Facebook E5 vs Amazon SDE3 vs Salesforce PMTS

May 25, 2019 40 Comments

I have the following offers
E5 from Facebook
SDE3 from Amazon
Principal MTS from Salesforce

Which ones would you suggest based on career growth, interesting work and culture and most importantly which is valued most of all the three ?

Update: These are from different locations. TC is more or less the same considering the cost of living. Nevertheless, here are the TC details:
Facebook, London - 110k base, 20k joining bonus in pounds and 400k stocks in USD

Amazon, Salesforce, India - around 12 million INR including base, variable / joining bonus and stocks

    Wait, let me digest that... are you really asking whether you should work in London or anywhere in India?
    Nice trolling.

    While you make a choice don't underestimate the importance of decent WLB. You don't wanna look again soon. Or have physical/ mental health issues.

      UK. Location rules here. QoL is going to be better over all.

      Definitely Facebook.

      At each of these places the team will play a significant role in your success. At FB you will get to choose your team. If you're good, your chances of being rewarded well are highest at FB.

    I would pick amazon assuming the team is decent. Be in India or in US if you are in tech. Lots of opportunities to switch jobs and grow as well.

    Brand is not as important as a good work/team.

    Just curious, what is your YOE?

    ~180k in London is a good salary but don’t expect to live a very lavish or luxurious life. You can afford to rent a 1-2 bedroom apartment in central London (~500-800sqft) for 2000-2500 pounds per month. Commuting is expensive - food is expensive - everything is expensive.

    12 million annually anywhere in India will get you a much better lifestyle.

    But all that said, you need to make the choice between India vs London. Money can buy only so much happiness - and India has its pros and cons that you need to take into consideration. So does London.

    I would pick London just for a great quality of life and future growth prospects.

    Facebook, London. That's really good pay for one of the best cities in the world. And it's not that far from India whenever you want to visit.

      SDE 3 at Amazon is higher level than fb L5. You could work at SDE 3 for a year or so and try for E6 at fb.
