      Not true! Like LI != MSFT.
      Zappos is wildly experimental company. They got rid of all managers and job titles few years ago for many teams and wanted to do that for the whole company.

      “ The new management system, known as Holacracy, rejects traditional workplace hierarchy, job titles, and other staples of the traditional workplace”

      I’m surprised that OP’s position has a title and it’s SDE2.

    They are basically migrating to Amazon culture and policies it seems. And maybe the HR databases are already shared because they seem to be aware of each other’s processes.
