    Im an SDE II in Austin, TX. Base $159K, TC=$225K. I think the bands are a little lower than the Bay Area, but not by much. Austin pays well, and after adjusting for COL, state taxes, etc, you will definitely have a higher pay than in the Bay.

    I don’t know the number but it will go down for sure. I know that if you relocate to NYC it will go up by 20%

      Is it difficult to relocate to NYC in Amazon?

      What is the process like?

      You find the open position in internal job site, talk to HM, get an offer and give middle finger to your current manager and relocate

      How does the new manager determine if they want you on their team? Are there interviews involved? How does that work?

      What if I just relocated to Seattle a year prior with their relocation money?

      It depends on team but mostly there will be an interview, two rounds usually

    I have a friend who transferred from Irvine, CA to Austin, and his salary did not decrease at all.

    You'll keep your salary. It won't change. Bands... Not so sure
