Hi,

What is the equivalent of L7 Amazon at Google?

Also what is the process for switching roles—groups or functions at Google. I know that Amazon does not have a min time in role requirement and is fairly flexible within non engineering functions. How does this compare w Google?

Thanks!

    Almost all L6+ from Amazon I knew who joined Google hated it and left after one year.

    IMO Amazon L5 -> Google L4 + low end of L5.
    Amazon L6 -> Google L5 + low end of L6
    Amazon L7 -> Google L6 + some_from_L7 (at this point I am not sure where the overlap ends as I don't have enough data points).

    Is l7 principal? There are lot of overlapping levels so depending on situation it can be 5 6 or 7 .. likely 6
