    Amazon L7 is a BIG deal. FB E6 isn't as big a deal in comparison

      Yeah. 5.5 yoe L7 Amazon would be insane.

      I guess I echo the sentiment of the other comment in that L7 at Amazon is a "big deal". You'll get lots of responsibility and get to make a lot of decisions

    E6 will be more money.

    L7 you will have more scope and impact.

      I agree with this. Will see.

      FB refreshers will be the difference. The initial offers will match, but FB will be more over time.

      That's a good point.

      At amazon you will still be making 500k though, so money won't matter as much at that point.

      E6 represents about top 8% at FB. At Amazon L7 is top 1%. I work at amazon and liked it alot; I tried to go back and would have if I got an L7 offer. Just FYI if it helps.

    I may be wrong but I feel like Amazon offers more variety in the type of teams you could transfer to and really have an impact in orgs as an L7.

    Either that, or I'm wrong and L7s hate their lives like L4s

      Growing up poor I dreamed of breaking 6 figures. But L7s making over a quarter mil is laughable... blows my mind.

      I thought L7s make at least double that.

      I was quoting nontech, tech makes a lot more. That's why I'm happy to break 6 figures 3 years out of college. I'm not rich but not too shabby for a liberal arts degree. I understand how fortunate I am which is why this app bugs me sometimes. People sometimes seem ungrateful towards their careers and comp.

    For ML role I would choose Amazon, bcoz I don't trust FB with data and their practices.
