Want to crack into FAANG

I'm an average engineer, though at Salesforce I'm fairly considered a top performer as per performance reviews. But I consider myself an average coder, good at architecture design and systems design though. Is it enough to slog through leetCode/interviewbit for a month or two to get into the FAANG companies? How long should typical preparation for an average engineer take. I do have calls from all the companies except Netflix. Trying to estimate the amount of preparation I need to put in. 7+ years of exp btw.

    first of all, disconnect your performance at work with interview prep, there is no correlation. Any leetcode πŸ’ can pass FAANG.

    Good thing is at salesforce you have plenty of time to prep and lots of conference rooms to take interviews.

    No one can tell you how long it will take. You should be able to solve most LC mediums within 30 mins to have a shot at FB/G. Amazon is a bit easier coding wise, tougher behavioral wise. No idea bout Netflix and Apple.

      Any thoughts on how interviewbit correlates with Amazon interview?

      I have no idea about interviewbit, sorry. But my interview rounds were mostly direct from LC mediums with small twists.

    I prepared for a couple of weeks. I would allocate 3-4 weeks if I were to do it again.

    Could take 2 weeks to prep, could take 6 months. Really depends on you.
