Amazon Seattle vs Two Sigma NYC

Had an onsite at both these companies in different locations.

Expecting an offer from both.

Yoe: 2
Current Tc: 120k
Current Location: NYC

I wanted to avoid relocating since I am pretty comfortable with NYC and all other cities are alien places to me.

But considering an opportunity like Amazon I am still in dilemma as to relocation is worth it or grabbing a NYC offer is better?

Any experts who have ever faced a similar situation please guide!

    How is this even a question? TS is leaps and bounds above Amazon in every way.

    Don't count your eggs before they hatch or something. But I'd choose Two Sigma if you do get both

    WLB, comp, and culture will likely be better at TS.

    Don’t move from Nyc to Seattle! If you love the size of Nyc, you will get bored in Seattle unless you love the outdoors. It is easy to transfer back to Nyc with Amazon, but you’ll probably need to spend a year in Seattle first (lease / etc).

      This. I'd only rate Seattle over NYC if you are obsessed with hiking, have a spouse/fiancee, and really want to retire a bit earlier.

    Would not be thinking about this until you have all of the offers
