If one wants to target $700k TC as Product person which companies and what level/grade would that be?

What about product marketing ? Or partner tech manager ? Which grade/company?

It seems for manager of engineers this TC is easily reachable at Netflix, Google, FB, Amazon etc. What about non engineering roles ?

      You have to be director level to get 700k TC for engineering?

      Of coarse, 700k is really high. You probably got your expectations from all the ppl bragging about paper money here (or the stock triples and now they make triple salary).

      You can be at 700K total comp as a exceeding L7 at Google, even without any stock appreciation.

      So after 10 years as an exceptional engineer at the #1 tech company... This is an exceedingly rare accomplishment, probably easier to VP at a small to midsized company?

    • Google prcntprblm
      Yeah, it's tough to get to L7. L7 SWEs have had major accomplishments. L7 managers have large teams that have delivered on big things -- or were VPs at smaller companies.

      L8 is director correct? L7 is principal?

      L8 is director on mgr ladder. Think principal is L8 on tech ladder but not sure. Can never remember the actual titles as no one uses them internally.

    OP
    Director level at FAANG or other companies ? Director at other companies outside of FAANG/webscale cap out at $350-400k.

    VP at other companies could touch 600-700k. VP at FAANG are probably $1M+

    You can do it as director at amazon (getting a little lucky with stock appreciation. Average is probably more around 500k).

      Also can confirm VP of product at Amazon is likely $1M+

      If Director avg is 500K, what is the range for level below? Seems to be a wide range of experience levels at the L7 PPM level, at least within AWS. I would think upper end of L7 would cross into 600k.

    Yeah basically Director or VP grade. Nobody is making 700k+ a year unless they're ultra high level or got lucky with pre-IPO stock.
