This is a question of Big Blue vs Big Multi Colors. Man vs Algorithms. Both companies have a lot to offer. 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.
