Amazon Applied Scientist/Research Scientist salary expecation
I am a research scientist at NV with 4-5 YOE in ML & AI research. I am going to get an offer from Alexa AI org at Cambridge, MA. The recruiter said I can chose either Research Scientist(RS) or Applied Scientist(AS) position since I qualify for both and the team really want me.
1. What is the diff between RS/AS at Amazon. I do want to actively work of Ml models but I also want to do my research & publish papers etc. Which one should I chose?
2. How much comp should I ask for?
3. I believe the level is going to be L5. Are there stock refreshers at this level?
Current TC: 190k (Santa Clara)
Moving to MA is not a problem since I am from MA.
