Hi All, I recently interviewed at Amazon and Google for software engineer and passed both interviews. I have an offer on the table from Amazon but with Google I am officially in team matching and my recruiter tells me that the queue is pretty backed up now and it can take a long time. My question is should I take the Amazon offer now or decline Amazon and hold out for Google? I have heard that Google has better wlb/benefits. But I'm scared to decline Amazon without a guaranteed job offer.

Accept Amazon and then renege/leave if Google comes through

It would only burn bridges for a short while heh, 6 months down the line you’d have 6 months experience with google and Amazon would love to steal you back regardless of that history.

Always tell your recruiters when you have another offer pending or in hand. They love it when you do, so that they don't look bad by failing to land you. If the company is serious enough about you, they'll make the remaining interviews happen.

That said, does one or the other company want you to relocate to somewhere you don't want to / can't afford to live?

You could take a project-oriented approach to jobs, working one at Amazon until done or until you don't like the projects offered to you.
