Both positions are in Seattle. Expedia has good WLB. Azure compute definitely has oncall duties, not sure about the WLB there.

    Are you SDE1?

    I think I would take MSFT for now, your resume would be very solid with Amazon and MSFT on it.

    What about other benefits? 401k and everything else.

      Yes. I am sde1. Benefits at msft are way better than amazon. Generous time off, 3 weeks pto+ 12 public holidays + 2 personal days + 2 weeks of sick days. 401k is also excellent, 9500/yr matching. You don’t need to wait for 3 yrs to vest. Free parking, free beverages. Health insurance is also good.

    Expedia moving to Seattle, incase that’s a factor for you. Otherwise, Microsoft hands down comp is looking better, Compute is decent.
