Amazon SDE1 vs Nordstrom Eng 2 Offer Evaluation(Seattle)
I have 3 years of work experience and make close to 120k a year in the Greater Seattle area with an 8% annual bonus. The stock grants at my current company are not really substantial.
I got an offer from Amazon SDE1(L4) on the Amazon Global Expansion team. The details of that are:
1) Base pay: $115,000
2) Sign on bonus: $45000(25k at sign on and 20k over the second year)
3) 40 RSU's
So that makes it a total TC of $144250(115000 + 45000/4 + 72000/4)
I also have another offer from Nordstrom for Engineer 2 role on the Supply chain and warehouse team.
The details are
1) Base pay $125,000
2) 20% annual bonus(50% based on personal performance, 50% based on company performance)
So TC of close to 150k
I also gave an onsite interview at Apple on the Siri team in Cupertino this week but haven't heard back from them.
My top choice is Amazon. So I wanted to ask if there is room for improvement on both the offers and what strategy would you guys suggest to make the most out of my current situation.
