Both roles are based in Seattle
FB TC: 210K
Amazon TC : 170K

Amazon Pros: Job Security
Cons: Lower level (L4) and lower TC

FB Pros: 85% chances of getting E4 offer at the end of the year
Cons: Just a 1 year program, kind of like a 1 year internship

I am currently on F1 OPT, so the job security is a crucial factor

  • I’d take the FB one in a heartbeat. Even if it doesn’t work out, it’s a much more exclusive name to have on your resume.

    TC and work wise both FB wins it seems. Why would you consider Amazon in this case?

      No, you won't. Will have to pass it again. If that was easy for you, don't count, otherwise go to FB

    • Amazon is pretty easy to get an offer from, FB is not. If the FB thing doesn’t work out you can always still go to Amazon, and the opposite is not true.

    Why doesn’t FB offer you a full-time job? No job is secure unless you pass the H1B lottery.
