Lately I have been hearing a lot of people from my peer group moving to Amazon. I have been getting atleast 2 calls from Amazon recruiters per month about a new position where I can be a fit. Is it just me or is Amazon really hiring like crazy.

TC: 115k

      Agree with Thule. This Walmart guy is full of shit. Recruiters be very afraid.

      My offer was 108/24/70 stocks over 4 years. No refreshers, annual bonus at Amazon. My Current TC is 185k not counting refreshers. In addition I got a 50k signon. My role is Data Scientist at Walmart, whereas for Amazon I interviewed for SWE.

      PIPeroosky I don’t care what you think. I make way more than most new grads at Amazon :)

      Yawn..🥱 Best to you and your career at Walmart, the company that’s known for its racial and gender discrimination, foreign product sourcing, treatment of product suppliers, environmental practices, the use of public subsidies, and the company's spying on its employees.

      Every company is evil piperoosky lol. Some companies are marginally better for career growth, though.

      That's a pretty good comp package @Walmart if I'm reading this correctly, with grad roles for amzn SDE starts at 150k if you're not in NYC/bay area. AS starts higher at AMZN too iirc, so might be why you got lower offer.

      You listed your numbers in a strange way though, is it 185k TC for your first year (including bonuses)? Or is it 235k?

      Sure, keep drinking kool aid from Jassy and uncle Jeff. :)

      ?? We don't get koolaid, we get banana smoothies.

      But seriously, there's a reason why AWS is ranked 1 in most metrics, so as part of your PIP do check out market share one of these days.

      Dude, after jedi all these metrics are obsolete, unfortunately. It is a game changer. Otherwise, aws wouldn’t go to court over it.

      JEDI... Means objective measurements and scores... Are obsolete...? 😂

      Your PIP deadline is ticking down! Hurry boy!

      Metrics are for today. In future it will be different, just wait a little. I don’t care about Amazon pip.

    Desperation is taking over. Amazon will shrink a lot, maybe even before the onslaught of the next recession.

      Retail competition from Walmart, Target
      Cloud competition from Azure, GCP

      AWS is like Atlas holding up the whole company.

      They are scraping the bottom of the barrel. Their offers are lower in general and attract corresponding talent.
      Nov 17
    • Qualtrics asdfQsap
      Their offers are not worse / are comparable to MS offers. So, these two are scrapping the bottom then. Offers are lower than fb/g, but relatively good. But I agree in comparison to top, it is bottom.

      Amazon is notorious for not negotiating well with other FANG. Somehow we are content with mid-tier talent :/

      First step in getting top talent: get rid of frugality principle

  • Qualtrics asdfQsap
    Stock is relatively flat for the last 1 year. A lot of people I know from Amazon are leaving. I guess because of stock, people start leaving. They need to fill in their seats. Even some mid tier places can beat their comp. especially in years 3 and 4 and beyond, since stock assumes 15% growth which wasn’t there.
