I enjoy the Candor newsletter, and saw in the latest newsletter that the author shortlisted several teams, for instance at Amazon the author shortlisted Amazon Luna, Amazon Halo,
and Amazon Music, calling them “smart bets”. I was wonder why the author recommended these teams. Isn’t the pay on these teams the same as any other team? Is there some useful skillset you would learn on one of these teams? Is it because being on those teams gives bragging rights when you next apply to a job? Or is it because there’s chance to work on an important project and be promoted internally within the company?
Thanks for any insight
