Originally I am hired at Amazon, Palo Alto but I have to stay at Vancouver for 1y. I heard the TCs are different for both city. Do I get two TC for both city, or dO I get TC only for one? How do they determine TC?

    I heard you can't transfer internationally now without VP approval (unless work authorization is expiring etc). If that is the case, be careful.

    Amazonians?

      You won't be able to transfer back to Palo Alto without VP approval.

      What I mean to say is - if you are legally eligible to work in Vancouver and there are no visa issues etc, you'll need a VP approval to transfer to the US.

      Why are you staying in Vancouver for 1 year? It's better to start in Palo Alto. You don't have US work authorization?

      Do the Amazon on-call for 1 year. Get only 5% vested and then they won't transfer you to the US. They'll get another Pradesh to replace you in Canada.
      Rinse and repeat! Jeff is the richest man in the world for a reason.

      I dont have US working visa. They want to "park" me at Vacouver before I am eligible for L1 visa. That's why they want to send me Vacouver first and bring me to Seattle later.

      Check with someone who works at Amazon (other than recruiter), there is an internal doc on this.

      If I move company, then my TC will be changed? Because I heard the TC in vancouver is lower than Palo Alto.
