    Keep in mind of Amazon’s vesting schedule 5, 15, 40, 40.

      Your bonus will drive up your TC for the first two years, then RSU takes over.

    Join MS and enjoy 30 hours/week so you can LC more and land a better paying job at FANG in a year. Both of these offers are low considering your yoe.

      Salary is compressing recently due to oversaturation of 'sr' level and overpaying for new grads

      I haven't seen a compression at all. If anything, it's going up.

    If that is final, Microsoft. But I suspect Amazon can offer much more stock if you negotiate.

    Microsoft. The benefits and perks more than make up the difference.

    Negotiate for higher stocks at Microsoft. Btw learn more about that team at Microsoft. Haven't heard a lot of good things about it.

    From a business sense AWS > MS.

    MS might have better short term gains but the job you land after AWS is what makes up for it. So if you want to focus on the next 2-3 years, MS. If you want long term payoff, AWS. Don’t let 20k today keep you from 200k tomorrow
