Tough cuz I don’t know you or where you actually want to live. Amazon Seattle is very big4 like, maybe worse. But it looks great on the resume. With that salary though you’ll have the best quality of life compared to what you get in Seattle , Bay Area and NY metro. I’m from Seattle and here now actually , live in NYC currently as a reference. Sounds like you wanna be close to family , so maybe ask Amazon to transfer you to nyc. Pay should go up.

Overall WA like TX has no state income tax and it’s expensive, but I know Seattle is the cheaper of the 3 cities.

Go to NJ if you value seeing friends and family and look at work as a job and not your life. Go to CA for money, but know that COL is going to burn that money right up. Avoid Amazon if you're looking for WLB.

(Continued) 2. Amazon, Seattle, WA: Base - 100K, TC: 140K. Around 25 RSUs vesting over a period of 4 years, year 1 sign on bonus of 37K plus relocation assistance. Location is way too far from my family and friends. Have heard tech is overworked and has bad wlb, unsure of Internal audit and IT audit teams 3. VISA , Foster City, CA: Base - 135K. Relocation assistance provided. Flexible team, pretty good benefits. As I have never lived in these cities, I find it very hard to make the pros and cons. Any insights would help.
