I have got an offer from Amazon sde1 and sde 2 from Microsoft and Flipkart with 4yrs experience. Design was good but i did not perform in one round. Shall i go to Amazon with sde 1 as they are growing really fast and will eat every other company in coming time. What are chances of getting promoted to sde 2 inside.
Amazon base 16 lpa
Flipkart base 27 lpa
Microsoft base 23 lpa
Current base 15 lpa

    Amazon sde 2 starting is 24L base. I think it's better if you go to Microsoft/Flipkart and then switch. Amazon pays laterals much better compared to internal promotion

    Greedy approach says take Flipkart. If you are good you will get Sde2 at Amazon in a year

      Join as an externally hired SDE 2. There is big pay gap between newly promoted and externally hired SDE'S atleast for 2 years.

      What team at msft and Amazon ? Msft has some interesting projects too I believe.
      You must have asked manager during the interview what the team is working on. Where do you see more growth ?

      Yes, very stupid processes and work. Tip: I work in it but not in India. I collaborate with them.

    No. Internal promotion is usually cheap. Try them next year, they won’t disappear
