I have friends at Apple.

It depends on what you want. I wouldn’t like the culture as much and with RSU, I make more.

Perks and wlb are better at Apple and it’s a less aggressive culture.

I worked at Amazon as an engineer for quite a few years before switching to Apple. Unfortunately it depends a lot on your team. The first team I was on with Amazon was fantastic for work life balance and culture. However, when I moved to a team in Austin it was terrible, which was my primary driver to look elsewhere.

Both paid very well compared to other offers, and Apple gave me a significant pay raise. Apple gives a lot more holidays, but a couple weeks less of PTO.

Amazon’s software org is much more organized and easier to navigate, but it seems like because of that the teams are much less willing to work together (all our information is on a wiki just read that). At Apple information is not readily available, but crossteam collaboration doesn’t feel like pulling teeth.

I’m all for honest conversation and I learn more from conversations with people I disagree with.

I can easily agree to disagree if there is logic in reasoning and the reasoning is consistent.

Selective and curated criticism and outrage though is running pretty rampant

Neither - they both make you work a lot and don’t pay a lot! Any other company outside of those two will work out better for you :)
