To experienced people who worked/work at Amazon.
So I got offer with first year TC of 230k Seattle. I am 30.
I mean considering it's all cash and no state tax it's not bad money at all.
Few months ago Google recruiter reached out to me and I didn't care much cause I didn't have time for months of interview preparations, I kinda decided just to try in the end but didn't even get through phone interview.
After that I felt angry and decided to practice for interviews, Amazon reached out so I decided to give a try for onsite just for practice. The onsite was pretty easy and most people people interviewing were actually from the team and they said they liked me and all. And recruiter pushed for me to give a quick answer.
I think I should be higher level but it's hard to show it, so working a bit for Amazon could give me that experience, and if I am able to move up good if not then I could probably move somewhere else more easily and gain some expertise.
Is it possible I will get PIPed even if I do good? If I don't work more than 40 hours regularly? Do you get severance if you do? Can it happen in first year?
All I hear here is Google good Amazon bad, but I am interested in large scale non SV companies. So I don't have too many options.
Let me know if somebody can give me a bit coaching via Rooftopslushie or something else.
Also, my goal isn't money really, but making real impact, ideally I would have my own startup or somewhere high level in a startup, so that would be ideal goal for me
