4.5 YOE Finance in Amazon, just turned L6. Salary bump sucks, what's better out there?
Joined Amazon as L4 Financial Analyst fresh from undergrad.
Been with the company about 4.5 years and just became L6 Sr. Financial Analyst.
The salary bump is very disappointing (only $18K), now TC $140K.
Averaging ~60-70hrs per week, worked on 50% weekend for the last 2.5 years, doing the work nobody want. After going through that and only getting $1K incremental per month, feels like a sucker.
Am I just an ungrateful person with unreasonable expectation? I strong believe there's a better opportunity out there (or at least better use of my time to get higher incremental $). Feels like need to pivot little bit in my career, would really appreciate any suggestions!
