Amazon tzBp11
May 31 20 Comments

I am currently working at Amazon Hyderabad and about to be promoted at SDE2 level. I have an offer from Apple Bangalore for IC3 level.
The base salary which Apple is offering is about 24 lakh and 12 lakh/yr RSU which is similar to what I will get in Amazon.
The Apple is expanding its existing US team and setting up a new team at Bangalore.
Should I switch my company?

    I checked with a friend of mine in PIE..he said that telemetry is the least important group in pie with full of Indian service company people. The offered compensation numbers reflect that as well..
