    If you go to Amazon forget any raise for at least 3 years. Chances are you might not even get significant raise even after promotion

    Cisco hands down. Instead of TC, you should really be counting TC/HAW (hours actually worked) ratio to get the complete picture. And btw, that's a very good offer for g8.

      It's also possible that his friends will get PIPed left, right, and center. Anything's possible 😂

      My friends at Cisco say there are layoffs every year and that they use some weird proprietary programming language in some of the teams that is useless outside of Cisco.

    Go to Amazon which is a core software/internet company, you will encash that experience much better later than working on a fucking sales company like Cisco where engineering is shit and culture is dominated by incapable middle management

    Just watching out for you - Amazon has a hell of an upside. Cisco is on the downward trajectory.
