Amazon - Negotiate to get Principal PM from Sr.PM
I have been offered a Sr.PM-T role at Amazon Seattle. This is in the last mile technology group which I understand is one of the key focus areas for Amazon and is experiencing rapid growth and investment. Couple of questions
- Can I negotiate to get a Principal PM role? (The original job posting shared with me was for Principal PM but later the same link started showing that it was a Sr.PM-T role)
- How many years can it take to get promoted to a Principal if I join as a L6? If I come in at the higher end of a L6, does that mean I can make L7 within 2 years?
- Amazon employees working in the last mile delivery group, is this an exciting space within the company to be in?
This is an important decision for me and if you want to troll or have something snarky to say, please don’t bother responding.
Haven’t received the final offer yet - will update TC once I do.
YOE: 10 ( various roles across Software Eng, Data Science, PM and Consulting)
Update: 5 years at a FANG - 3 yrs as a Data Architect and 2 as PM, 3 years at startups before that
