Facebook vs Microsoft: Levels and Salary Comparison 2019

(Last Updated On: June 15, 2019)

You may be asking yourself – Work for Big Blue or the Big MSFT (What is Microsoft’s color again?). Changing jobs is actually a big deal especially if it might involve moving family, changing friends and neighbors to an area totally alien to you. Hence its totally understandable if you want to make this as profitable as possible for you and make sure you work in a good company.

To achieve this and bearing in mind the cost of uprooting your life from a location, most tech companies offer a signing accompanied bonus alongside paying for you to move. This is highly encouraging especially for a first time mover.

It is also very important to find out the if the salary you will be receiving at your new place of work, matches to that of your old place of work.
