Evaluating GCP vs AWS

I have an L7 offer from AWS in midwest.
Q 1) TC - 370-400. I was expecting more. Are they low balling? Any comments?
Q 2) Evaluating GCP- But my experience with GCP "sourcer" recruiters hasn't been stellar. Is it worth the effort?

    What is mid west? TC at L7 AWS principal manager is definitely low. Are you sure it's L7?

      For Minneapolis, it looks good. Definitely better then L6 what I have seen so far. Title is misleading. I thought L7 is always principal manager at Amazon. Is it SDM 3?

      on this site, there's a mention of 700k as a TC on L7. sounds unreasonable.
      any comments on the GCP chase :-) ?

      Not in Minneapolis or austin, may be in Seattle or bay area.

      GCP, I don't have any clue. Azure is something I can help though.

      Ok. That’s the lowest part of the band. Should ask for more.

      I’m Colorado and make that as L6 SDE AWS. May depend on your interview performance though.

    Thank you, can i DM you? I heard median TC for L7 is between 450-500K. Since Amazon pay structure is rather stringent in how it's paid out(maybe stuck with same TC for next 4 yrs), you must negotiate. The scope of L7 is large though and you could later switch to Google L6 if not L7.

      Its not accurate that you will be stuck with the same pay for 4 years. The initial offer does show a 4 year picture but ifs not static.
      OP: IMO L7 at Google will be a better option considering the comp and market acceptance of that level. Being in Amazon as an L7, it is unlikely to achieve an L7 in Google. Other way might be easier.

      phone interview and then onsite. of the onsite - 1 was very technical. But 3 were mainly behavioral - on their leadership principles

    It’s funny when people in low cost of living cities expect offers like they like in SF/NY/Sea. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.
