not happy at amazon alexa for last 6 months, any advice please

Feb 25 23 Comments

I have 4 yoe, L4 (TC = 120/year + 40/2years + 40RSU/4years)

Not happy with anything, TC, team talent, mission of sub org. If any one was good, I would compromise the other two.

1. Can I transfer to another team?

2. Does it have to be alexa?

Get along with everyone but I don’t get invited and involved in many team reviews as well. Feel very lonely or left out of key decisions. Have delivered without any issue thus far.

Open to advice, really will appreciate it. Getting pretty depressed...

      I wouldn’t say that. I can DM you. The information I give can expose me.

      don’t decline.explore the team and manager before making a decision.your friends at amazon can give data points on your manager being good or bad.these data points are available to all amazon employees.

      Only you can answer that; do you have a good relationship with your manager?

      Don't talk to your manager about leaving the team. That usually ends badly.
      You should bring up your other concerns slowly in 1:1s. I think the issue about feeling like you are not included in team reviews and decisions is a safe topic to bring up. See how your manager responds to that and go from there.

    You can transfer to any team as long as you are not le and the new manager approves. Your current manager has no authority to stop it. I'd not tell him until you are sure about the transfer.

      Is this really true? I have heard about toxic managers trying to stop transfers, but maybe that's when you are underperforming.

      ^Thats probably for top performers or key players. Managers want to dumb trash for that new req and a do-over
