From other thread, I noticed that many engineers got low balled even after promotion to L6. At the same time, Amazon pays relatively more to new hire SDE 2's/SDE 3's.
How many of you are in this boat? Is this new Amazon norm? Which org are you in ? How long have you been in Amazon?
5+ years in Amazon
Meanwhile new promotions are towards the lower end of the band (175k for SDE2, 240k for SDE3). It makes sense.
