Location: India
Current TC: 3.5 million INR (35 lacs/annum)

Both Apple and Uber are offering similar TC: 5.5 million INR (55 lacs/annum). Except in the case of Uber around 20 lacs/year is paper money.

Yoe: 6.5

Questions:

1. Which has a better brand name - Apple or Uber ?
2. How's Work life balance in Uber (especially Hyderabad) and how does it compare to Apple ?
3. How often do Apple/Uber fire people or put them on PiP ?

    Uber for sure. Faster growth. Great bonuses. Wlb may take a hit though

    The only teams we have in Hyderabad are IS&T. It is an armpit of the company and a toxic place to be.

      @skad00sh - ads serving team in ISS. I'm getting ICT3. I'm negotiating the pay in light of the Uber offer. What's your take on this org ?

      Meh. It’s not exactly a team with high visibility FWIW. A good way to measure the visibility of a team is checking how long your peers and US counterparts have been in their respective roles and whether they’ve been promoted.

    Both of them don't have good teams in Hyderabad. Switch for the TC. Return to msft with the TC bump - rest and vest
