      I am assuming the numbers which should be the least I should negotiate in the worst case. When I see the numbers in Levels fyi, paysa.com the numbers are good and above than what I mentioned above, but not sure if they are same for my Oracle application developer role.

    Oracle devs are fake sdes, the offer is lower than the bottom 1% in comparison with other L5 Sdes. So its kinda hard to say if thats a good offer or not, maybe you can eventually grow out of oracle, do massive amt of leetcoding and learn new techs, your title at amazon can help you land a real sde job internally or outside, so as long as the offer is fair market value when compared to other oracle devs with similar capabilities as yours, I’d say go for it.

      True, oracle apps is more on IT support and back office application side. Moreover, traditional ERP developers are sort of cobol programmers back in 90s

      Ok.. I understand this role is not perceived as equivalent to rest of SDE roles. Indeed we deal with Oracle, Java, SOAP & REST protocols and SoA architecturjng etc. So would that not be very unfair calling them as old as COBOL and not even equal to lowest 1% salary category of SDE level 5?

      However, existing employees on these roles, can you shed some light on the numbers?

      Also this is for Oracle Application developer. Does that role plays a factor in getting appropriate numbers?
