Austin $300k+ folks - what are some of your switching options outside Amazon?

If you are L6 or higher and living in Austin, that means your TC is pretty high in that area. But that leads to a different problem, what if you want to switch? That higher TC limits your options, isn't it?

I don't see good Austin based roles from Facebook or Apple or Google.

So, are we stuck? Or need to take paycut?

Note: Currently don't live in Austin but transferring there next month due to family reason. Wondering future growth in Austin.

TC: $300k+

      And how long have you been at amzn? If less than 4 then just wait. I’m biding my time until fb eng shows up.

      Did you get a refresher or will your TC go down after the initial vest?
