    Amazon. Hands down. I posted and deleted my post, but the culture at Microsoft is weird to me and many commented about the passive aggressive culture and lack of true transparency and empathy. The words are thrown around but the execution and followup are lacking.

      Regarding culture it’s vary from org to org and it’s applicable in any company, even at Amazon.

    If it’s AWS or MSFT WDG (Windows) — go to Amazon. For any other team, its same.

    Amazon if you have 3yrs under belt. You will learn much more.

    Also it depends on team and work you would be doing in each company. Don’t decide based on Brand only. Think brand as your team and work.

    Each company has values in their own way.

      why 3 years as the deciding factor? suppose I have 2 years does that mean I should stay at microsoft longer?

      Years of experience generally implies that you’re at junior level and got capacity/zeal to work more than 40hrs a week since you would have less commitments in life and want to grow fast.

    Had same decision last year. Went with Amazon because of team and location. I don’t regret, but I’m sure others have made the opposite decision and feel the same way.
