Hi ,
Im a second year Masters student from a Top CS school specialising In ML and AI
I interned at Amazon as Applied Scientist and got a return offer. However they told me that they will tell me the comp two weeks before I’m ready to decide .
Can someone tell me the ball-park range of Comp i can expect ?
Profile :
Excellenr Grad and Undergrad GPA
Two papers ( One long as second author and one workshop as first author in Tier 1 conferences )
2YoE as ML Engineer in India
Excellent Internship Feedback

I enjoyed my work thoroughly and would like to continue doing similar work . Can someone point to other companies which might offer similar positions ?
Referrals are welcome :-)

    L4 AS you probably will be in TC, 160-180 range. I’m guessing @Lange is referring to L5 AS.

    Congrats! L4 AS you can expect higher from what I heard. 160-180 is for L4 RS and SDE with strong inclined hires. You can expect 200 because AS is paid higher than RS and SDE, but 180 is fair good for a L4.

    Ask for a friend, she was interned amazon as a RS this summer and her manager promised a return offer. How long after the internship, she can expects GRT hr to reach out for offer details?

    Amazon is probably going to offer you TC in the $250-300k range.

    Given your profile I'd suggest you also interview with Two Sigma, Jane Street, Hudson River Trading and PDT. These firms will probably beat Amazon's first year TC, and handily beat it over the long term if you stay in the industry and role. But you'll be working on financial problems, not tech problems.

      Generally Masters Applied Scientist Start off at L4 . Isn’t $250-300k a bit too high for that ?

      Your base doesn't have much room to move, but if you have competing offers you can definitely get to that range for total.
