Amazon vs Zillow offer

Microsoft opqrst

Received two Software Eng offers in Seattle.
Amazon offer - $205k tc
Zillow offer - $235k tc
3 yoe after college, L61, current tc - $165k

Which one would you choose and why? I’d prefer good wlb and job security and also want career growth in the long run without taking a lot of workload and being stressed out too much now.

      I’m a bit confused about how Zillow will look in the resume and the growth and learning opportunity there compared to Amazon.

      This is about your work and not optics of which brand name looks better on resume. It’s not like Zillow is a bad name to be associated with.

    Bro why Seattle? Come to Bay Area A9. Your current Amazon offer should recalculate to 245K TC easily. And you will get your wlb. This is what I did and I'm super happy.

      And you can kiss that extra money goodbye in taxes and difference in cost of living. But if it makes you or anyone else happy then I can't hate.

      Taxes aren't that bad, man. When you calculate, you're taking more home in Bay Area than Seattle.

    Pick Amazon. Only Amazon gives you unlimited work, a perk you shouldn't miss.

    Take Zillow. Amazon’s poor wlb and benefits aren’t worth it.

    My suggestion is join the amazon boot camp for a couple of years and forget about wlb. Then get your pick of companies that offer wlb and growth. Again also depends on which team in Amazon.

      Sorry to hear that :( I guess competing offers and aggressive negotiations might help you achieve your tc goal!

    You will learn a lot at Amazon, not much at Zillow. Since you are young, factor that in. In three years, you are far more valuable coming from Amazon than coming from Zillow.
