      Would it? I heard its slow at google. Amazon is a learning workshop. Work hard but learn more.

    Go to Amazon, raise your bar, then go to Google after 2 years. If you got Google now, you’d get it later.

      This is so not true. Of all the companies where the likelihood of getting an offer from the same company a subsequent time is low, google’s is the lowest

    Have you maxed out negotiating with Google? I would personally rather end up at Google rather than Amazon, but their offer is barely above your current TC (not counting stock appreciation).

      Yes, but have you negotiated at all?
