year for 100 years than $100 in one year.

    I would take bad WLB and good job security and Good WLB and good job security. I have had both and definitely enjoyed it. In the end I feel like I perform better when I feel like I will be there to see the end state of my work.

    Amazon has good WLB? Are you out of your mind? Look at the vesting schedule - you wouldn’t have RSU vest in 3rd and 4th year alone if the burnout attrition wasn’t high enough

    Walmart is good wlb and definitely high job security. We thrive in recessions.
