No, you should go Amazon because if the stock options.

No one knows how long you will last at Amazon and the base is too low in comparison to KPMG’s to justify going with Amazon on account of RSUs. Also, I don’t recall the last time I paid my bills with prestige. :)

That's.....a pretty low amazon offer. Did you try negotiating? You are getting like 1 share after the first year

What did you decide? Expecting an L5 offer next week. Were you able to negotiate with Amazon?

Hi ladies! Looking to get creative & brainstorm a bit. 31 y/o female in NYC - most of my friends moved out of the city due to the pandemic. Not many are around to hang with (socially distanced of course). I tried hitting up some of my guy friends and they are always down to hang out but... I always have to make sure they remember it's platonic.  Any ideas on how to make female friends during this time? I'm like...is there an app for that? I am getting Zoom video catch up fatigue.
