Looking for a good career move from good growth prospective, RSUs and a decent wlb.
1) Any suggestions which will be better move to Seattle area. Moving from SF. Both are in Redmomd Bellevue area.

2) Also do I need to negotiate MS offer further.
Also any roam for negotiations for SF.

3) How is SF doing now, is it good time to join. Mostly will be some data pipeline work.

4) have I140 approved, which will process faster GC?

5) Please suggest if it is a good move from Expe. Making net around 190K total a year at Expe.

6) also does SF gives refresher at each year and what is max 401K match.

    Salesforce has good WLB. Refreshers are given to top 20-50%, depending on your org. It is doing really well and I think it’s a good enough time to join. ESPP, Education reimbursements are great.

      Seems like a high offer to me. Maybe the stocks/sign-on part?

      Btw - SFDC also has FTO policy for SMTS and above levels.

    Salesforce for wlb
    Microsoft for good learning

    Being at HQ has its own advantage.

      Does MS give refreshers, also what is bonus % max. How is Azure compute to get any good visibility for career growth? Should I negotiate on any?

    With 9 yoe, you could get a senior software engineer position at Tableau for 350-400 TC. Base is about the same, but much more RSU

      I think MS we have to wait for 1 year to start GC process, heard feedback GC is slow in MS for transfer.

    It’s an OK offer. You how bump the salary too much but you can get more stock
