Career growth in FAANG

Jun 6, 2019 24 Comments

Hi. Got interview calls from FB, google and Amazon. But before I continue to prepare my self, I wanted to check what's career growth like in these companies? Do you ever get stuck in the same position forever? I have 8 YOE and I'm changing technology just to learn more and more. But I have only done BS(CS) overseas. Do you think it would be wise for me to apply? How much TC can I get with this much experience and can i move up the ladder or will I be stuck in the same position forever?

    You literally cannot get "stuck." Tech is mostly up or out, it's not government work :)

    At Amazon it largely depends on what team you land in. Some people get promoted twice in 3 years, others are held back despite 3 years of great performance. Not very reliable from what I've seen, but a lot of people start here and then move to F, G or other single-letter companies.

    How did you get all the calls at the same time, is it for SDE? I mean I am very happy for you. I also want to be in the same scenario

      I have seen plenty in different spaces doing such. But anyways not the point I wanna talk about as it doesn't lead to anything. :)
