VMware offer (TC 180k) is in PA, basically a returning intern offer.
Amazon offer (TC 145k) in Seattle.

The culture at VMWare is great and I liked my team. Also the TC at amazon is definitely lower, and I wont be allocated a team till i accept the offer.

How do I go about rationalizing between the 2?

    Holy shit man 180k for entry in PA is amazing. I don’t think I’d even bother interviewing anywhere else but Google.

    Did you include signing for VMware in TC? Also make a poll

      What's it look like without signing bonus? Is VMware still higher salary for next year?

    +1 about Amazon. I'm having worsening mental health issues due to workplace stress and politics.

    Try negotiating with Amazon if you really wanna take thier offer. I would say VMware is a better choice now

    Avoid Amazon if you value your mental health.

    Clear VMware. A good team is only worth giving up on if the TC will be significantly higher and it’s not.
