I am L5 SDE at amazon. Working on promo doc for last one year. My manager changed last month and the new manager needs some more time before we can start working on promo doc again. He asked me to wait for 6 to 9 months. But I feel like it may not happen for another year.
I have 13 years of industry experience. 3 years at Amazon. I was leveled down as I was not coming from a FAANG company.
I feel L5 to L6 is tough at amazon in certain orgs.
Have been thinking of exploring external opportunity for a while.
Can I ask google to interview me for (T5)senior position?
Do I need to disclose my level at amazon while interviewing at google or facebook? Can I just pretend to be senior at amazon?
Best of luck 🤝
