I will be receiving an offer from Amazon Lab 126 (Sunnyvale) for an L4 Android engineer. I have 3 years of experience.

My current salary is 130k.

I am working to get a competing offer from other places I'm also interviewing, but not yet...

But I already told the recruiter I would rather stop interviewing and go with Amazon if the offer is great.

With that said, what kind of TC should I expect and how much should I ask for ??

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from lab126. Overall lab is bad but you are probably going to be part of fireos org which is known to be an extra miserable org.

      FireOS sucks, but you can transfer out anytime and go to AWS or Alexa

      Alexa is better than FireOs??

      FireOS org is on a decline, all the good and ambitious folks are moving on or have already moved on. Anything is better than FireOS!

    L4 Would Be Max ~170k TC, base is capped at 130k for L4 and remaining would be made up of a mix of bonus and RSU. 1st 2 years are joining bonus heavy with stock vesting schedule at 5,15,40,40

      Thank you for the answer. I've read TC's of around 180-200tc. Are these extremely high and unrealistic? Or should I ask for this high ?

      They all factor in stock appreciation. Ask recruiter the pay range and shoot for the highest number.

      Besides L4 is an entry level position, I doubt they’ll negotiate much. Many times it’s a take it or leave it offer

      I don’t think they can go much more than 170k, ask 180k and if it’s out of range they’ll tell you it’s not possible and you can ask what’s the highest they can do and negotiate

    Fireos offers are typically low ball and down leveled compared to other orgs. Plus they will make you work like crazy with promotion carrot. The Management is a joke full of bozos top down.
