- Hear Amazon Alexa actually has managed to have better work life balance over other teams like AWS/ retail
- No brainer...Go to Amazon if you don’t have young kids/family and can spend plenty of time in office.
Financially you will do much much better at Amazon in long run.
Also if got lucky, you will get to work with some really great engineers (not sarcastic).
- Salesforce is better WLB but stock refresh is rare at Salesforce
- Microsoft che84OPInfra team and TC around 300. Amazon Alexa and comp is 330k. Yes there is slight difference in comp but i am ok with it.
Interested to know how is the learning and growth opportunity in salesforce.
- L6 sdm in Amazon here and wlf is great. Also comp has gone up significantly because of stock vest. Like others say, it really depends on the team, but it's pretty easy to switch if you're in a bad team.
- I will suggest Amazon, at one point in my life I also had both the companies as option and I regret big time for choosing Salesforce. Amazon stock has tripled in 2.5 years and whereas Salesforce has not even doubled. Amazons growth is amazing, they have better rewards if you are a good performer and they have yearly RSU refresh. Salesforce on the other hand just have one advantage and that is you can do alright even being a slacker. You might come with a good salary in Salesforce but then increments become so hard here.
- Salesforce no doubt. If you hate wlb, no, I mean if you love working a lot, then join Amazon.
- FYI, wlb is a biggest myth. It all boils down to how much efficient you are. Some people can do the same work in 2 hrs and some take 2 dats for that. So it all depends on you. I have frnds in Amazon who never complained about not having wlb and they are earning a lot more than me. So I will prefer giving 7-8 hours a week for getting 50k more a year.
- Salesforce PNlK41You should also think about commute since the two are probably in SF and South Bay, respectively. Both companies have shuttles.
