Which is better option for me as a new grad software engineer? Paypal in San Jose or Amazon in Austin.

I interned at Paypal and really liked the work culture and my manager was really good.

Paypal: $120,000 (base) + $15000(sign on) + $30000(RSU: 1/3 each year)
TC Amazon: $112,000 (base) + $26000(sign on) + $80000(vests over 5 years)

    Ask yourself why Amazon backloads 80% of their RSUs so you donโ€™t vest until years three and four. Answer? Because they know half their new hires will burn out and leave.
