Amazon offer Alexa org

Recruiter told me Amazon wants to give offer. I'm L64 at MS, and recruiter said targeting SD2 which seems under level. But apparently SDE2 is a wide band so hoping for comparable salary. The team is in the Alexa shopping org. Recruiter asked me about pay expectation. What is a competitive offer here?

Current TC (Bay Area)
Base 200k
Bonus 20% (last 2 years got this amount)
Stock ~100k / year

    Lol. Their absolute f ing max would be 260k$, more like 245k$. No more bonuses or refreshers till L6 which you should only expect after 3+ years.

      If it’s Bay Area then they should be able to offer 300k+ TC for SDE2

    Adding offer details. The recruiter was apologetic because they can't come close to my current comp for sde2.

    It works to 273, 267, 244, 244 total comp for years 1 to 4. Seems like a good offer for sde2. I will try again after getting principal at MS.

    I had the impression that L64 at MS was close to the second half of the range of an L6 Amazon

    Don't think they can offer 340k+ at L5 anywhere. Ask for L6
