    Microsoft has the highest TC? Huh must be a new grad offer because if it's an industry hire, Amazon would beat out Microsoft at every level

      We have perf stock not cash, why would you include one and not the other? And yeah the new grad offers can be higher but that's about it.

      And sure if you have a family and a ton of kids, $10k isn't quite the value of the benefits but okay. And WLB is team dependent.

      Simple, perf stock is not counted on initial tc since it's not vested in the same year it's granted. Also Amazon doesn't have any perf stock for the first year and you know it

    Eng residency is L2? Also when you convert to full time you always get the lowest offer?

    Assuming we have a bad brand name, are you planning on trying to work on improving it if you come here or is it just about tc? If it's just tc, gtfo - we dont need more jackasses like you.

    Lots of my new grad friends join msft because of the outstanding new grad offer. Why brand bothers you? All three jobs will open you opportunities to interview with any tech company on the planet when you want to move in the future

  • I am curious, considering he got these offers, why didn't he just apply for the new grad role @ Google instead of the eng residency?
