Heard from a friend that if you are over your comp target due to stock appreciation you don’t get any refreshers? True? If so, do you take a big pay cut after 4 yrs?
I got a kind of pay cut. My next two year comp is going to remain same as that of this year. I am taking in account 15% stock price increase in this when I say the salary for next years are same as that of this year. Funny thing is that Amazon did not worry about inflation as well :) and 15% bump on 1500 stock value is anyway super aspirational. I can see lot of senior engineers making a move out of Amazon because of this BS
