      Compensation might be better at Twitter? Here its like a contract and works well for r years, beyond that its shit.

      Other than that I am just looking for a change now, could look within Amazon but I thought experiencing different cultures would help me as an engineer

      My teammate went to twitter, he is liking it there. But I would say Amazon as well as twitter are too big to generalize though I agree that sometimes culture is contagious thing. Your best bet is to get to know more about the team you expecting to join then be it internal transfer or at twitter.

    I personally would. Nothing wrong with Amazon, but I've been happier since I moved to Twitter. Plenty of interesting work I've been able to lead, and they seem to train the managers to keep ICs happy because mine seems pretty invested in my growth.

      Working for amzn is slavery. All the RSUs will vest in the 3rd and 4th year. They will crush your soul in the first 2 years so that you don’t stay for the stock to vest. Good luck

    Current TC and offer from Twitter would help us decide

    Moved from Amazon to Twitter and loving it. Like someone said above, better comp, better culture, better responsibility, better managers and yes awesome food :). Every case is different though. Depends what's your current situation in Amazon is and what twitter is offering you.
