Hi,

I received an L4 AS offer from amazon. The position is in seattle. The breakdown is as follows:-
Base - 150K
Bonus - 58K(year-1)/42K(year-2)
RSU- 125K.

I have a masters in ML from a decent school and 2 yoe in India before masters. Is this a good offer?

//reposting since didn't get a lot of replies last time.

      Thanks for sharing the website. I did check it out. However, most of the data here is for SDE positions and almost nothing for AS(Applied scientist). Hence my question here.

      Can negotiate on all fronts but unlikely they will be change your base much because base is capped at 160k in Seattle. RSU and Y1/Y2 bonus could change maybe. How much is startup offering you? Considering you don't have PhD and got AS offer, I would take it. PS: I am AS L5.

      Thanks for your reply. Base for the startup is 165K. joining is 30K. There are some RSUs but its not public so I am not factoring that.

      You can't negotiate much on startup salary.

      Is it possible to negotiate and if yes which components and by how much? I have an offer from a startup with higher base but it is based in the bay.

      You can negotiate on all fronts (base, signon and RSUs...in your case, I think they will just give more bonus to match the other offers TC)

  • Really good offer, max for base is $160k so you are really close to max base

    Most companies do not consider experience from India so this is basically a new grad offer and as such is an extremely good offer for Seattle or Amazon.
