I am a new grad from top 30 cs schools in US. I currently have 2 offers from Amazon AWS and Apple. Would love to hear your insights.
Tech: Python, Ruby, bash, CI CD pipelines mainly jenkins
Pay: 140/110/20 - base/stockworth/joining in thousands
Role: SDE 1, team specific AWS security team.
Tech: Java, Linux, basic networking and security
Role wise I like Amazon as it is a dev role. Giving up roughly 20 k per year (effectively it would be 10k due to location and additional tax expenses) and letting Apple go away do I miss something ? no idea about work life balance and some other things.
In terms of money both offers are quite similar when taking location into consideration.
