      Levels.fyi is garbage. Look at how wrong it is for Google.

      Yes. The average comp numbers per-level for Google seems accurate.

      390 is where the band starts, but pretty much no PE is paid that little.

      Bottom of band is used to lowball promoted L6s and avoid giving them more RSUs. Same with Sr. Manager band. The idea seems to be to force us to go outside for other offers.

      I hope not. Just got promoted to PE and haven’t got my pcs yet. Director warned me he was having to fight HR on the budget.

    Can also confirm 390-590 in Seattle. In Bay area/nyc it's 450-700.

    Remember Amazon screws you over on equity compared to Google though. Backloaded and with appreciation assumed. Nowhere near the same refreshes as Google...

      Could you elaborate? I’m not sure what these terms mean

      Refreshes/refreshers are just stock grants with a vesting cycle. I fucking hate those terms.
      Amazon’s stock grants assume 15% YoY growth. And they are backloaded meaning you get more in years 3 and 4 than in 1 and 2.

    L7 is either a Principal Engineer or a manager. What position are you looking at?
