    Go for the equity rather than the sign on.

      Vesting schedule—after your fourth year you might have a cliff. Once the signing bonus goes away, the base isn’t that great. During my time there many of the people complained about the refresher schedule. (Full disclosure, I worked there, came in as an L6, got 150 stock with 100k sign on, base was 150)

    I didn't realize PMs are so underpaid at Amazon. I thought it was just 15%...

    • AT&T / Product GOFb61
      If it was for platform AWS or something I’d believe it, those highly technical roles pay a lot

      Dell, how did you come up with 315K? Do you mind sharing the breakdown? Base, yr1 bonus, y2 bonus, RSU?
      Jun 20
  • Amazon bruce80
    You could probably get an additional 30 k each year of your sign on, plus 15 more RSU's total

      Thanks. So you're suggesting $250k is a good target?
