My friend currently works in Microsoft India. His wife is moving to US, and he has got offer from Microsoft Redmond as well as Amazon US.

There is a difference in comp. Amazon is paying much higher.

But to work for Amazon he would have to get work authorizarion first which might take 3-6 months of time.

Which option is better?

      Ok, sorry. In my opinion 'your friend' should work in the company that he is not allow to work on. #believetheimpossible.

    What about visa wd Microsoft?
    I don’t think he can come for any company without visa. And if that is H1B visa, he need to wait till next April.
    Instead, he can come as dependent on his wife’s visa and he can join company once his visa gets approved. Or another option is take some courses(MS or something) and utilize that time.

      If he wants H1B then, this year’s deadline is gone in April. Now next lottery will be in April.
      You have to wait till next April.

    Amazon is the superior choice due to high TC.
