Is it wise to join Uber from Amazon as SDE in India?

I am working in Amazon India for long time now and got an offer with 56% hike over TC. Uber as a company is making tons of losses. Will it be wise if I go ahead with my decision to join Uber in terms of TC? I don't have path to promotion to next level in Amazon and it might take 2-3 years more. Same will be true in Uber.
Need advice from Blinders. :) I like Amazon a lot in terms of culture, work etc. But feel like I am underpaid here as compared to my peers in my org.

Current TC : 44 LPA.
YOE : 6 years

    No, stay at Amazon. Uber is sinking ship. Refer me to that job at Uber.

      But it's pointless to go to US with a family leaving a good salary in India, right ?
      even more if your wife is working

      Yeah after completing 2 years in Uber, one can go to SF or Amsterdam if needed. But their policy keep on changing, so it's not certain. :)

    Move. Change companies again in a couple of years if the situation at uber seems bad at the time.

      Uber stock some more hit , say another 20% dip

      OP
      Doesn't matter. :) Now they don't give stock units in advance. They fix the amount say 12 Lakhs INR to be allocated for stocks and on the day of vesting, whatever number of stocks fix in that amount, they will allocate that many stocks.
      So if Uber stays for next 4-5 years, it's a nice offer. :)

      Isn't this bad ?
      For a good growth company your initial grant has a lot of value when your are into your 3rd or 4th year

      Rather why can't they simply pay cash

    Do you mind sharing the breakdown? Looks like a high end offer for L4.

    Go to Uber. You can always go back to Amazon if you don't like it over there.
