Currently at L4 at Amazon. Will be promoted in Q3.
Comp wise Google is nearly matching Amazon L5. (Slightly less, but the perks ought to bridge the gap). Google is giving 210k, while Amazon would be around 220K
Do I want to work at Amazon for one more year? - No
Do I think that Google is down levelling and this will waste one year of my career? - Yes

Any suggestions?

Current TC: 180k
Yoe : 2 yrs

    Go to google. Worst case you can come back to Amazon, every day Amazon hiring bar keeps dropping, for all you know you’re coming back as L6 in Amazon after couple of google years.

      that's an overly simplistic saying for investing beginners. certainly is an indicator just not a guarantor.

      Google ipo time still had some new successful product releases

      google last 10 years, what's been successful

      that's great that you are hopeful but investors aren't and that affects the stock price as people vest today

      a bit painfully obvious u just writhing and twisting to support ur original bad argument but u still wrong that it doesn't matter. not much point to pointing it out to u at this point so think about it if u ever curious

      It's more prudent to not include stock growth for the offers because you can't assume anything with the market.

      But you can assume great refreshers that stack up well and no TCT at Google.

      @Somebody How do you guys make such blanket statements without even knowing which location you are talking about?

      I just signed Amazon L4 at $190k.
