Average comp for my experience and level in Seattle
EDIT: Highlighting that total experience is 7 years, 4 of which are with Amazon since some comments glossed over it.
I work for Amazon in Seattle and my 4 years are coming up soon. I m pretty sure I could make more if I leave. The retail layoff news is discouraging so I am starting to collect information beforehand. I am rated top tier in my team (manager told me).
Assuming $1300 stock price, year 4 comp is at $246k (ending this year). My total comp in year 5 will be $175k with the refresher and I don't want to take a paycut. I am an SDE2 at Amazon with a total of 7 years of software experience and 2 years of researcher experience before that. I have over 4 years of experience in ML and data science. What would be an appropriate level and comp at other companies in/around Seattle for me?
