How are the refreshers for ICT4 Technology Product Manager in AMP org like approximately?

Apple folks could you please provide any insights.

Received offer: 175k Base + 35k signon + (160k / 4 years)

Average of Apple offer over 4 years excluding refreshers, bonus and hikes is 225k.

Hear that WLB at Apple is better. i like traveling and getting involved in other stuff like entrepreneurship.

Competing offer from Amazon, L5 SDE2 in Bay Area TC: 265k (Average over 4 years is 250k)

Currently SDE2 with TC: 160k, YoE: 2.5

I read that there aren’t any refreshers, performance bonus and hikes at Amazon.

Considering WLB and Visa status (Currently on F1 OPT and have 2 H1B tries, don’t want to get PIPed at Amazon) which offer do you think is the best? Please comment.

    You need to think carefully. Going from eng to PM is relatively easy. Coming back will be much harder.

      That is true. Which one has better career prospects? My status of being on F1 OPT Visa is just making me biased towards Apple because Amazon has that PIP culture. However I love both development and product management.

      If that's your primary concern, I would stick with eng. For every 10-15 engineers there is generally 1 PM. You will have a better career path and mobility.

      Wait doesn’t it mean that there is a good growth for PM? Yeah I love Development too. I am only worried about PIP at Amazon cause of visa.

      I could. Correct me if I am wrong but I hear some companies that include Facebook, stopped hiring candidates with one year OPT remaining. But I see your advice. I would love to take Amazon as well. Get that experience.

      Well what would you suggest? I do not think that about SDEs though.
