    I would imagine there will be a growing amount of opportunity (and money) at VMware as carbon Black's security tech would be a new arena for them to build out

    CB in Hillsboro. Pay and work environment will be better, and CB innovation opportunity is just kicking off here so you'd have a lot more influence than on another MS team

    Is security analyst SWE?

    Trying not to be biased, but vmw pays more than msft across the board. You can def negotiate more stocks from both parties.

    Would it be insane for me to think that the 150k (Portland) & 135k (Redmond) offers were same when you take into account state taxes. So take home salary at month end is same as per ADP calculator. But now that VMware bumped the offer hope msft does too.

    As a Cb/ VMware employee currently, the tech Cb has is more advanced than MSFT and as a smaller company that can be more dynamic and focused in the security area you can have a more direct impact.

    On the other hand, MSFT is investing substantially more money into security so they can compete in the field which may allow the opportunity to work on more aspects of tools that are being built
