Looking for comp advice:
Interviewing at Amazon(Ring in LA) - Senior Product Manager - Haven't given them comp expectations
Google - Location TBD - Level TBD - Haven't given comp expectations
Salesforce - Dallas or Indiana - Product Manager - TC would be 144 - Would fast track to senior PM

What TC should i give Amazon? Better to take a fast track path at SF? How far into Google interview before you know what you are interviewing for?
I have 4 years product experience(1 as PM). Currently in Boston as PM 135TC

    144k in Indianapolis or Dallas will go a loooong way. Great cities, too, though Dallas is silly hot. Indianapolis is fantastic all around. Wary about those “we’ll fast-track you” promises though. More details on the Amazon role? What’s ring?

    I would absolutely hate Indianapolis and strongly disliked Dallas when I visited. I know blind has a hatred boner for Seattle, but the choice of location is clear for me. Amazon equivalent would be 200k imo

      Agreed, 200k would match it. I like Seattle a lot and moved here from the Midwest, but can appreciate Indianapolis and many midwestern cities.

      Amazon/Ring would be SPM, SF would be PM fasttrack to SPM. Adjusting for cost of living, an amazon SPM makes the same as a PM in dallas. Amazon would be consumer, SF would be IT infra. Prefer consumer, but I think I would grow faster at SF even if its not consumer. Thoughts?

      I’m not sure how the promo process works at Salesforce, and while I love the culture and think highly of the company, I still say be wary of those “fast track” promises.

      Yeah. I've been promised and have fallen for the "fast track" shtick before. It's just something hiring managers say when they don't want to hire someone at a higher level.
