LinkedIn Enterprise Productivity vs. Amazon EC2

I have about 5 yoe. Both positions are in the bay area. TC-wise, both are offering close to 300k but Amazon is offering a bit more. The orgs are in the title. The LinkedIn team is internally-focused while the Amazon team delivers customer-facing features. Personally I find the Amazon team to be more exciting and a great learning opportunity, but I keep hearing bad things about Amazon culture and terrible WLB in EC2. Which offer would you choose?

    1. Better brand
    2. Working on internal tools isn't great for long term career growth.
    3. Pay is better.

    WLB not that great but depends on team. You should research more about the teams culture

    If I were you I would have chosen Amazon because after I wouldn't compromise on my long term career. If you don't blike Amazon WLB, you can always jump the ship in an year.

    Both teams seem to be widely disparate... Did you find out what they do and what their team culture is like?

      The specific teams are like what I mentioned in the post, one focused on serving internal engineers while one targeting external customers.
