# Microsoft pays the highest TC

Microsoft manoi đź¤Ż

If you take your TC and divide it by the average number of hours worked then Microsoft pays the highest TC. Amazon is still bottom tier and Facebook also bottom tier. Google is mid-top tier.

Technically, unemployment benefits and social security pays the highest TC, using this postâ€™s definition

It's not actually 0 though. Generally you would have to fill out forms or go to the govermnent office or something which would take a non zero amount of time .

Ok let's say it takes about 4-5 hours to get the unemployment benefits. Unemployment benefits in most states is \$450.
\$450/5 = \$90/hour TC
My TC \$150K/715 = \$210/hour TC
Looks like zucc and tendies can't do math.

Since weâ€™re just throwing numbers around, surely the gifted software engineers of blind can do the work to claim unemployment in just one hour, which means theyâ€™re making \$450/hr. Checkmate Microsoft.

Doesn't matter if gifted or not. You won't get your unemployment benefits process finished in 1 hour no matter what. 4-5 is already generous.

I bet they can get it down to a number < 1. Doing it in half an hour, doubles TC by this logic

Sure.
Number of hours worked at MS: minimal = highest TC. This is exceptionally true.

You made a post about TC without including your own. A special place in the innermost circle of Hell awaits.

Hourly TC: \$210/hour

Unfortunately, that's good, but not great. Bored Indian housewives make more than that by clicking on random stuff on the internet. My advice would be to start leetcoding, and soon.

Lol, maybe outside of Azure. Within some pockets of Azure, the hourly rate is less than that of Intel.

The problem with this calculation is that you cannot spend the hours you donâ€™t work with money you donâ€™t have .....
