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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
