Equivalent levels at other companies.

I'm recently got a promo to 63, lower level of senior at MS like 6 months ago and I have actively started to prepare for interviews. What are the levels I can target at other companies, namely at Amazon, FB, Google etc. I know levels.fyi gives a general idea but looking to get inputs from folks who have made moves similar to what I am targeting. This would help with setting up expectations.

Current TC is just above 200k, which comprises base pay plus un vested stocks per year and average bonus.

      Not really L5. Google down levels aggressively.

      FYI, Google recruiter told me 7 yoe or 6+master's is enough to get an L5 interview.

      SDE3 is not likely either. Amzn downlevels aggressively as well.

      E5 is realistic if you do well in interview.

    SDE2, E4 and L4 is the equivalent.
    Fb E5 possible if you are extremely good at interviewing.
    SDE3 and L5 not possible.
