    Amazon. Nothing amazing is being worked on at MS, Vancouver. We mostly use it to house international employees who couldn’t secure a work visa. Those employees then apply for a B1/L1 visa and periodically visit Redmond until they can get the H1 visa and move here full time.

      Almost 100% of the teams in Amazon Vancouver is local. The exact opposite of MsVan. Amazon for sure if you care about career growth and wish to settle in Vancouver.

    Apply to both get offers and compare. Both are about the same

    Amazon. My friend interned at Amazon Vancouver and loved it. She is going back for FT. There's tons of teams there apparently, and the pay is really good too. One of my other friends didn't really enjoy his time at Microsoft Vancouver, said interns were too siloed from FTs. Idk about FT experience though. He's not going back.
