    Having Amazon on resume will attract future recruiters to your profile more than Salesforce or cruise.

    Salesforce is for retirement. As a fresher Amazon will take you places and get you the experience recognition you need to progress

    Is cruise rsus or options? Thought it was options of private Cruise stock.

      no you can't since we're not public yet. It's still important to emphasize the difference between options and RSUs. Options have an exercise price and cost money to exercise which in the worst case you will loose. RSUs are 100% free (besides tax on liquidation).

    I think you should also ask yourself which one will give you the opportunity to learn the most...
