Amazon Alexa AI Team SDE 2 vs Microsoft Azure Level 60?
Hi I have received an offer from Amazon AlexaAI team located in Seattle. The recruiter reached out asking me a salary I am expecting. I said I am expecting 250k (Have got competing offers).
Please help me out with your insights.
The current level they are offering is SDE 2, L5.
1. What is the expected pay I can ask for?
2. Currently the team is in Seattle, can I ask for an opportunity in Bay Area? (Family and Girlfriend are in Bay Area)
3. I see a lot of complains about WLB at Amazon and have also seen some of my friends complain about it. Does anyone here have any idea about how AlexaAI team is?
My other offer is:
Microsoft Azure Data & Intelligence team:
I know there’s no job safety in any company and we have to perform, saying that which among these two companies is stable. I see a lot of posts about PIPs at Amazon.
I am on F1 OPT visa and I have two more shots at H1B. Microsoft said they would send me to Canada if I don’t get H-1B. What would Amazon do?
Any insights are really appreciated. Puns are also welcome 🍿
