Thread regarding layoffs

Incompetence no longer surprises me

These and similar situations surprised me for a while, but not anymore, because they've become too common:

AWS hiring process is COMPLETELY BROKEN!
Many incompetent managers, nepotism and favoritism ..
I know my friend who had average knowledge of the domain .. he was hired at L6.
Not sure how he passed technical competency and raised the bar LOL
He struggled so much and use to get my help for understanding some of his projects. eventually, he was so stressed. he has take an unpaid leave for a month and finally QUIT within seven months! he took a 30% TC cut and joined another company.

We are now surprised when someone competent comes, right?

The problem with hiring competent people is the fact the incompetent managers have no idea what to do with them. Not saying I’m competent but my manager is completely lost in the role and faking it only gives everyone headaches because we have to hold it in and (silently) “disagree and commit” to whatever they say. It’s such a shame that AWS hiring philosophy is this broken.
