In late stages of interviewing for both Amazon and Facebook. How does the company culture compare—non-pandemic, in office culture. Anyone who currently works at these two companies have any thoughts?
I won’t go into too much detail here, but feel free to DM me as someone who has worked for both companies.
Why Facebook is better than Amazon:
- Better base pay
- Better perks (in office)
- Better equity (Amazon’s vesting schedule backloads 80% of equity to years 3 and 4—if you can stay that long)
- Better WLB
These are the 4 main reasons I went to Facebook. I have a family of 4 to support and the WLB was very important to me. I’ve been much happier since moving to Facebook
Didn’t realize that Amazon’s equity vesting wasn’t 25/25/25/25. I’m wondering how many people actually stay for the full 4 years…
