Amazon PM-T and PM

Jul 11, 2018 13 Comments

At Amazon:

1. Is the pay range for a Product Manager (PM) and a Technical Product Manager (PM-T) at the same level, e.g. L6, different? If so, by how much?

2. Are there particular pros/cons with being one or the other?

——
Trying to decide if I should interview for a PM role or wait for a possible PM-T opening match.

Appreciate your response Amazonians!

      Thanks! Any reason beside pay? Also, any idea how much the pay difference is (%)?

      Diff is significant. Around 15-20% I think.

      There are more demand for PM-T, in case you want to transfer internally later.

      I meant the salary range is equal not the jobs.

      Even the salary range is not. TPM is equal to program or project manager.
