I just got an offer for L5 Instock Manager at Amazon Seattle. I have YOE ~5.
Base: 94K
45K+34K Bonus
TC~ 142K
I feel the Amazon offer is low for Seattle life. Is there any room for negotiation?

I have another offer from a start up in Portland.
Base: 105K
Bonus: 10K + 8%Target Bonus
TC ~120K-125K

Need some advice on how I should proceed as I am still interviewing.

    Don’t see much scope for negotiation on the Amazon offer, maybe 2-3k on the base and 5-6 more stocks at best but I think the joining bonus is crazy,

    This is a solid offer to be honest.

      Hey thank you for your feedback. Quick question. Do I need to pay back the total signing bonus back to Amazon if I may leave the company before 2 years or if I am laid off for some reason?

      If you’re laid off you’ll pay back nothing. If you leave in the first year you’ll pay back a prorated amount. After that the installments are monthly, so nothing to worry about.

    That is a crazy sign-on bonus for an L5, non-tech role.
