Let's consider the following set:

* Amazon
* Google
* Facebook
* Apple
* Microsoft
* Netflix
* Airbnb

What are the companies not listed above that are better than the worst company listed above?

Criteria for determining better/worse:

* Opportunity for growth - 70%
* Salary and perks - 30%

I know, it's subjective. It's intended to be so.

      Maybe retail, but I consider AWS > than most of those companies.

    • Good point, I think the only companies I'd consider over AWS in that list are Dropbox and Uber.

      Why is AWS higher than Amazon's other ventures?

    Snap is better (pays more) than Apple, Microsoft, and amazon.

      Snap's comp is amazing. If you're a single guy working there in LA, you're at the top of the hierarchy.

      My friend does corp dev at Netflix in LA. His TC is around $500k and he's crushing it with the women. Netflix is definitely an attention getter.

      The problem with Snap is that their stock grant is like their product. Vanishes once it vests

    You missed the most important thing: culture

      Serious question: what defines culture?

      Are your coworkers and/or boss assholes?

      @Middlewest: you have to experience it to see it. Being at oracle probably doesn’t help you.

      Did Amazon for awhile. That’s a bunch of different behavior patterns, but plenty of similar threads if you know what to look for.

      Generally I think culture is heavily defined by how people handle disagreements, and especially how disagreements between people with power and people without power are treated.

      How many people are on corp Dev though?

    For non-tech roles (finance, corp dev, strategy, marketing) I would rank them as follows.

    Facebook
    Google
    Netflix
    AirBnB
    Apple
    Amazon
    Microsoft

    • Microsoft marketing/corp dev pays pretty well (bonus if you are a 65+), no? Also better exposure to enterprise scenarios at MS

      I thought about placing Microsoft ahead of Amazon, mainly due to Nadella's leadership and serious push towards the cloud. But I think Amazon as of now is more prestigious and offers slightly higher comp.

      OP
      @WAAC, how would you go about a rank with tech roles?
