      ? Top of L5 SDE band is 270k. So official L6 SDE band must start around 280k. External offers will always be top part of band though.

      Top of band L6 is 360, L5 at google can upto 450k in Bay Area.

      The 450 number is top 1% of reported numbers. In other words, exceptions. That's why I was comparing top of band at Amazon (360k sounds about right for SDE) to top 10% at Google (385k).

      According to comp.fyi, L5 medium is 360k. That's more accurate to the TCs I'm hearing currently. Outliers are at 500k. Amazon L6 medium is around 320k.

      Haha, Google's internal numbers are also self reported. You thought it comes from payroll?

      Ultimate post says medium for L5 is 330. Comp.fyi is 360. The former is from March. Comp.fyi is current.

      So we can agree - Median numbers are within about 10% of each other. Bands are within about 10-15% of each other. Individual results may vary. External offers are always better than promo numbers. And if you want the big bucks, you need competing offers.

      Are we comparing L6 Amazon to L5 Google here?

      I can tell you for sure that top of l6 band at amazon is not 360, my compensation is way over 400k.I really dont think that google or fb will pay me more than that as I have friends there at l5 and l6 and they are making less than this.Not everyone reports the truth on such compensation sheets.

      Are you saying people are under reporting their TC?

    These comps don’t apply to Bay Area. Seems like Seattle folks are on a different band. I have visibility into offers that are rolled out to L5, L6 and it’s 75-80% of top compensation for Google and Facebook.

      So you joined as L3 in Google from a SDE2 at Amazon?

      I totally agree with bababobo. Bay Area is a different ball game. Got both google and amazon offer, google has not impressed me yet.

      Comp.fyi. Amazon is not close to f/g L3-7.

      Nice try though.

      You are obsessed about getting underpaid at amazon because you worked for a shitty team, could not get into special projects that command a higher pay or ask for more pay for your skills and jumped ship for a cheap 30% hike and are on blind constantly trying to justify your kool-aid. Get a life brother! 🤣🤣

      @topCon There was a phone tool icon at Amazon "ex-Google". You can look at people who have that icon (Assuming most people will showcase that, since it's Google). Most of those were not engineers. Very few SWEs.

      Haha, that's pretty cool.

      @bababobo, the rest of your team came from Netflix and FB? Of course they did ;)

    The sheet is accurate.

    Source:
    ex-Amazonian and 7 friends who still work there

    People inflate their TC a lot on blind.

    Promotion to bottom of the band is incredibly dumb. I’ll just leave to a new company to make more money! Ridiculous process.

      That's exactly what I did 😂😂

      Amazon might be a good company to invest, but certainly not good to work for.

      I just got an offer from Google and another company and Amazon beat it to keep me after promo. Google doesn't raise your comp to high end of new band after promo either you know and I often hear internally promoted folks complain that they make quite a bit less than external hires at the same level.

    This is right on. Amazon does pay less than fb or Google.
