Have already been rejected by Linkedin, Google, Facebook, Uber. So pretty much done with the interviews for this year

Need suggestions in terms of which one to choose and why

my criteria would be
- better future TC growth
- good or Ok wlb, not stressful
- better tech growth, so jumping to Google, Facebook in few years shouldn’t be difficult for senior swe positions

Appreciate any pointers
thanks in advance!

    Apple. Most difficult to get into. Best WLB of those listed.

    Already mentioned: Twitter is trash 🚮

      Second that: Apple is hard to get into, which should be factored into the vote/decision.

    Go with Apple if you believe privacy matters. Pick Twitter if you want to further the human races ability to stir up toxic shit storms online. Choose Amazon if you hate end users

      Lol. Amazon hates end users? Apple loves them thats why they sell them the same overpriced sh!t year over year

      Amazon UI is bad, both in AWS and the Amazon store. Can't ever find anything except low quality foreign manufactured knock offs with fake reviews

      That I agree with. The point is that Amazon is not alone in screwing customers

    Apple :) refreshers should be able to make it up. No refresh at Twitter and Amazon imo

      You will receive 50k to 100k RSU per year if your performance is on par.I think Twitter should have refresher as well right?.
