I wasn't told I was being interviewed for SDE1 role at the time of interview. I assumed all along that it was for SDE2 considering my YOE (3yrs before Masters outside USA). I have asked for reevaluation of offer considering I have a competing offer, but I doubt they will raise the role or numbers significantly.
Current YOE- 3+ after Masters
Which one should I consider?
Amazon brand will anyday look good on the resume, but is it worth going for a lower TC/role for a highly probable WLB screw up?
- Cisco SE 4 is Grade 10 which breaks down as follows:
So his offer is not far off
- Cisco Meraki2Another way to think is, offer from cisco looks high but stock from amazon has potential to dubble in coming yrs where as cisco, very less probability! So pick amazon... if u do well in 1-2 yrs u will be sde2
- Juniper KekeWhoAmazon for new tech work, product and career. If your early in your career and age/life (mean without kids etc), WLB would be a secondary preference for me.
Cisco brand is like a death trap (plus your not in a networking role or product which means could be sacked when operations are tightened). It may become a challenge on the next job hunt.
Negotiate if you got room and see of one appeals more for you (unless this is final).
