MS said they have additional cash bonus that goes as high as 30% but I am assuming realistically it would be around 10-12%. They also have annual stock grant which can go as high as 40k, not sure what should be realistic assumption on this.
So MS is saying TC should be 280k.
- How realistic is the assumption from MS recruiter that my TC would 280 after considering annual cash bonus and stock bonus.
- If above is true, will amazon match MS offer? If yes, I am inclined towards Amazon more as I liked team and work I would do in that team. If yes, Amazon will mostly add more cash bonus or stock?
- Which company is better to join if I want to move up the ladder faster.
Amazon you'll work 70-80 hours a week.
MS vest is 25% per year. Amzn vest is shite.
I think its a pretty easy choice lol.
