    Different teams at VMW have different wlb. But across the board VMW wlb > AMZ wlb. Pretty sure our benefits are better too.

    Amazon for brand and stock appreciation!

    Also, make it a poll.

      Amazon for brand. I thought Vmware brand was better.

      Nope. Am sure more recruiters reach out if you have FANG on your resume.

    I recommend VMware. Wlb is great, perks and tc better than amazon. The stock has been doing very good too.

      Huh? I didn't say bad. Its comparison.
      Create a poll and get opinion from others

      If you are working at vmware does nt mean its better than amazon in terms of brand.

      TC at L6 AWS should have been more than 50K higher than Staff 1

      Amazon. Spend few years there and move on to vmware or other company if wlb is important.

    TC is of low priority. Brand, Title and WL Balance, Stability are high priority.
