Evaluate my total comp

I'm at Amazon in a finance role making 160k in Seattle. I have 7 years of experience...Do you guys think I can do better? Should I look at Finance roles in Tech or should I start looking into banks? I'm afraid that banks will pay possibly more with bonus but have ridiculous working hours...

    Sounds pretty normal to me, what function are you in and what’s your level?

    It’s not worth it to sacrifice your WLB in banks for the money that you have to pay a half in tax.

    Amazon caps base pay at 160. They should also offer cash bonus for two years and stock options. Do you have those details?

    160k base with 7 years of experience in Seattle sounds decent.

    Banks have mostly hit a perpetual 1-3% growth rate. This implies that growth is stalled. Results in constant churn. That results in low maturity processes and tech. Their tech stack is old, fragmented and has different set of priorities.

    Politics at Banks is at an elevated level due to limited opportunities when compared to Amazon. Cultures suck at Banks. You have to be very savvy or you'd get whooped.

    Join Facebook's finance if you just need pay bump.

    As long as you dont go into ibanking hours are fine. Unfortunately there isnt a lot of banking in Seattle.

    Sounds about right. Can't hurt to go get an offer to make sure you are at market.

    Don't join banks. Move to Google for better compensation etc.

    Why go into banking? Any company has a finance department

    Depends on what you do in finance. Also, is 160k just the base?

    Were all your 7 yrs at Amazon?
