Was an intern at Amazon, and got offer from Microsoft. Can’t decide between them.

    No big difference for sure. Whoever thinks there is a big difference is just drinking their own company’s kool aid.

      What about AWS vs Microsoft?

      Working in AWS more likely to give you marketable knowledge — but it’s not because it looks better on resume.

      Good engineers graduate from azure are also hot in market.

    People are hurting for good engineers. Any top 20 company on your resume will likely yield you an interview, at which point your experience and leetcodability is all that matters.

    Maybe if you work at FB you will get a higher initial offer than if you worked at IBM, but you’ll likely get interview opportunities regardless.

    Long story short, nobody cares where as long as you’re doing work that translates well to recruiters’ targeted positions.

    Now if you pull out your laminated resume at the bar to impress the ladies, then obviously Amazon.

    Team > company imo in terms of what you learn. More likely to get into a slow af team (innovation wise) at microsoft imo but they both have plenty of great SDE positions.

    Microsoft as it has more alphabets in it's name.

    Oracle Eng

    Not CTO
    Depends on org. Azure or AWS more valuable than other orgs in either companies.
