    Did Uber increase base for L4?

      I think it’s because of IPO, they used to be RSU heavy, now focus on base

      Yeah, this was L5 base pre IPO.

    I would go for U - better WLB and higher TC. Would only consider F if TC was significantly higher.

    FB will always be around, I’ll suggest join Uber, as also their share price is low so you’ll get good number of shares, if things doesn’t improve at Uber then you can move to FB or other company after getting your I-140 which takes around 1 to 1.5 year

    @OP definitely choose Uber. High TC plus WLB is definitely good here compared to FB.

    Facebook for sure. Uber won’t be around in 2 years.

    Did they promise that they’d file a green card for you right away? Do you have h1b?

      OP
      I have an H1b, got it last year, so I have almost 5 years after counting renewal, and both companies told me they would file one for me in the first few months.

      Even Amazon is filing one but I don’t want to stay here for next 2 years to get my i140.

      I would have preferred to go to uber and file my green card there. But I am not sure about the company performance in the next few years based on how much cash they are burning.
