I am considering joining Amazon in the Bay Area, either A9 or AWS. How much refresher stock does one get on being promoted from SDE 1 to SDE 2? How much has it been in the last 3-4 years?

    Fucking hate “refresher” verbiage. Continuing to get paid is not “refreshing”. Not OPs fault, just hate hearing it, like people getting “PIP’d” which isn’t a thing that happens.

    Stock has been growing so quickly that people are not getting new stock at promo. Your new TCT will be $172k or so, tour base will be around $130k. So 42k in stock. With the stock growing like it has, most are over target once base is bumped, some before.

      OP
      Completely understand. Used the term because that’s what everyone uses. To clarify target comp in sfo is 172k?

      I don’t know Bay ranges, so if Boss😎 does go with that.
