I've an Amazon l6 sdm offer in Seattle, with TCO $340K ( 155 base, 165 sign on , $20k stock). I'm making similar money in midwest where cost of living is much cheaper and I'm a Sr director. does the Amazon offer have very high upside that moving is worth it ?

    Can you write your TC for each of the first 4?years. I think it will drop quite abruptly after your sign on bonus...

    340 then 215 then 315 then 315?

    Is there a sign on bonus for the second year?

    I would much rather live in Seattle then the Midwest. The Midwest is strictly a fly-over zone. You also have no state tax, so you’ll rather come out even in the end.

      CoL is much lower in Midwest and everything (bills, food, insurance, sales tax etc.) Is cheaper in mid west. I won't move for the money

      His or her stock goes up to 160k on the third year. It’s a good deal.

    Getting to L-7 will be an uphill task

    low, shoot for 400k tc.

    To answer your question more directly, there is not much upside to your compensation unless your promoted.

    Even when you are first promoted, your comp will be around 420k and you can only realize that 2 years after your promo.

    Long term, if you become a top tier (top 20%) senior manager (L7), you can make close to 700k

    Base can be 160. What is $20k stock ? Is it quantity (not possible ) or value (too low)?
