That may depend on the rest of your network. You need to stay with one vendor on your network to avoid confusion and keep a standard. I would say go with Cisco as command syntax will stay the same if your network is mostly Cisco.

3850 is superior every day of the week if you want core network-level features, however it has no PoE and 10G modules are optional.

For me though that wouldn't stop me buying it, especially the lack of PoE.  I wouldn't expect a core switch to offer PoE anyway.
