      Why is salary disclosing such a taboo here in US?

      I would say any place is good to talk about it. The more coworkers know about each other’s salary, the less power hiring companies have on current or prospective employees to low ball them.

      That sounds pretty good for living in that area, or am I wrong? Maybe I should work for an insurance company.

      More or less middle class in the Bay Area.

    • Travelers / Design TkBb74
      I'm actually a little underpaid for the area. It's not cheap. Tho compared to SF/NYC/Boston, the ratio of salary : cost of living ratio is way better.

      G10? Which org - this sounds lower than it should be.

      G10 yep. Jasper - recent acquisition which I suspect may be the reason for the lowball

  • Amazon Xtih88
    Art director, Seattle. Been with amazon for a little over 4 years but have 6 yrs exp total.
    Base $82k, signing bonus $20k, RSU vested for this year (57) $84k, RSU awarded (still vesting) for 2017 (30) $44k.
    Honestly have no idea where i fall in the spectrum of being paid. Over? Under? Idk 😅

    • Amazon / Design 4882&:39&2
      Is that for fiscal year 2017? Does that imply your TC for Amazon’s fiscal year 2017 to be ~210k?
      Feb 22, 2018
    • Amazon Xtih88
      I had 57 RSU vest in 2017.
      I was awarded 30 RSU in 2017.
      So what I made for 2017 is different than my TC because of vesting schedule.
      If we are only talking about TC awarded to me only for 2017, it’s 126k.
      What I actually made in 2017 is closer to 166k.
      Hope that makes sense!

      I wish it was ~210k 😅

      Do you know if you’re L5 or L6? Feels low?
      Feb 28, 2018
    • Amazon The Best
      L5. And I agree - I think my base pay is super low. I have good performance reviews but don’t see my pay reflecting the positive feedback. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      Location?

      Also there is a huge difference in your RSU and the other Amazon designer who replied back in post
      Oct 23, 2017
    • New / Design kGfsy
      I was talking about other Senior UX Designer who gets 85k rsu every year.
      Oct 24, 2017
    • Amazon Stylus
      They said "this year". Sounds pretty vague to me. Maybe they're at the end of their 4 yr period and finally got paid out.

      Are you L4?
      Feb 28, 2018
    • Amazon asdfg12
      Yes, do u know if that’s standard for l4?
      Feb 28, 2018
    • Twitch / Other jokerZ
      I think L4 (in Bay Area) would have around 90-100k, but your base might be acceptable for your market. I’ve seen L4 at 105k here.
      Feb 28, 2018
    • Amazon asdfg12
      Ah ok thanks! I am actively trying to avoid HCOL places so I guess having a lower base somewhat evens out.
