Does Amazon pay SWEs competitively?

Interviewed a few years back and got an offer that was less than my then TC so I turned it down. Since then I've been approached by their recruiters multiple times but I don't know whether it's worth my while to interview. FWIW I'm happy with my current team.

TC: 420k
YoE: 8

    Very few companies will pay more than 420k for 8 YOE.. I would guess only places like FB / Citadel / Netflix will be able to beat that.

    Don’t bother, it is not worth it even if they pay $470k, which they won’t.

    What level? Amazon L7 will beat that.

      OP
      I'm an L5 at Google, but of course I don't know what level Amazon would offer me since I haven't recently interviewed with them.

      I meant current level. Yeah you're already Amazon L6 equivalent. Only move for L7

      What's your TC breakdown now?
