I got above offers.
Current Exp: 13 years
FB offer: 190, 500k, 15%, 100k joining bonus.
Amazon: 185, (360 over two years) , 500k rsu (5,15,40,40)
Google is ready to match FB/amazon
These are without any negotiation.
I am leaning towards joining Google if they match comp. Am I crazy?
EDIT: . I have worked for large companies for the longest time. But now looking for money and career growth.

      13 yoe, L4? Um... thanks but no thanks. I'd go with Amazon for the scope.

      Only need some brand name for resume. If I can grow there that's well and good. Otherwise Want to jump to a startup after that.

      If you want brand name, Google is probably the best for that

      There is no brand name for google l4. A college grads can get that easily..

      College grads start at l3

    Google is probably more stable than the other 2.
    But if AMZN stock keeps running up then your TC will grow exponentially.
    You still need to make decision based on what you want, money, stability, WLB, etc...

      Stability in terms of controversies, PR issues, etc...
      Not size, money or revenue ! I should've been more clear

      Amazon seems pretty stable and looking at FB earnings they aren't going anywhere either.
      Apr 2
    • Yahoo Genius
      Earnings are good for all of them

      The instability is coming from controversies, PR stunts, etc... I hope it's clear now

      Okay it didn't take so long to show what I was talking about. Take a look at FB news that just came out, that's the instability i am talking about. You don't wanna be in a place which people talk about almost on a daily basis. (Tell me about it, have been there and still, it's too much distraction and uncertainty and gossip)

    In the Bay Area, amazon offices there isn’t as nice as G or F.

    FB - refreshers will be a lot more since higher level, so longer term better. FB and G are about equal prestige wise anyways.

    You really want to take google L4 over Amazon sde3?

    • Amazon B0z0s
      Not a rule. Depends a lot on interview performance.

      What do you mean by not a rule?
      Apr 3
    • Amazon B0z0s
      In that it's not a blind mapping. Strong candidates can get a higher level. And weak candidates can get down levelled either way.

      Amazon sde3 is really good for scope and responsibility. It's equivalent to fb e6 and google l5
      Apr 12
    • Facebook / Eng D g
      Lol no. E5 = sde3. Op was downleveled at G

    Really good for L6. Highest salary possible and stock is pretty good. But not sure if it'll grow.

  • Amazon Aidwn
    google l4 cannot match AMZN l6 offer (which is 400k tc before negotiation.), Google will not be able to do 400k for Google l4. Amazon l6 allows you to lead a small team immediately (very likely, amzn l6 actually has larger scope than l5 at G or F), with google l4 there is no way for that.

    • Amazon Aidwn
      If you want career growth and highest tc, amzn l6 is probably the only way out.
      Apr 2
    • Facebook / Eng dudne
      Amazon L6 translates to Google/FB L5. OP would be better of taking FB E5 or Amazon L6
      Apr 2
    • Facebook / Eng dudne
      Highest TC is definitely FB, unless you believe Amazon stock will keep growing 40% YOY forever

    Careful joining AWS as L6. Make sure you have a technical manager who's comfortable navigating the Amazon environment

    If you want money - Google/FB/Amazon
    If you want perks - Google/FB
    If you want low stress - Google
    If you want career growth - FB/Amazon
    If you want prestige - Google/FB/Amazon

    Did you negotiate? Could you update?
    Numbers post negotiation might look very different. I wouldn't compare offers base on first numbers.
