Hello All,

I got offers from Amazon and Oracle. I can not decide which one to choose.
Can you help?

Oracle offer:
Base: 130k
Signing bonus: 30k
Relocation: 10k
stock: 3000 RSU over 4 years
Location: New Hampshire
Work: All the work is on C and PL/SQL.

Amazon offer:
Base: 108k
Signing bonus: 24k
Relocation: 6k
stock: $75,000 over 4 years.
Location: Mostly Seattle.
Work: Yet to be determined.
Also, It looks that for new Grad amazon will not negotiate.

      It depends. The stocks are definitely negotiable.

      As written in the FAQ of offer packet, It says that offer is non-negotiable.

      It can say that all it wants. Doesn’t make it true.

      It is true. Amazon doesn't negotiate for new grads.

      When I was a new grad, I had an offer from amazon, fb, and LinkedIn. Amazon was clearly lower, but they still said they would not negotiate.

    Just take Oracle. After a year or two you can easily shift to your desired company with a much better tc.

    Honestly I would take Amazon even though Oracle TC is higher due to location and name brand. If possible get Amazon to match

    Oracle offer is way better. If Oracle work/domain looks interesting, go for it. Else: For Amazon, ask for the team name and negotiate. Everything is negotiable!

    That's just 138k tc at Amazon. Wow Amazon offers for fresh hires are super low. Unbelievable.

    Cost: New Hampshire (live like a king)

    Weather: Tie/Personal Preference (northeast winters are ass but summers are good, Seattle is cloudy/rainy and can be depressing)

    Location/Entertainment: Seattle (but NH is probably close to Boston which I'd a major city / has a well connected airport -- Europe is close and high speed rail will get you down to NY/Phil/DC).

    Networking: Seattle (but with whatever title you get, you could go anywhere).

    Work-life balance: Probably Oracle

    Work: No idea. I'm not technical
